what being a makeup-artist yogi taught me about beauty

Sarina Zoe is a journalist, qualified yoga teacher, and she is the founder & editor of the blog PRAVAYAMA, The Modern Yoga Lifestyle. “For 11 years I have been helping people look and feel their best.

Alongside eight years of dedicated yoga practice, I have come to view beauty from a myriad of literal and spiritual perspectives.   Advertisements
