Good Moves for Good Health

Tried yoga? We think it’s a great way to maintain the good health of your mind and body, and have been featuring weekly yoga poses on Facebook that explore this ancient form of exercise. We chose each pose to inspire your own yoga experience and help you discover the good feeling that comes naturally in the flow of every movement.

If you’re new to yoga, be sure to check with your doctor before beginning. This form of exercise can be challenging and can really make you sweat! But if you do, you could always give our new Tom’s of Maine Naturally Dry antiperspirant for women a try. It’s the first antiperspirant stick made entirely from ingredients derived from nature and it’s clinically proven to keep you fresh and dry without any artificial fragrances or preservatives.
