Coming to her personal choice of products, Yami is not someone who likes to endorse every brand that comes her way. She is choosy not only about the brands she endorses, but also about the products she uses. This beauty has glowing skin and she feels that Yoga has helped to cleanse her system and improve her skin.
Yami also advocates that jogging helps to keep your body and mind fresh and clean and this in turn shows in your glowing skin. Her tryst with yoga began back in the days when she would be preparing for her entrance examination for law colleges and would begin the day with a few breathing exercises. This led to a passion for yoga which the actress continues till date. Off late Yami has taken a liking for Hot Yoga. This is a special form of yoga where you practice the yoga pranayams in a room where the temperature is forty degrees Celsius.
