how does yoga / stretching improve circulation?

In: 5

When you stretch your muscles compress blood vessels. That compression stimulates blood flow by sort of squeezing out old blood and then new, freshly oxygenated blood is brought back in. This is also why compression socks are recommended for people with diabetes or other issues that cause poor circulation in the legs/feet, it works the same way.
