Traditions of maintaining the body warm in the face of high intensity physical activity has traces of beginning with the Japanese warriors, the Samurai.  Experts in Japanese medicine assert that backwarmers were worn for centuries under the samurai armour, and they are perfect for doing yoga, pilates, fitness and sport. Benefits even extend to pregnant women and work to keep vital organs such as the kidneys warm resulting in improvements to blood circulation throughout the body.
