Life gets a little bit to much for all of us at some point and one thing that keeps popping out of every girl’s mouth like vomit is yoga. I started doing yoga about 7 months ago when my running injuries decided to stick around for the long run and I needed something to help me put one foot in front of the other. Since then I have found that taking anywhere from 5 to 60 minutes a day to myself (I have been known to do this in my office during a lunch break) has been befitting more than just my injuries.

I’m sure you can guess the first one, but yoga has… reduced my hip pain. Since suffering ligament damage I was recommended by the doctor to take up Yoga to avoid fluid build up – thus reducing the inflammation and discomfort. Since then, whenever I get a slight niggling sensation in my joints, I’m up and about doing yoga flows dedicated to opening up the hip.

Doing a short yoga flow just before eating or about 10 minutes after improved my digestion and reduced my carb induced bloat belly. If I’m having a really bad day – or have more than five minutes to spare – this is my favorite video to follow.

Apart from the past week, I have been finding myself taking to Yoga when I feel like I need to scream. Some people say count to ten, I say do a little Sun Salutation flow. I have even been on the phone at work while standing in the tree pose…

Yoga has always been brilliant for everyone who suffers from some form of broken sleep. I don’t have insomnia or anything, but for some reason I do always find myself waking up at 3/4 and 6 am (even more now my little brother is on the scene). This video by Adrienne helped me ALOT when my Nan passed away and continues to do so when I know I need to get a good nights sleep.

I had heard yoga could work miracles, but I didn’t expect it to improve the quality and length of my hair. I sound crazy, right? However, like this article explains there is a pose for everything – including hair growth.
