Can yoga cure alopecia?

Short answer. No. There's no miracle cure for alopecia. But yoga (and mindfulness) can change your relationship with hair loss, a lot.

Yoga changed my life. So I started teaching it. Then I made a course just for alopecians. The first one ever (I think).


Next course starts: April, 2021. Date TBD.

How does yoga help hair loss? Well, research shows yoga can reduce chronic stress, inflammation and even depression. Since these factors may trigger hair loss (or stop hair growing back), it stands to reason: Less Stress = More Hair Growth.

But this isn’t just yoga for stress. This is yoga for alopecia. 🙂

I’ve designed my online course specifically for people undergoing the trauma of hair loss – because I’ve been there myself! I’ve had alopecia on and off for over 20 years. But I shaved my remaining hair off in 2015 – and I’ve never been happier.

Yoga and mindfulness helped me accept my alopecia, deal with anxiety and find joy – even in my baldness! So yoga may not cause miraculous regrowth but it WILL help you live with more ease, and self-love.

What's involved?

Gentle Yoga

A mix of Hatha, Flow and Yin yoga, for all levels – to reduce inflammation, lower stress and increase nutrients to the scalp. Includes access to 15-minute recorded sequences, plus a weekly live 75-minute class.

Guided Meditations

Find connection again with your breath and your body – to feel comfortable in yourself, just as you are. Enjoy calming recorded meditations to learn how your mind works and find more space between your thoughts.

Mindfulness Tools

Practise healing writing prompts, affirmations and habit releasers to live with more awareness and compassion. See how 4 weeks of mindfulness can transform your career, your relationships, your mood…and yep, your hair!

Pranayama is the Sanskrit word for “extending life force energy”. Using special breathing techniques, learn to calm down your nervous system, reduce stress and inflammation and fill yourself up with positive energy.

How does it work?

I’ll email you at the start of the week with your meditation, breathing exercise, affirmation and habit-releaser. Practise these mindfulness tools daily if possible – ideally, for 15–20 minutes in the morning.

Weekend Class

Join live on Saturday / Sunday morning (depending on group preferences). Each 75-minute themed class includes meditation, breathwork and uplifting yoga to help you feel great! After class, I’ll share a writing prompt to record your experience.

All-Access Pass

I’ll upload recordings of all live classes to your private platform of yoga for alopecia videos, which also includes: bonus short sequences for morning and evening, plus a relaxing Yoga Nidra session to help you sleep.

Let’s Grow A Hair-Free Community!

I’d love for alopecians to share the healing practice of yoga and mindfulness – so we can look after ourselves, and support each other, in a positive way.

Still, your privacy, safety and comfort is my Number 1 priority. That’s why the following options are… well, optional… if you’d rather stay anonymous. 😉

  • 1-on-1 intro session: A 15-minute welcome chat with me before the course begins so we can get to know each other – if you prefer, I’ll email you some questions instead. 

  • Group chat: I’ll open the virtual yoga studio before each live class so we can say hello! During class, I’ll mute all participants and you can leave your camera on or off.

  • Facebook group: A safe space to share your experiences about yoga, alopecia – and about the positive changes you’re making to live in a healthier, more mindful way.

About your teacher: Lady Alopecia (Emma)

Yoga on the Beach

Hi, I’m Emma. Founder of “Lady Alopecia” (my baldie brand) and “Om With Em” (my yogi brand). I’ve practised yoga for 15 years – and have taught both yoga and meditation for the past 2 years, in my adopted home of Hoi An, Vietnam.

Courses & Qualifications:

Yoga and meditation have helped me through times of acute stress, anxiety and depression in the past. While mindfulness helps me stay grounded in the present. So whatever’s going on in the outside world, I can come back to myself, and find peace in my breath.

My aim for this course is to help you do the same! I truly believe yoga has the power to heal and transform – and I’m here to share this magical practice with you.
