Yoga for Alopecia

Yoga changed my life. So I started teaching it. Then I created the first-ever yoga for alopecia course, to help my fellow baldies find peace!

Can Yoga Cure Hair Loss?

Unfortunately, there’s no miracle cure for alopecia. But yoga CAN change your relationship with hair loss, a lot.

How does yoga help hair loss? Research shows yoga lowers chronic stress and inflammation – factors that can trigger hair loss, or stop hair growing back. 

So Less Stress = More Hair Growth. From personal experience, I know this to be true.

Why I Created It

I designed this 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.

About your teacher: Emma

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 4 years, in my adopted home of Hoi An, Vietnam.

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.
