Our hair turns grey with age, there's no escaping it and once your hair has lost it's color, there's no going back. But not all grey hair is a result of the natural aging process ...
Stress, anemia, thyroid conditions, nutritional deficits, hormonal problems and other health-related problems, can cause the premature greying of our hair.
If stress is the cause of the loss of color in your hair, yoga is a very effective way to fight this. It is scientifically proven that a yoga class reduces students stress levels with 20% !
Asana's like Sirsasana (Headstand), Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand), Adho Mukha Vrksasana (Handstand) and Halasana (Plough Pose) are inversions. This means that blood with nutrients are send to your scalp, reducing grey hair.
A third way yoga prevents grey hair is with Pranayama. This is the natural breathing technique we learn during our practice. We breath slowly and through our belly. Conscious breath not only reduces your stress levels, it also increases the blood flow to the different parts of your body.
In general, yoga makes you healthier internally and makes your entire body function better!
