Ah, the hangover. Many a festive evening has been influenced by Mae West’s words, “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful!” which of course can result in a pounding headache, upset stomach, dehydration, achy muscles, and a general feeling of death and regret. Those aching muscles are potentially caused by wearing totally impractical footwear, dancing with great enthusiasm for extended periods of time, attempting physical activity in which you have no business engaging, and/or walking/running/skipping great distances home from the bar, but in any case, yoga can help.

Yoga can gently help stimulate the processes in the body working double overtime to get whatever you drank out of the body so you can feel better. These stretches can also help relieve the ache and soothe pain caused by Saturday Night Syndrome which is when you fall asleep peacefully with your arm, leg or otherwise in a terrible position and remain there until noon. Yoga gently encourages blood to flow to your organs and do their all-important job of removing garbage from your system.
If you are currently hungover, just look at these photos and give some of the poses a gentle try. Drink water, do a couple poses, nap, and repeat. You’ll feel ready to rally in no time!
