Hangover Yoga To Help Stretch Off Your Alcohol-Fuelled Night

Hangovers are, generally speaking, the worst. Hangover yoga, on the other hand, might just make the alcohol-induced headaches and nauseousness well worth it.

Whether you're new to the practice or a fully-fledged yogi, we can guarantee that there's nothing a downward dog can't fix.

Glass of water and yoga mat at the ready! (Tinkly music is optional.)

How to do hangover yoga

To kick things off, sit on your yoga mat with your legs crossed and take a deep breath. Roll your shoulders and move your head from side to side.

Inhale and stretch your arms out in front of you, interlace your fingers and sweep the arms high so that you're stretching to the sky. Exhale and repeat the process again.

Next, take your left hand and place on the right thigh. Twist your upper body, ensuring that you breathe throughout the stretch.

Return to the centre, torso straight and roll your shoulders, then move into the tabletop position (on your hands and knees). Bring your toes together and place your knees far apart on the mat. Then, gently start to move your body around in a rotating motion (if you're unsure of what we're talking about, refer back to the video).

Once you've had enough of that (or if you start to feel a bit pukey), bring your body into the child's pose which involves sitting on your knees and stretching your arms across the mat with your face down - also touching the mat.

Stretch your back, reach through your fingertips and sink your hips down towards the mat making sure that you take plenty of deep breaths. If, at this point, you fancy pushing yourself then tuck your chin onto the mat too.

When you're ready, sit up and move into the downwards facing dog position. Although, if your head is banging then avoid, avoid, avoid!

Paddle out your downwards facing dog by moving your legs in a cycling motion.

Then move into a standing position, bend over in half and place the back of your hands flat on the floor. Feel the stretch.

Slowly come to sit down on the mat with your feet out in front of you. Fold your body forward into your legs and then let your body relax.

If, at this point you've had enough then stop what you're doing and reward yourself with a hearty fry up. If not, then continue watching the video and enjoy the rest of your hangover yoga sesh...
