Try different kinds of Yoga to get you going
Fancy taking your Yoga equipment down to a local class but aren’t quite sure where to begin? There are lots of different Yoga-based activities to try - and none of them involve sitting cross-legged in silence.
As the London Evening Standard reported, fitness fans can get their Yoga kicks by, well, trying KickYoga, which combines Thai boxing techniques with deep stretching followed by calm reflection. As well as getting your heart rate up and burning off those post-Christmas calories, you’ll feel great afterwards from all the breathing exercises.
Then there’s AcroYoga, which appeals to those of us who have ever marvelled at the circus. This involves hanging upside down and practising Yoga poses while battling gravity, which is great for toning muscles. Take a friend with you as you’ll need to partner up to do some of the stretches.
If you fancy yourself as a bit of a mover, why not have a go at YogaDance? This is "a unique way of combining free flowing movement with Yoga", explained instructor Katie from Yoga studio Yotopia. "There is a new understanding of how the body best moves and is trained - using spiral movements, pulsing and repetition, instead of linear and static movements."
You may find that once you start taking your Yoga mats to the class of your choice, you’ll want comfortable clothing you can wear to get your poses right. Bamboo Yoga wear is a good option for those who get a bit sweaty as they work out, because it wicks away the moisture on your body and transports it to the outside of the fabric.
Bamboo clothes are made from one of the most sustainable plants in the world, which makes them perfect eco-friendly gifts for green-minded friends. Bamboo has natural antibacterial properties and allows skin to breathe easily, making it the perfect material to wear in hot gym studios.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
