I recently encountered a client who came to me for yoga to help her chronic migraines. She described suffering with migraines for 20 years. That’s a long time!

There many things one can do to improve migraines; however, starting a yoga practice is a great first step if one hasn’t already done so. Believe it or not, finding relaxation through breath and helpful poses that aid in the relief of those throbbing painful headaches can work wonders! Relieving stress in general is good for your body and releases inflammation.

5 Yoga Poses To Relieve Migraines

Try meditating or just sitting still for 5 minutes at a time, focusing on the breath. By doing this you can activate your parasympathetic nervous system (rest-and-digest) and calm the sympathetic nervous system (fight-or-flight). Unfortunately we can’t always control our outside environments; however, we can control our inner environments.

Find that peace and calm so you can kick those migraines goodbye!

Namaste!!!

Cure might be a strong word to use for this, but Yoga can certainly helps migraine. Learning how to relax and breathe with yoga are two of those key ingredients. For those whose migraines may be tension related, it can be wondrous. For those migraines that are classic in nature, it is more of a preventative maintenance, but unfortunately not a cure. Migraine is more complicated than that. Yoga is wonderful for overall health, and the techniques one learns from it can improve anyones overall health. Thanks for the article! I like that there are specific poses that are helpful.

I do all of these regularly. While they don't stop or prevent my Hemiplegic Migraine, it is lovely and healthy.

Yoga, stretch therapy, acupuncture, and or or Daily stretching. It's very helpful in lengthening of the spinal cord. This feels amazing when you are able to use this form or these forms of therapy, to alleviate a lot of the symptoms acquired with migraines. Yet there are times that you may physically be unable to do any of those things. It is still worth doing Maritza. It's very helpful.

My migraine headaches have stopped(holding thumbs,still!), since doing yoga regularly. The neck muscles are manipulated and the lymph glands around the throat are drained, and that I think is what or why the migraines don't occur any longer.
