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.

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!!!
