Many headaches are caused by tension and stress. In yoga we breathe deeply and relax. The yoga practice stretches the tight muscles in the upper body, releases endorphins (a “feel good” hormone) and relaxes the mind. It helps release tension by increasing blood flow to the muscles, making the nervous system less agitated and reducing a chance of a headache or migraine.
Poses that put weight or pressure on the head and neck should be avoided. If you suffer from migraines, avoid poses that dramatically increase blood flow to the head. If your migraines are severe, avoid practicing yoga poses and lie down in a dark room. BENEFICIAL POSES Seated forward bends–Ex. Both Hands to Ankle Head to Knee Pose here.
