According to a study published in the journal Neurology, performing yoga when suffering from migraine can help to provide relief from the intense pain. For the study, the researchers closely monitored 114 adults dealing with episodic migraines over the course of three months. In the beginning, the participants were asked to log down their migraine-related details in a journal.
After some time, they were divided into two groups- one was asked to take medication and the other group took the medication and started practicing yoga. The second group performed yoga exercises which involved meditation and breathing. After a period of three months, all the participants who performed yoga daily experienced a decrease in the frequency and intensity of their migraines.
Not only this, but they also reduced the number of migraine pills they were taking on an average.
