    The traction of the forward fold is a great idea!

    Great idea for a post, Christine! Sometimes you just need these little solutions. I will definitely refer back next time a headache strikes!

    Forward fold with rag doll arms or traction is my go to. I’m a tension headache kind of gal and it works like magic 99% of the time. If only I could walk around in that position all the time while I’m at work. That would be interesting, huh?!

    Legs Up the Wall is one of my most favorite poses. I used to sit in this for shavasana all the time! Thanks for the reminder that, headache or no, I could use a few of these from time to time!

    Those all look like such nice, relaxing poses–no wonder they help with headaches! And I love those leggings!

    Oh, I should try this more often. MY headaches are usually stress related, so I’m sure just taking the time to breathe would help!

    So interesting! Thankfully, I rarely get headaches- but I wouldn’t have thought of yoga to help them… great info, Christine!

    I haven’t had as many migraines as I did when I was in HS & College, but I’ve really focused on eating clean and drinking lots of water. When I was pregnant with B I got a ton of migraines it sucked. If I get pregnant again these will be so helpful!! Pinned!

    This is so timely because I have a headache today and I rarely get them. It’s from these kids and early wakeups and stress and not drinking enough water!
    Off to do Child’s Pose!

    Great collection Christine. I hadn’t thought about forward fold for a headache and adding the traction. I just read somewhere that due to our anatomy things like plantar fasciitis can cause headaches. Pretty fascinating. I am always a fan of child pose to heal anything :-)

      Really? So curious about the link between plantar fasciitis and headaches! Off to google that because I do have PF and wonder if that has something to do with my head!

    That neck stretch really got me in a recent class. It looks so simple but made a HUGE difference. Have you tried lightly lifting your fingers up off the mat when you’re in that pose? It’s incredible how one little movement can change the whole pose.

    Oh I LOVE “legs up the wall”…I recommend that pose to so many of my clients! :) Did you know that I went through a phase of despising Eagle Pose? It actually made me angry. HA! Not sure what that was all about, but thank goodness that phase has passed. I also love all forward folds. :) Great post!

    I had no idea that Yoga could help with headaches – I have daily headaches and have told my DR many times over the years that I start every single day with Excedrine – maybe I will try some of these poses instead!!

      It’s kind of the best. It’s nice to put a blanket or bolster underneath your hips too.

    Wonderful poses, thanks for sharing! I also notice that wheel pose always makes me feel better, though that’s a bit intense for some.

      Yes! Wheel pose usually makes me feel better too I think because it’s a heart opener and really helps to open up the chest and take tension out of that area.
