YOGA POSES TO REDUCE TENSION HEADACHES

If you're prone to headaches, you probably know some of the triggers:

Stress, lack of sleep, hunger, allergies, sinus problems or eye strain. But have you considered that your posture, and a lack of oxygen, could bring on your headaches?




Many people sit or stand with rounded shoulders and head jutted forward.

           

Poor posture affects your respiratory system and blood circulation to the brain; which can cause muscle tension—resulting in a headache.


If your headaches arise from tension, then you might want to consider yoga. Yoga helps ease tension headaches by relaxing muscles in your head, back, and neck, boosting circulation to your brain and upper body, and improving your posture.


The best time to treat a headache is at the first sign of the pain, before the muscles go into spasm. To reduce the amount of headaches you experience, incorporate the following yoga poses into your daily routine.
