Stand on your head in handstand pose for 5-10 minutes and it will get rid of any lingering headache or full blown migraine. Headstands are known in yoga to help promote blood flow to the brain so even if you're a beginner in yoga you can try this pose against a wall a little bit at a time to help ease a pounding headache.

What You'll Need

  • Yoga Mat/ Sand/ Towel/ Carpet (be inventive if you are without any of the aforementioned).
  • 1-2 liters of drinking water

What You'll Do

  • Create a comfortable surface on the floor with a yoga mat/ towel/ carpet and position yourself into a yoga headstand.
  • Hold for 5-10 minutes and gently come down. Repeat 2-3 times until all head tension is released.
  • Whenever you feel a headache coming on, try and do a headstand.
  • If you feel uncomforatble doing this or are a beginner, try it against a wall first.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you have a neck or back injury avoid doing this pose as the pressure can be more painful.
