“Yoga for Migraine” provides a structured series of yoga poses which aim to relieve migraines. Headaches are often triggered and worsened by stress, making this relaxation based therapy likely to provide pain relief. This app can be helpful when practiced regularly when you are pain free to help prevent migraines.
Migraines are a debilitating condition with no clear medically identifiable cause. Ancient yogis claimed that migraines were caused by weak air in the body and stress affecting the nerves. Today they affect millions of people, and are worsened by our modern lifestyle.

Ratings and Reviews
I don't normally write reviews but don't spend your money on this one. It doesn't talk to you it just doesn't feel like yoga no coaching you can't close your eyes and be in the moment because you have to watch the screen to know what to do. It provides written direction but I want to hear it so I don't have to stare at the screen. Isn't that the point of yoga "unplug" and relax? How can you do that when you have to stare at the screen ESPECIALLY with a migraine!!!!!!
Not very useful
There is no narration, so you have to be looking at the screen all the time. The breathing pace is way too fast - it was stressful to try to keep up! (and the sounds for inhale and exhale seem reversed)
You'd be better off finding a viniyoga instructor and developing a personal practice.
Love this app. After a long day at work I usually get a pounding headache. Combining the breathing with simple yoga asanas makes the pain melt away. I have even noticed that I get migraines almost never after using for 1 month now. Given 4 stars since paid for this app, so now that it is for free for a limited time, you better snag it!! Still totally worth the money, saving so much not having to buy Excedrin.
