  • This is a great video, I have been doing yoga every day for almost two years now thanks to you and it has helped regulate all manner of things! If I could make one request it would be for a migraine practice that could be done in bed, when my head is very bad even moving out of my bed is tough. I adjusted this one a bit so I could do it in my bed but it would be great to have one specifically for that. Thannks for everything yours do!

  • Hi Adriene, this really helped with my recovery from a head injury and for the first time in days, I relaxed and felt like I was healing. Thank you. X

  • Adriene I don’t know if you will ever read this but just wanted to say thank you. I get horrible migraines to the point that it makes me feel nauseous. I had one for hours this evening and could not get rid of it even with pain killers. I looked to see if you had made a video for migraines and decide to follow this one. I just finished it and my headache is gone. It normally hurts so much that even putting my head against my pillow hurts. I’m so happy this has worked I could cry. I will now get in bed and follow one your meditations. Thank you ����

  • Thank you Adrien for this remedy. I’ve been suffering from chronic migraine with classic symptoms since my teens and have found no remedy. Some pranayamas helped me to some extent but l still get them atleast once in a fortnight. These exercises helped me a lot. Thank you ��

  • hi mam im 15 weeks pregnent women. i have migrain headch since last week. pls suggest me how to rid.it is any serious isue for me plsss mam suggest me wat can i do

  • I only got two hours of sleep and woke up with a bad migraine, just like last night too, and have to start college in a few hours. I’ve suffered from migraines for years and this was my first time trying yoga, and it felt very relaxing and refreshing. I think it was probably brought on by stress, and following this video helped to ease my pain greatly. Thank you very much.

  • interesting points,if anyone else is searching for home remedies for migraines try Elumpa Migraine Remedy Alchemist (should be on google have a look )? Ive heard some decent things about it and my co-worker got cool success with it.

  • Hi! just want to let you know I found your channel by chance about a week ago when researching about Natural Remedies for Managing Migraine.Prior to finding your videos none of the videos from other channels were really answering my question. I found your video to be honest and helpful and watched some of your other videos too which covers what I wanted to know.


  • Excellent Video clip! Apologies for butting in, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you ever tried Roanayla Aries Apocarpous (probably on Google)? It is a good one of a kind product for discovering natural health remedies minus the hard work. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my m8 after many years got cool results with it.

  • You have given many good home remedies to avoid this problem. I too had this problem and I started my treatment with Planet Ayurveda. Now I am fine. So, if anyone is facing such kind of problem or any other health-related problem. You should go to Planet Ayurveda.

  • I can’t even start to tell you how lucky I feel for finding this channel! I was never into moving my body, always either chubby and out of shape, or slim and out of shape, and during covid I decided to start taking care of my body and started with your “yoga for complete beginners” vid for a week just like you said, transitioned to 30 days of yoga challenge and haven’t missed a single day of practice for the first time in my life! today I woke up with a terrible migraine, suffered through work and thought I might skip a practice for today…. I don’t know if it was the weird feeling of disappointing you (lol!) or just feeling something was missing, but I felt I need the mat and your soothing voice today more than ever! and then I found this video… this was an amazing half hour and I feel so healthy and refreshed! thank you so much <3

  • Another use that I am doing right now is a colloidal silver/EO nasal spray. I am using a steam pot on the stove, that nasal spray and peppermint oil topical on tension spots. I have learned to seek them out and find them. They are surprisingly in odd areas.

  • I had awful migraine and remembered you have a yoga for it. I pressed play and was very comfortable until my little kitten attacked me and started biting my butt �� then she moved to my fingers and toes. �� Thank you Adrienne, you have helped me so much mentally and physically by teaching yoga. I’m so grateful. Love from Finland ��

  • Hey I’ve got a friend that suffers from migraines and I just wanted to know, from those who suffer from them, how much this helps? I always feel terrible when she has them because I can’t do much to help!

  • Here I am, agaaain!:D Today I woke up with this headache and this pain behind my eyes. I had tried out this video before and it worked so I came here again. Although I had a headache and it sucks, I was looking forward to doing this video simply because it just feels so good! To take this time to take care of myself and be gentle with myself, listen and really feel my body, calming my mind, connecting to the Earth… After this practice I feel so calm, so present in the moment, so loving, so… myself! I don’t even have enough words to describe what this practice makes me feel and how beneficial it has been for me. Thank you again, Yoga With Adriene, for sharing all of this magic with us for free! You rock!
