Sometimes when I do inverted postures like the headstand I get a migraine headache. Is there a way to overcome this? What should I do?
One of our facebook friends asked this question and received several replies - what would you advise?
Jordan: I submitted a similar question. I sometimes have a Vertigo episode with inverted asanas.
Marishka: Don't do inverted postures.
Farahekhan: i fainted trice.....i felt i can't practice yoga anymore!any advice plz
Siobhain: practise the hare and learn slowly to get use to the pressure, keep feet on the ground
Sita Chaitanya: I think first you have to make sure there is not a medical condition that needs to be treated. Then I would go very slowly, at first only holding for a few seconds and gradually building up. Siobhain has a good idea, to keep the feet on the ground.
Farahekhan: thank u very much ( siobhain n yoga v)
Karen: I have noticed many people come straight up after inversion, whereas I have been taught to rest in childs pose immediately after. This is very important to stabilise the blood pressure.
I also have had migranes in the past, but never caused ...by inversions.
