Yoga Poses for Headache Relief : Yoga Eagle Pose to Relieve Headache


ELIZABETH ROSE: Okay, this is Eagle Arms.
This pose works on expanding the space between the shoulder blades and back. So, all you’re
going to do is sit here in your easy seated pose and we’re going to do one side and then
the other. We’re going to take first the right arm under the left arm. So you’re just going
to cross your arms thusly, across the chest, and then you want to bring the hands into
a prayer pose or as close to a prayer as you can possibly get. So again, looks like this,
right arm under the left arm, and then you’re going to cross the hands. So you’re going
to put the right hand on the right side and the left hand on the left side, your left
side, you right side. And then place the palms together. You’re going to inhale to bring
the elbows up and exhale to press the shoulder blades down, stay here, inhaling and exhaling
slowly through the nose, at least 5 breaths, 8 breaths, 10 breaths, if you got it. You’re
going to feel a widening and a big stretch between the shoulder blades. When you’re ready,
exhale, release the arms, and do the other side, right over left, right hand comes to
your right side, left hand comes to your left side, press the palms together again, inhale,
elbows, exhale, shoulder blades pressing down, and breathe here.

  1. @expertvillage Somehow when doing this stretch I only feel slight pain/stretch in my scapula area, and I don't feel it in my back muscles, but after I release the stretch and breathe in I can feel that I've stretched my back muscles obviously because it's a bit painful in that area (in a good way) to breathe in. Is that alright?
