Unraveling the Mystery: Why Do Headaches Strike After Yoga?


Dehydration Dilemma: Yoga can make you sweat profusely, leading to dehydration, a common headache trigger

Posture Problems: Incorrect postures during yoga may strain neck and shoulder muscles, causing tension headaches.

Breath Control: Irregular breathing patterns can disrupt oxygen flow, contributing to headaches post-yoga.

Too Much Too Soon: Overexertion in advanced poses can strain muscles and trigger exertion headaches.

Hunger Headaches: Practicing yoga on an empty stomach may lead to low blood sugar headaches.

Eye Strain: Constant focus during yoga on one spot can strain eye muscles, causing headaches.

Stress Release: Yoga can release built-up stress, which sometimes manifests as a headache.

Caffeine Withdrawal: Skipping that pre-yoga cup of coffee may lead to caffeine withdrawal headaches.

Allergic Reactions: Environmental allergens in yoga spaces can trigger headaches in sensitive individuals.
