Yoga can offer many benefits to people who suffer from migraine. One of the key health attributes of yoga is its ability to reduce stress and it can also help improve autonomic balance in migraine patients. A 2014 research study into the benefits of yoga for migraine sufferers also demonstrated reduced heart rate and improved vagal tone. Vagal tone refers to the amount of activity in the nervous system and the stronger your vagal tone, the stronger your body is at regulating key organ functions.
