It was wonderful until the bridge pose. I understand the science behind it. My head on the other hand did not and when I sat up my forehead was throbbing. Next time, since I practice next to a wall (small room), I'll simply do legs up the wall. Same thing, not as intense. Thank you so much for creating this sequence.

I'm in the middle of Christa's elements challenge and woke up with a bad headache today. I was so bummed to not be able to do my challenge and then found this! Thank you Fiji, it was exactly what I needed and so helpful!

Thanks Fijii, loved the flowers and the beautiful open area. I did this class with a tension headache and definitely feel better, both psychologically and physically.
Your calm voice and the quiet pace were soothing.

You saved my evening!

I love this class! It's my go-to when I have any type of headache. And while it may not take away all the pain, it always makes me feel better. Thanks, Fiji and David, for adding this class -- I'd love to see more that focus on headache relief. Many thanks!

Thank you. While doing it I realized that most of these movements I was doing intuitively. The bridge pose wasn't good for me, but the rest was good. Would love more and longer.

Mid last year, after back to back migraine episodes, I made a request to David and Fiji for a session to help with migraine. I didn't realize until today that you had made one and put it on the website. Thank you so much. Hope you both know how much this means!

Thank you for this quick and simple class. I was not sure it would help ease my headache and it totally did. I love DoYogaWithMe.com. Fiji, the woods that you were in were breathtaking, thank you for sharing it with us.

This really helped, will be returning time this again and again, ready to hit the pause button so I can stay longer in the poses that feel the most beneficial. Thank you xxx

Not only did this class soothe my head physically, it soothed my mind. I can now start my busy day calm and collected. Thank you Fiji and DYWM.

This also helps to relieve the sinus pressure before it becomes a sinus headache. Wonderful!

Perfect start to a usually stressful first day of school. My 27th year working in a high school is going to be the best because of this start to my day. Thanks

Perfect class for a fuzzy head due to wildfire smoke in the air.
So beautiful to see Fiji in the fresh green forest meadow, and practice calming gentle moves with her.
Thankyou Fiji and DYWM for the whole spectrum of classes and themes!

I woke with a terrible headache and this lovely class has definitely taken the edge off. Thank you, Fiji! Agree with a previous comment re Fiji always bringing in new classes to help us feel better and live better. And one of my favorite things about DYWM is that most classes are shot outdoors. Love, especially during cold winter months -- I can imagine I'm doing yoga on a warm beach :) Many thanks.

When looking for a yoga routine to relieve a migraine, it's important to me that I really trust the instructor. Fiji has my trust! I feel confident when following her instructions that she knows what she is doing, all the while giving those instructions in such a calm and gentle voice. The setting for the practice was absolutely gorgeous. Thank you! I will definitely return to this video .
