Home Bikram Yoga Testimonials Migraine



I would like to share with you how Bikram Yoga has changed my life.

I have been a migraine sufferer since the age of 6. My migraines were so frequent and severe that I would be completely incapacitated for 24-72 hours about once a month. In 34 years, I have seen countless doctors, specialists, and a neurologist and even had a CAT scan to try to get an explanation for my pain. I tried many conventional and alternative methods of medicine never ruling out anyone who claimed they could help me. I willingly tried virtually every type of migraine medication on the market to no success and eventually resigned myself to the fact that migraines have always and will always be a part of my life.

Three years ago two good friends who were visiting from Florida introduced me to Bikram Yoga. However, it wasn't until about a year ago, that I decided to really give it a try. I started out going a couple of times a week and gradually increased my practice. Basically, I was hoping to get back into shape after spending the past ten years being a stay-at-home Mom. 

It wasn't until last fall, well into my “60 days of hot yoga” that I discovered that it had been at least two months since I had my last migraine. It is now September and I am celebrating being migraine free for a full year! I have no explanation other than I have been practicing Bikram Yoga at least 4 days a week and I feeling stronger and better than ever.

I am forever indebted to the 26 postures of Bikram Yoga for changing my life and freeing me of migraines. Thank you to all the instructors and fellow students.

I am diabetic type 1 and have been injecting since 1989, when I was diadnosed age 6. I have been lucky to learn a great deal from my diabetes.

In March of 2002 my heart beat increased to 200 beats per minute. The electrical current in my heart malfunctioned due to the scar tissue from my 1985 heart attack. My good health from practicing Bikram yoga kept me alive.
