Non-irritating youtube yoga

My GP has suggested that I try yoga to help with my migraines, as currently no medication is touching it.
Every yoga video I have watched so far; simpering voices and calming mood music, has made me want to throw things at the screen.
I appreciate yoga is meant to be soothing and calming but I can’t relax enough to anything I have watched so far because I am finding them so annoying.
Any suggestions on what I should be looking for?
Other than stronger drugs!

Yoga with Adriene? She's calming but I don't think most people would call her simpering.

Yeah yoga with adriene is supremely un-irritating! She is perky American but where that would normally be annoying she is just sweet and lovely and takes the piss out of herself a bit. All
Kinds of videos so you can pick calming stuff or more active, find an area of the body you want to concentrate on or do a 30 day challenge.

Some other people have mentioned yoga with kassandra but I haven’t tried her yet as I would feel like I was cheating on Adriene

Adriene is the best Grin
She’s goofy, funny and easy to follow. I couldn’t be dealing with too much hippy dippy shit.

Adrienne is just the best! She makes me feel as though I'm the best yoga pupil ever, and I just chill out so much listening to her.
She's wonderful.

Try tai chi or Body Balance instead?

Oh no, I was hoping on an alternative to adriene. I find her so annoying, with her dipsy thing.

Perhaps it's your mood rather than the instructors. Yoga is mindful with calming music and soft voices there are days I have consciously relax ans acknowledge its me not them.

I really like Erin Motz (Bad yogi). I found Adrienne very irritating.
