migraine aura attacks may cause lack of blood in parts of the brain,making a person more vulnerable to stroke.so would it be beneficial to keep moving with an aura to keep the blood moving from constriction of the vessels in the head to avoid clots?

No: The risk of a stroke from migraine is very small but moving around would not alter it. However aura is not the factor which promotes a stroke as far as I know.
