Pranayama – Educate yourself before you take it up!

Yoga groupDear AD,

Thanks for all the information provided by you and I have almost read all the answers given by you for the negative effects of Paranayama. I do have the same problem as mentioned below:
I have been doing the Pranayama when I was 19 years old and continued for almost 3 years. At that time I was doing it for 1 Hour daily and if possible then in evening as well. I watched this on TV and started it. Also, at that time I was doing Bhastrika 5 mins, Kapalbhati 15 mins, AnulomVilom 15 mins and Bhramari for 10 times. At that time I did not feel any negative effects. Now I am 25 and occasionally do Pranayam. From Last 3 Months I have doing this frequently but in afternoon 11 AM to 12 PM, Bhastrika 5 Mins, Kapalbhati 10-15 mins, Anulomvilom 10 mins or less and Bhramarai…But from last 2-3 weeks My right eye started to fluctuate and my vision got poorer as compare to previous. I keep doing Pranayama and thought that Pranayama will cure it but no improvement. From Yesterday I have stopped it but not getting significant relief after it. I have below issues now:

1) Occasional Hedaches

2) Problem in eye, poor vision

3) Not able to concentrate and always tired

4) Right eye which has slight poor vision as compare to left eye..

5) Not able to think in right way and memory loss…

Could you please suggest the remedy for same? I am so much worried and regret my act of wrong Pranayams, Can this action have caused me permanent damage? Can it be ok itself? Please suggest what problem has caused me this?

Thank you.

Beloved Noname,

If you have read other articles of mine on Pranayam, you would have known that it is not advisable to engage in bhastrika, kapalbhati type high speed pranayamas before completing Nadi-Shodhan regime. In fact Nadishodhan is a full breathing and energy discipline in itself and leads the practitioner not only to physical benefits but also prepares one to take on the further journey (of course if one is interested) in spiritual domain.

All the symptoms you have mentioned are…..

    Dear AD,
    what is the difference between nadi sodhana and anulom-vilom pranayam? Their methods are quite similar.
