Anulom Vilom At Fast Rate

Is doing Anulom vilom at a very fast rate is safe or not? I do it at a very fast pace. I do it 100 times in 2 minutes. Please let me know if its okay to do it with this pace?

Answer

Anulom Vilom should be done slowly at a comfortable pace. Your speed of 100 times in 2 minutes is too fast and hence not advisable. Each inhalation in anulom vilom is by taking a deep breath and exhalation is slow and uniform taking the twice time as compared to inhalation. For example a beginner can inhale for 4 seconds and exhale in 8 seconds, so one round take 24 seconds.

Hope this helps
