Breathing Problems

by Mani
(Chennai, India)

Sir, I joined yoga class two weeks ago. Now I have breathing problem. But I do Pranayama in yoga class. Why this problem? Is it due to doing yoga?


I feel uneasy to breathe and feel small pain in my lungs. Is this problem due to yoga? Can I stop yoga? Please give me a useful explanation. My yoga teacher said, the reason could be cold and climate change. Please reply me soon.


Answer

Yoga should not be done in case there is a muscular pain or any sort of breathing problem. Yoga is done for feeling better and body should not be pushed into yoga if you are not fit.

1. You have to identify the nature of the pain. It is advisable to seek advice of a doctor. Sometimes the breathing problem can be due to a muscular pain which will go away if you take adequate rest.

2. You have not explained the nature of breathing problem. If you are having breathing problems due to cold or nostrils are not clear, do not do pranayama.

3. Whatever be the reason of your pain, do not do yoga till your pain goes away and normal breathing is restored. If you stop doing yoga and pain goes away start yoga again in consultation with your doctor.

Hope this helps.

Warm regards
Daljit
