Nose Bleeding After Kapalbharti And Alom Vilom

by Mona
(Gurgaon, India)

I have just started doing kapalbharti and anilom vilom for one hour every day in the morning and have noticed blood from my nose. Can you tell me tell me what I am doing wrong? Is this because of rigorous breathing while doing yoga?


Answer

Hello Mona

1. It seems that you have just started doing yoga and that too with alom vilom and kapalabhati for one hour. Doing too much of kapalabhati pranayama is not recommended for beginners. How much exhalations were you doing of kapalabhati in one sitting and did you include sufficient rest after each set of exhalations.

2. Therefore immediately stop doing kapalabhati and resume it only under supervision of an experienced yoga teacher. You may continue with rhythmic breathing and alom vilom, do not hold your breath while doing pranayama.

3. As per the yogic philosophy you are supposed to become comfortable in holding of various yoga poses before attempting pranayama.

4. Suggestions:
~ Discontinue kapalabhati pranayama, if problem persists seek medical attention.
~ Practice yoga asanas, pranayama and meditation as part of yoga practice.
~ Do only 10 minutes each of rhythmic breathing and alom vilom for 3-4 weeks and observe improvement in your health.
~ Learn from an yoga teacher for learning the correct technique and formulation of yoga sequence.

Hope it helps.

Warm regards
Daljit
