  1. Anulom Vilom is Shuddhi pranayam, meant for cleaning of body mind and spirit.
    Shastras say to practice it before doing any Yog practice.

  2. I am doing 10 reps of bhramari in each session. Last week I got mild migraine (throbbing headache) after the session, could it be because of this pranayama.

  3. OP Monga,
    First of all sorry for the late reply & thanks for your valuable comment. Do the breathing exercise systematically, if you feel mild headache in between your session then avoid for some time. Instead of 10 reps do Bhramari Pranayama about five minutes. Day by day increase the time. I don’t think so that you got mild from Bramari, Bharamari pranayama is very good for your CNS and kicks out a general mental related problem.
    May God Bless You.

  4. @Stella,
    First of all we glad to see your comment.
    As per your query, it’s not mandate to perform This Breathing technique after Anulom – Vilom. It’s depend on you, but keep in mind it’s good if you follow the sequence of Pranayama. But if you are running out of time then you can also perform this Breathing technique seperately.
    But our suggestion is, try to perform these Breathing technique in sequence (systematic order/ one after another).
    Thanks & Regards,
    Sarvyoga Team
    Keep practicing.

  5. Some yoga trainers suggest that exalation humming sound should come from mouth with lips closed. In your post, it is said that this humming sound should come from controlled exalation from nose. Please clarify. I am a biginner. Thanks
