Lower back pain due to Pranayama?

People complain of suffering from pain, aches and various other ailments while practicing Yoga. But how many of them follow the laid-down system then? Yoga is a systematic approach of mind control through breath-control leading to state of samadhi – union of individual consciousness with cosmic consciousness. Pranayam is central to it as the same primarily deals with perfection in breath-control however what precedes pranayama can not be ignored.

Can i do Mild Bhastrika for indigestion?

My recommendation has been that self-learners better restrict themselves to Asana only. Even learning asanas by self is not highly recommendable. There is nothing called mild-bhastrika first of all. The sole tone of this pranayama is not ‘gentle’ it ought to be vigorous, deep and even jerky to be accurate. So if you plan to do mild-bhastrika.. it would not be bhastrika at all instead a session of gently fast paced deep breathing.
