nose bleeding

Hari Om everyone,

It's been a while I haven't contacted but I'm glad you are all here!!!

Last afternoon I was practicing sasamgasana(easy pose I guess) for sth like 2 minutes.As I passed on to utthita balasana my left nostril started bleeding and that lasted for 10 minutes!

I have no problem with my blood pressure,neither had a cold. It's the first time I experienced it and I am quite surprised as I practise sirsasana often with no problem.

Any opinions, about it?

Is it possible that this has happened because I spent, before that, 45 min doing Surya namaskar which is much more than my sadhana?

The weather was cold this weekend in Greece-too much snow for what we are used to and to be honest I am a little stressed these days.

Any hint would be great

Na 'maste

Hello Katerina,

It has been a long time and it is good to see you on the forum!

I don't have anything substantial to offer if it was only a one-time problem.

The elevation of 5400ft (approximately 1646 meters) of my city along with the cold and dry climate here makes my nasal passages dry too. I oil the inside of nose most mornings using my finger and sesame oil. This helps as does snuffing a dropper of nasya when I have the heat on in my house.

Kind wishes,
