Namaste Sonu,

I hope that you have stopped all practice with your husband for the time being, as this could be more serious than just transient headaches.

- Has he been to his doctor about these symptoms?

- Does he have high blood pressure?

- Where does the pain occur in his head? Does he also have blurred or disrupted vision with these headaches? Or eye pain?

- Or dizziness when standing up after sitting or lying down?

- Or other pitta conditions?

- Any cervical spine injury or pain?

- Does this happen with other activities or only with asana?

- Does this occur during or only after practice has ended?

- Is your yoga training such that you are able to evaluate and adjust his alignment properly?

So many factors could be in play here. I am unsure if help can be given over the forum. Let's see if someone can and will offer more here.

Do you need assistance finding a well-trained yoga therapist or practitioner in your area? If so, reply with your city and people will offer what they can.

Wishing you and your husband well,
