hi, I have searched and searched on internet for the answer to my vertigo. I am writing this post for help with my vertigo. I want to ask how other people resolved their vertigo and their yoga practice. I have seen a few posts on vertigo. Please answer and be more specific how you resolved your vertigo in the yoga practice.
I have joined this forum especially to find the answers to my vertigo.
I have developed vertigo, BPPV in the last year and a half due to my yoga practice. I have been practicing ashtanga yoga for the last 7, 8 years. I have had vertigo on and off for the last year and a half and sometimes quite severely after my yoga practice. I know what it is, I have spoken to ear specialists and they told me to stop doing yoga. I am quite confident that yoga causes me the vertigo. I do ashtanga yoga primary series, where you do 10 sun salutations and then all the postures. I am practicing my own version now where I eliminated all positions that have my head hanging or inversions. This way I do not get verigo. I cannot do downward dog, or anything that I have my head down or any inversions. I first took the inversions off because I got severe vertigo when I did the inversions. I stopped doing yoga and then when I started again without the inversions I still got it. I then took out all the positions that have my head hanging, such as downward dog and I do not get vertigo that way. It is sad. I love yoga so much and I do not want to give it up. I need help.
Please post if you can help me out. Have you experienced vertigo and how did you resolve it in your practice.
Thank you so much.
