Welcome to the forum. Thank you for posting.
Since you’ve opted to post about this not only here but on another thread, started by another member, about something not related to vertigo, I’ll try and reply to both of your comments.
First, as a community member it’s helpful when we do not “hijack” an OPs thread. Yes it can happen and I certainly understand your position relative to vertigo. And of course you are entitled to it … but know that it redirects the other person’s inquiry and we really try to stay focused here in the thread on the topic at hand. Hopefully you’ll join us in that endeavor.
In your other post you state specifically that “yoga causes vertigo”. I’m sorry, this simply is not accurate. First, the discourse is about asana, the physical practice. Yoga is a much broader practice encompassing meditation, yama, niyama, pranayama etc. Even with that in mind, asana doesn’t [I]cause[/I] vertigo. If asana [I]caused[/I] vertigo every practitioner that took up asana would also have vertigo.
So let’s clarify this …
Poor practice causes problems. This statement applies to dance, martial arts, tai bo, pilates, and piano … as well as asana. If there is a lack of integrity in the practice, a lack of proper alignment, a lack of sound intention for it, and a propensity on the part of the doer to approach said practice with aggression, violence, and pushing … there are problems.
What is important to understand is that a sound practice, properly guided, with a wholesome intention doesn’t create harm. The absence of these things, a choice not to listen, or a poor choice in guides, may.
Specifically to the issue, there are ways to deal with vertigo. For persons wishing to do so through yoga I suggest a properly trained instructor above the ERYT-500 level, who is therapeutically trained by someone of some worth, and knows what they are doing. Further, I suggest the avoidance of inversions until the issue is cleared or clearing. It would also be helpful for said persons to consider seeing a skilled chiropractor to make sure there’s no vertebral subluxation in the cervical spine. In those cases it is possible to have remedy in one visit.
Again, a qualifies yoga therapist (which the consumer must shop and vet) can absolutely provide helpful practices to remedy vertigo. And just as vertigo isn’t caused by yoga it isn’t “cured” by it either. Both are created by the student
