Do you take any medicines for more than a prescribed period of time?

Pranayama is also a medicine for our body and mind. We should not do Pranayama for many hours continuously.There are specific time period up to which it should be done and may lead to adverse reactions if practiced for longer period of time.

then you should devote time for each Pranayama as described below:

2 minutes - Bhastrika Pranayama
