Namaskar AS Kumar,

I am not a medical doctor. If you have a student who is experiencing vertigo problems, and you think Pranayama might be the cause, he or she should seek medical attention right away.

It is said that forceful Pranayama techniques can sometimes irritate, or cause, a condition inside the inner ear, such as an inflammation.

If a student has a pre-existing inflammation, forceful Pranayama techniques, or breath retention, may provoke the condition.

The student should seek out a physician, if possible with Ayurvedic knowledge, just to be sure.

However, mild practice of Nadi Shodhana Pranayama would usually be a good substitute for a student who is prone to vertigo, and this may even help the condition.

Again, a professional medical opinion is a priority.

Namaste,

Paul
