Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • All kind of yoga postures are not recommended for everyone.
  • Beginners should never try tough postures. Always remember that yoga is not just performing tough postures.
  • Definition of yoga posture says that sthira sukham asana. That means asana is the posture by which you feel comfort and can be maintained for long without effort.
  • A good teacher should not put beginners to perform advanced postures.
  • Since you have developed headache and eye pain stop the practice for a while. Apply Ksheerabala taila to the head and massage lightly. It will relieve the condition.
  • If the problem persists please feel free to go for a physical evaluation.
