    So I am still resetting, I guess, and haven't done a lot of exercize...but thought I'd do a few yoga poses. (haven't done for couple yrs)...I got into a nice warrior stance, opened up my chest, hands raised above head in a clasp and took a few deep breathes.....then got verrry faint, lasted a few minutes, scary. This has happened to me in the past as I was beginning a yoga practise....no teacher knew why...:confused:

    any thoughts?

    oh, talked to my son who does yoga and he seemed to get it. When you go into a pose that requires strength to hold, and practise controlled (slow)breathing your muscles are taking a lot of oxygen and your brain is not getting as much in the moment.

    Do you think it's related to cortisol in the same way that dizziness upon standing up is related to cortisol?

    I think the dizziness from standing up is from low sodium status, not to do with cortisol. Cortisol has different effects.

    I think i m replying a little bit late but i must say that there should be two reasons behind it...

    Because i know for a fact when an aunt in the care center had faced the same thing while doing yoga and no one came to figure it that..

    So i figured that there should be two reasons behind it

    1. Cholesterol level

    2. Sodium

    A friend of mine also said that it would be because of sodium status

    You could try checking your blood pressure while sitting, and then check it after you stand up.

    Hi Janagram,

    I have been practicing yoga since last 3 years but never experienced such problem but I will consult with my yoga instructor and will share the solution later with you. Yoga makes my body flexible and helps me in breathing better. Yoga stable autonomic nervous system balance, sooth stress and improve mood.

    low bp from whatever.....could be sodium or low cortisol causing low bp. happens to me with my arms over my head I have low side of bp.....so my cope is I run around first before standing a long time or arms over head.
