    Is it necessary to do brahamri after anulom vilom?

      It’s good, if you perform Pranayama in the sequence. If you haven’t ample time to perform then perform the pranayama on the basis of your time.

    Anulom Vilom is Shuddhi pranayam, meant for cleaning of body mind and spirit.
    Shastras say to practice it before doing any Yog practice.

    I am doing 10 reps of bhramari in each session. Last week I got mild migraine (throbbing headache) after the session, could it be because of this pranayama.

    OP Monga,
    First of all sorry for the late reply & thanks for your valuable comment. Do the breathing exercise systematically, if you feel mild headache in between your session then avoid for some time. Instead of 10 reps do Bhramari Pranayama about five minutes. Day by day increase the time. I don’t think so that you got mild from Bramari, Bharamari pranayama is very good for your CNS and kicks out a general mental related problem.
    May God Bless You.
