ANSWER: Yes, Sonia, sheetali (i sometimes write this as seetali -- reason I am saying this, some nitwit will come along and call me inconsistent:) is not to be done in unclean or open places since the mouth breathing means air is not filtered as well as it is through the nostrils.

Query: Which is a better option for high blood pressure -- kapalabhati or ujjayi? Why?

ujjayi is more soothing as kapalbahti involves intense stomach pumping which may not be so good for people with a high blood pressure

Ujjayi Lowers BP as it puts pressure on the carotid Sinus.
