Answer
Hello Vivek

If you have difficulty in breathing, it is advisable not to do any pranayama except rhythmic breathing. Please learn pranayama from a teacher. Here are my suggestions:

~ Learn yoga from a yoga teacher
~ Asanas.  Start with basic asanas that are comfortable for you
~ Pranayama. Practice rhythmic deep breathing.
~ Practice jal neti under supervision.

Hope this helps.

Warm regards
Daljit
