Can yoga reduce blood pressure?

Hypertension or high blood pressure is a condition wherein the blood pressure in the arteries increase to high levels. Yoga asanas require focused deep breathing which helps to naturally lower the blood pressure and hypertension, especially when it is due to stress.

Obesity is another factor leading to hypertension. Practicing yoga regularly along with a regulated diet helps stabilise body weight. Yoga infuses one with vibrant positive energy and helps release hormones that not only makes one calmer but happier too again working towards stabilising blood pressure.

The regular practise of asanas and pranayama helps harmonise the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems and again steadies the heart rate.

Make time in your schedule to practice these asanas and heal well.
