How does Yoga asanas work?Asana improve cardiovascular efficiency even in a diseased person. Asana involve minimal muscular activity hence minimum production of carbon dioxide. This reduces the level of stress to the heart. Yoga oxygenates the blood & pushes fresh nutrients to all peripheral vessels & capillaries.

Impaired circulation aids in maximum oxygen supply to the brain & all organ, improves alertness, memory & mood.

The vital organs receive a steady supply of the nutrients they need for optimal functioning while you are doing these exercise.

Various asanas immensely helps towards a healthy heart –

Parvatasan ( Mountain pose), Tadasan ( Palm tree pose), trikaonasan ( Triangle pose) , ushtrasan  ( camel pose),  Bhujangasan ( Cobra pose)etc

Pranayam & Heart Disease:

The Breath is bridge between the body & mind. Pranayam is a type of breath work associated with yoga that helps you gain control of your breath & control the energy in the body.

During Pranayam your exhalation is longer than your inhalation & it triggers the parasympathetic nervous system, which helps lower the heart rate & blood pressure.


Meditation is not just method of relaxation & stress management, but also as an aid to strengthen the heart & create more active state in body.
