Yoga asanas for Heart Disease


Daily cardiovascular exercise is highly recommended in addition to a daily program of yoga & meditation. Yoga asanas have been proven to be beneficial for people of all ages & fitness levels & they can serve as an effective tool for preventing heart disease. Research has proven that regular yoga practice with other lifestyle changes can prevent or correct heart disease.  

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.

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.
