Fall In Love With Yoga, It’s Good For Your Heart
It only takes one yoga class to immediately lower blood pressure and regular practice will improve physical, mental, and emotional well-being for long-term health benefits. According to a review of yoga and cardiovascular disease published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, yoga may help lower heart disease risk as much as brisk walking and other conventional exercises. Here’s how it works:
ONE – Performing a variety of yoga postures gently stretches and exercises muscles, helping them to become more sensitive to insulin, which is important for controlling blood sugar.
TWO – Deep breathing can help lower blood pressure.
THREE – Mind-calming meditation quiets the nervous system and eases stress.
Incorporating yoga into your weekly routine helps prevent heart disease and other cardiovascular problems, but, as with any changes to your diet or exercise routine, consult your physician before starting.
