Yoga is an ancient practice that brings together mind and body by incorporating breathing exercises, meditation and poses designed to encourage relaxation and reduce stress.

While proven to have many benefits for both mental and physical health, yoga is also credited for reducing cardiovascular risk factors by lowering blood pressure in people with hypertension, restores “baroreceptor sensitivity,” which helps the body sense imbalances in blood pressure and maintain balance.

Always consult with your physician before starting a new workout program.
