Yoga for Heart

Our life span primarily depends on the functioning of the heart. Routine heart exercise and proper diet are major requisites to maintain a healthy heart.
You are at a greater risk of a heart attack if you do not exercise. Lack of physical activities and heart exercise can be a life-threatening factor which might culminate in the worst heart diseases, both in men and women.
We suggest "Capsules of Yoga" for people who cannot find time i.e Doses of 5 minutes of Yoga as and when time permits. Just like a medicine capsule they work wonders on specific issues when done repeatedly. Our inexpensive, two month personalized program provides monthly consultations with unlimited phone support for effective, long term natural relief.

Activities of a heart

Our heart has essentially two distinct, but anatomically connected pumps:
Right side - Receives blood from body and pumps blood into lungs to gather oxygen.
Right side - Receives blood from body and pumps blood into lungs to gather oxygen.

Yoga Research related to heart exercise

It has been revealed from various research studies that chronic stress is the main factor of heart and other systemic disorders. Sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve controls helps in evaluating the heart rate variability (HRV) due to stress and anxiety.
A research was conducted to observe the effect of regular yogic practices and self-discipline in reducing body fat and elevated lipids in CAD patients. In this study one hundred seventy (170) subjects, of both sexes having coronary artery disease were randomly divided in to two groups in yoga group and in non-yoga group, Body fat testing and estimation of lipid profile were done of the both groups at zero time and after six months of yogic intervention in yoga group and without yogic intervention in non yoga group. Duration of the program for study was 35-40min/day. It was concluded from this study that there was significant reduction in the total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL, DBP, SBP, and heart rate after a regular practice of Yoga for 6-month period. Therefore yogic practice is beneficial for cardiac patients and it reduces the risk of coronary artery disease.
