Urban Yogis - Hypertension and Yoga

Category:  Meditation And Yoga

Can yoga lower blood pressure? Researchers at Long Island University are at work on this question, which could significantly affect the ways we approach cardiovascular disease and treatment.
Yoga instructors Eddie Stern and Blake Seidenshaw have teamed up with physical therapy professor Marshall Hagins to conduct a study on the effects of yoga on patients with hypertension. The participants note their own perceived results and the benefits of the practice, but will the science back them up?

  • yoga is self centered, isn't that unproductive course...?

  • Saw the video trailer about hypertension and yoga. I have had hypertension for a long while. I am taking meds but their efficacy seems to wane after a while. I know practicing yoga has a great effect on HBP, but I live in an area that has few local yoga/meditation schools. I will start in the New Year online until I can do better. Thanks for the confirmation.

  • I thought YOGA Deepak and on you came here .. Wai Lana posted yoga and she comes on with you here posting..Wai Lana During the times of my life passed in colder climates, I could definitely feel my body slow down as the days became short and crisp. To prevent that common winter sluggishness and keep a healthy glow in my family’s cheeks, I had a simple solution: I’d keep the juicer on the countertop the whole season through … and I’d use it more than ever. She is so thoughtful with her health tips ... Just like you .. so thoughtful with helpful words ... I have Rahul Chavan here typing me to watch om shanti om ... well let me checkout out his India movie ... He is so funny .. God Bless and Thank you ..

  • I feel when someone does Yoga they do it for different reasons. If someone decides to do it for lowering blood pressure, it just might work! :)

    Mona Delfino // 2012-12-25 22:08:23 // //
