Abstract

The Yoga is an art of developing mental and physical health of the body. The study was done on 30 hypertensive male patients undergoing the treatment since 3-17 years. The basal recording of cardiovascular parameters like Blood Pressure [Diastolic and systolic], Heart Rate, Pulse Pressure and Rate Pressure Product were taken. After that, they were given the training of yoga exercises like Shavasana and Pranayama by a trained teacher for every 6 days of 6 weeks. Then again the recordings of the cardiovascular parameters were taken. It was found that there was a statistically significant decrease in all the cardiovascular parameters. The yoga exercise shows a strong tendency to improve the Autonomic Nervous System through enhanced parasympathetic nervous system and leading to decrease in the sympathetic tone in the skeletal muscle blood vessels. Thus by these results , it can be concluded that the yogic exercises can be treated as an alternative therapy for reducing stress disorders in persons suffering from essential hypertension.

Key words:
