Studies at the University of Texas showed that people who do hot yoga for three hours a week received a decrease in pressure of five mmRT. Another attractive bonus was a reduction in stress levels, which is vital for every person living in the modern world.
Some skeptics say that this slight drop in blood pressure is not worth such troubles as hot yoga. Nevertheless, according to scientists, the pressure drop is even two mmHg significantly reduces the chance of having a stroke or other risks of heart disease. Research is still ongoing to find out finally what exactly brings such benefits to people with high blood pressure, or yoga or its combination with hot air. Nevertheless, in order not to show the results of the study, one thing is clear – yoga is an effective way to improve your health and prolong youth. In addition, you choose where you better spread the rug. It can be the park or the sauna.
