    Is it Safe to do Yoga for a Person Having High Blood Pressure?

    Do you think Yoga could be beneficial for a person suffering from high blood pressure? I am asking this question, because Yoga is like a breathing exercise. Is Yoga safe for a person having high blood pressure then? What is your advice?

    I am not an expert adviser but I think Yoga is a good exercise for people with high blood pressure. I have high blood pressure but I don't exercise a lot, I should do.

    Yeah it actually helped me get mine lower and now am at a safe level without having to take any medications.  Yoga is an excellent exercise

    Yes. You may try nadi shuddi- the gentle alternate nostril breathing without retention-kumbhaka. Pranayama, i.e, with retention may be practiced with the guidance of an experienced yoga teacher. These two are excellent practices.
    Sirasasana- head stand and sarvanga asana- shoulder stand should not be practiced since these two asanas increase the blood pressure!

    Savasana is an excellent practice for many ailments for relaxation and releasing stress!
