Yoga for Heart

Begin with easy asana like Vajrasana, Ushtrasana, Shalabhasana, Makarasana, Sinhasana, Pavanmuktasana & laughing exercise. Increase the duration gradually & practice Shavasana in the end.

Pranayam, Nadi shodhan, Kapalbhati & Brahmari are very beneficial.

Practice Yog nidra for 20 to 40 minutes everyday. Close eyes for 30 minutes & listen to favourite music.

A heart patient should never take bath with cold water. If the patient complains of discomfort due to treatment then make him lie down on the bed.

If the patient feels healthy then he should take small strolls & do some light exercises for relaxation.

The heart patient should rest whenever he or she feels tired. Hastiness of any kind is to be avoided. Use very little amount of water at the time of eating food. Drink water in gulps & do not fill the stomach suddenly. Do not drink very cold water.

Meditation helps in strengthening the heart; therefore practice it in a quiet place.

Be affectionate to all, love improves heart condition & negative qualities like jealousy, hatred, & anger increase the risk of heart disease.

Be positive & laugh whole-heartedly at least once a day. Avoid noise & air pollution.
