Yoga for your heart
Apparently, the relatively gentle stretches and motions lower BP, cholesterol, and other cardio risk factors.
This appeared in the J of Preventive Cardiology--along with a caution that more studies were needed.
Part of the effect may be the relaxation in addition to the poses.
I did yoga a lot over a decade in my twenties and early thirties. It was a social experience as well as relaxing and fun.
Well...maybe can't hurt. If I got on the floor now, I would be staying there...
