It affects the every aspect of our life and leads to development of stress-related disorders such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and many more diseases. Aims and Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate whether regular practice of Ujjayi Pranayama for 3 months can reduce the cardiovascular hyperreactivity (stress) induced by cold pressor test. Materials and… 
Effect of Sudarshan Kriya Yoga on cold pressor response in healthy young adults
TLDR
Comparing the cold pressor response in non-yoga practitioners and Sudarshan Kriya Yoga practitioners implies that the SKY practice can significantly decrease stress-induced changes in cardiovascular parameters by shifting the cardiovascular autonomic balance toward the parasympathetic side.

The effect of Bhramari pranayama on pregnant women having cardiovascular hyper -reactivity to cold pressor test
TLDR
Regular practice of Bhramari Pranayama reduced the cardio vascular hyper- reactivity to cold stress after just 8 weeks, which may be an early indication of the developing pre eclampsia.
Effect of Bhramari Pranayama and Yoga Nidra on cardiovascular hyper-reactivity to cold pressor test
TLDR
Bramari Pranayama and Yoga Nidra together can signifi cantly alleviate stress induced changes in cardiovascular parameters and reduce cardiovascular hyper-reactivity to the cold pressor test.
Effect of Short-Term Pranayama and Meditation on Cardiovascular Functions in Healthy Individuals
TLDR
This study showed beneficial effects of short term (15 days) regular pranayama and meditation practice on cardiovascular functions irrespective of age, gender, and BMI in normal healthy individuals.

Immediate effect of slow pace bhastrika pranayama on blood pressure and heart rate.
TLDR
Pranayama increases frequency and duration of inhibitory neural impulses by activating pulmonary stretch receptors during above tidal volume inhalation as in Hering Bruer reflex, which bring about withdrawal of sympathetic tone in the skeletal muscle blood vessels, leading to widespread vasodilatation.
EFFECT OF UJJAYI PRANAYAMA ON SELECTED PHYSIOLOGICAL VARIABLES
TLDR
It was observed that eight week training programme of Ujjayi Pranayama was found to be effective in case of Resting Heart Rate and Resting Pulse Rate where as it was not effective in cases of Rested Respiratory Rate, Blood Pressure, Vital Capacity, Maximum Breath Holding Time, Peak Flow Rate and Cardio Vascular Endurance.
