The cardiovascular morbidity is increasing in India in recent years. The present study was done to know the effect of yoga on heart rate and blood pressure in healthy volunteers above the age of 40 years. The cardiovascular status of the subjects was assessed clinically in terms of resting heart rate and blood pressure before the start of yoga practice and again after 6 months of yoga practice. The results were compared and analysed with respect to age, sex and body mass index. From the study…

The scientific basis of yoga.

TLDR
An extensive study on Yogic practices at Banaras Hindu University shows beneficial effects; reduction in body weight and a significantly improved pattern of respiratory functions, with lowered rate of respiration, increased rate of expansion of the chest, and increased vital capacity and breath-holding time.

Autonomic responses to breath holding and its variations following pranayama.

TLDR
Pranayama breathing exercises appear to alter autonomic responses to breath holding probably by increasing vagal tone and decreasing sympathetic discharges.
