This study reports the effects of yoga training on cardiovascular response to exercise and the time course of recovery after the exercise. Cardiovascular response to exercise was determined by Harvard step test using a platform of 45 cm height. The subjects were asked to step up and down the platform at a rate of 30/min for a total duration of 5 min or until fatigue, whichever was earlier. Heart rate (HR) and blood pressure response to exercise were measured in supine position before exercise… Expand
Effects of hatha yoga training on heart rate and blood pressure recovery from exercise
TLDR
The researchers aimed to determine if there is modulation of autonomic function, specifically enhanced vagal nerve reactivation and concomitant withdrawal of sympathetic activity, resulting from the yoga training. Expand
Effect of yoga on indices of cardiovascular system in Maharashtrian adolescent girls
TLDR
After yoga training a given amount of exercise leads to a milder cardiovascular response, suggesting better exercise tolerance, and exercise-induced changes on these parameters were found to be reduced significantly. Expand
Effect of Yoga on Heart Rate, Blood Pressure, Body Mass Index
TLDR
Yoga appears to control blood pressure of CAD patients, and there is a significant reduction in blood pressure, heart rate, and BMI in the total cohort with yoga. Expand
Impact of yoga on haemodynamic function in healthy medical students.
TLDR
Regular practice of yoga for a longer period showed ability to improve most of the cardiovascular functions and possibly result in improved management of their daily stress. Expand
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. Expand
Effect of six weeks yoga training on weight loss following step test, respiratory pressures, handgrip strength and handgrip endurance in young healthy subjects.
TLDR
Yoga training for a short period of six weeks can produce significant improvements in respiratory muscle strength and endurance and attenuation of the sweating response to step test by yoga training is demonstrated. Expand
Immediate effect of sukha pranayama on cardiovascular variables in patients of hypertension.
TLDR
It is concluded that sukha pranayama at the rate of 6 breaths/minute can reduce HR and BP in hypertensive patients within 5 minutes of practice, due to a normalization of autonomic cardiovascular rhythms as a result of increased vagal modulation and/or decreased sympathetic activity and improved baroreflex sensitivity. Expand
Study of effects of yoga and pranayam on human reaction time and certain physiological parameters in normal and hypertensive subjects
TLDR
Yoga is a helpful intervention in hypertensive subjects and its effects on auditory and visual RT and on certain physiological parameters such as weight, body mass index, pulse rate, respiratory rate, systolic blood pressure, and diastolicBlood pressure in normal and hypertensive Subjects are shown. Expand
Comparative study on the effect of yogic relaxing asanas and pranayamas on cardiovascular response in healthy young volunteers
TLDR
Post training analysis showed significant decreases in systolic BP and diastolic BP as well as PP, mean arterial pressure and RPP in both asan and pranayam group as compared with control. Expand
Study of Impact of Yoga on Physiological And Biochemical Parameters in Hypertensive And Normal Subjects.
TLDR
It was concluded that in hypertensive subjects whether newly diagnosed or already diagnosed, there is restoration of the altered parameters towards normal. Expand

Influence of intensive yoga training on physiological changes in 6 adult women: a case report.
TLDR
The short-term effects of 4 weeks of intensive yoga practice on physiological responses in six healthy adult female volunteers were measured using the maximal exercise treadmill test, with the suggestion that yoga has some transparently different quantifiable physiological effects to other exercises. Expand
Body composition, cardiovascular endurance and anaerobic power of yogic practitioner.
TLDR
It was evident that some of the fat-folds (tricep, subscapular, suprailiac, umbilical, thigh and calf) and body circumferences were reduced significantly and a significant improvement in ideal body weight, body density, cardiovascular endurance and anaerobic power was observed as a result of yoga training.

The Rate-Pressure Product as an Index of Myocardial Oxygen Consumption during Exercise in Patients with Angina Pectoris
TLDR
HR and HR X BP, both easily measured hemodynamic variables, are good predictors of MVO, during exercise in normotensive patients with ischemic heart disease, and including variables reflecting the contractile state of the heart and ventricular volume may further improve the predictability. Expand
Blood Pressure Behaviour During Physical Activity
TLDR
The results of intra-arterial recordings indicate that stress testing to ascertain the athlete’s blood pressure response to exercise should be tailored according to the specific sport one practises, as well as supporting the current belief that isometric sports are contraindicated in hypertension.

Effect of yogic exercises on physical and mental health of young fellowship course trainees.
TLDR
There was improvement in various psychological parameters like reduction in anxiety and depression and a better mental function after yogic practices and in performance at submaximal level of exercise and in anaerobic threshold in the yoga group. Expand
Effect of yoga on aerobic and anaerobic power of muscles.
TLDR
A significant increase in aerobic power and a significant decrease in anaerobic power was observed and this may be due to conversion of some of the Fast Twitch muscle fibres into Slow Twitch fibres during yogic training. Expand
