Yoga for heart health

Yoga uses controlled breathing, meditation, and a series of poses to improve the health of your body and your mind. Taking a yoga class a couple times a week or using a streaming service to bring a yoga teacher into your living room every few days reduces stress, lowers your anxiety, and improves your blood pressure.

In short, yoga helps your heart. Here’s how.
