High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is quite widespread disease among people who turned forty years abroad. It is widespread in India and in most Western countries. High blood pressure not only damages the blood vessels and the heart, but also increases the likelihood of blockage of the coronary arteries, sometimes leading to coronary thrombosis and myocardial infarction. Fortunately, there are many remedies to lower blood pressure. However, they all have different side effects. Therefore, preference should be given to methods reducing the pressure without side effects, in particular, the yoga techniques.


In 1975, a prominent cardiologist Dr. Bombay Datey and his colleague Dr. Bhagat conducted a study of the impact of
Shavasana on patients with hypertension. 86 patients, 68 men and 18 women aged from 22 to 64 years. Starting systolic pressure lies in the range from 160 to 270 mm Hg, and the initial diastolic pressure – from 90 to 145 mm Hg The average value of the pressure was 186/115 mm Hg These patients were divided into three groups: (1) – 15 people, did not receive any treatment except for placebo for a month before starting the Shavasana ; (2) – 45 as a result of reception of medicines reduce the pressure to near normal levels; most of them have taken the drug for more than two years and had a stable demand for drugs. Some have tried to reduce the dose of medication, resulting in increased pressure; (3) – 26 people who took drugs in various combinations, but did not reduce the pressure to a normal level.
