From this VCD swami ji has explained as how vulnerable we our nowadays to various types of cardiac disorders due to our sedentary habits and living standards. So in this he throws light on various types of yogic postures or asanas that are beneficial for not just those individuals who are suffering from any types of cardiac diseases but would also helps to curb down the development of cardiac disorders.

As we all know that Coronary Heart/arterial Disease, CAD, simply means suffering of heart muscles due to short supply of oxygen. It occurs when arteries get constricted by plaques (semi solid emulsion of LDP and calcium). With this restricted passage for oxygen rich blood, heart needs to pump more, further straining itself. Therefore for this purpose yoga provides you not just a healthy heart but also renders you immune to any cardiac disorders. Hypertension, smoking, and high cholesterol (LDL) all contribute to this and in turn, Coronary arterial Disease (CAD). CAD develops over a long time. Since it is a long process, people miss the symptoms till they are around 50 years of age. Chest pain (angina), short breaths characterize CAD. Men and women of both ages are known to get affected by CAD. But usually men are at risk after age 45 and women after 55 years of age (post menopause). Statistics show 50% of men and 63% of women of over 50 years, die from heart attack due to CAD. Those who have a family history are at risk even at young age.

There are further stimulating factors for the development as well as aggravation of Coronary Artery Disease these include smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, bad cholesterol above 240 mg/dL (LDL) are the risk factors. Heredity is also a major risk. It has been proven that controlled yoga combining calming and stimulating measures resulted in reduced serum cholesterol, LDL and triglyceride levels.

Following are the yoga poses or asanas that are beneficial in various types of cardiac disorders:

  • Kapalbhati Breathing:
    • Kapalbhati breathing is a Pranayama technique. Kapalbhati requires that you breathe in rapid succession while consciously controlling the movements of the diaphragm (a membrane separating abdomen from chest.) This exercises the entire respiratory system forcing higher oxygen absorption in a short time. This ensures richer blood to reach cardiovascular muscles regardless of its quantity, thus removing the major complaint.
  • YogaMountain Pose or Tadasana:
    • Tadasana or the Mountain pose is completely balanced standing posture is the foundation for all asanas which start from standing. Touch your heels and big toes to each other with weight balanced evenly on metatarsals and toes spread. Now stiffen and pull up your calf muscles, knee caps, thighs and your hips. Pull your stomach in; expand chest, neck and spine. Release your fingers, drop the hands straight down and keep as stiff as possible.
  • Savasana or the Corpse Pose:
    • This is preferred yogic asana meant for relaxation. Lie down quietly on the floor in a mat, or sheet flat on your back with your arms by your sides. Now concentrate on the flow of your breath. Simultaneously inhale and exhale, inhale and exhale. During the natural stops in breathing after exhalation (and before inhalation) and after inhalation and before exhalation, stay quiet, silent, for a few seconds. This practice brings tranquility and rest, which are healing to the heart. Remain in Savasana pose practicing this quiet breathing for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Sun Salutation or Surya Namaskara:
    • This is a set of yoga exercises that is recommended for cardiovascular health. Do at least 6 to 12 cycles a day. It will help to strengthen the muscles of your heart and help to prevent heart attack.
    • This also helps you to bring in the extra oxygen thus preventing the heart muscles or the body any insufficiency of oxygen.
