Class -12 UNIT-3 Yoga and Lifestyle -Yoga for Preventing Hypertension Or High blood Pressure


Yoga For Preventing Hypertension or High Blood Pressure:-


Hypertension or blood  is the pressure exerted on the wall Aastha arteries due to blood flowing through them. More the pressure exerted by the walls of the arteries higher will be the blood pressure. 

Fluctuation in blood pressure may depend upon the level of physical activity performed by an individual.

 A person may experience high blood pressure when he or she is nervous tension or under extreme stress.

 The ideal blood pressure level in an adult should be 120 /80mm Hg . If blood pressure is more than this level ,say 140/90mmHg,then it is known as high blood pressure .
