YOGA: Sequence A to Lower High Blood Pressure & Increase Circulation

Yoga has been shown to positively impact blood pressure regulation through its ability to activate the relaxation response, reduce sympathetic nervous system activity, and improve endothelial function, ultimately resulting in lowered blood pressure levels. Additionally, the combination of physical postures, controlled breathing techniques, and mindful relaxation in yoga practices enhances vasodilation, improves arterial compliance, and stimulates peripheral blood circulation, thereby promoting overall cardiovascular health and increasing circulation efficiency.


Tadasana (Mountain Pose): This foundational pose helps improve posture and body awareness, promoting overall circulation and relaxation. It also helps in relieving stress and anxiety, which can contribute to high blood pressure.

Ardha Uttanasana (Half Forward Bend): This gentle forward fold stretches the back and hamstrings while encouraging blood flow to the head. It helps to reduce stress, calm the mind, and enhance circulation.

Paschimottanasana (Seated Forward Bend): This seated forward bend provides a deep stretch to the back of the body, particularly the hamstrings and spine. It stimulates the abdominal organs and enhances blood flow throughout the body, aiding in reducing blood pressure.

Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose): This gentle backbend opens up the chest and increases lung capacity, improving circulation and blood flow. It also helps in strengthening the back muscles and reducing fatigue.

Salamba Sarvangasana (Supported Shoulderstand): This inverted pose increases circulation to the upper body and head, promoting healthy blood flow and reducing high blood pressure. It also stimulates the thyroid and parathyroid glands, which can have a positive impact on blood pressure regulation.

Viparita Karani (Legs-up-the-Wall Pose): This restorative pose allows for passive inversion, which helps to drain stagnant blood from the legs and improve circulation throughout the body. It also induces a calming effect on the nervous system, reducing stress and promoting relaxation.

Anjaneyasana (Low Lunge): This pose stretches the hip flexors and opens the chest, enhancing circulation and releasing tension in the body. It also helps in building strength and stability in the legs and core.

Savasana (Corpse Pose): This final relaxation pose allows the body and mind to integrate the benefits of the previous asanas. It helps in reducing stress, promoting deep relaxation, and supporting overall circulation.
