As the part of evolution, we humans became bipedal, i.e. we started walking on two legs instead of four.

Front legs became hands and spine became erect.

The erect spine bears the load of the body in addition to the gravitational pull.

(During pregnancy, due to increase in the tummy, pregnant ladies feel spinal discomfort.)

With advancement in our culture came COMPUTERS, LAPTOPS AND MOBILES.

So erect spine started bending due to these gadgets and what we see nowadays is an EPIDEMIC of spinal problems.

Reason being less than adequate care of our physical and mental self.

Yoga helps to strengthen the spine, to keep the body fit and refresh the mind from the stress of work.

Here are few simple spines bending and twisting asanas:

1. Ardha Kati Chakrasana

2. Ardha Chakrasana

3. Padahastasana

4. Ustrasana

5. Paschimottanasana

6. Dhanurasana

7. Bhujangasana

8. Salabhasana

9. Sarvangasana

10. Halasana

The list is endless, as all yoga postures strengthen the core of the body.

Doing Yogasanas leads to improved body posture through the strong spine, and one enjoys the perks of good physical and mental health.

The biological age progression is reversed, and one looks younger and calmer.

Yoga is not a therapy for ailments nor confined to Ashtanga yoga and practice for an hour or so.in fact yoga is to be rehearsed for 24 hours.it is just not Milan of Atma with Paramatma as people quote Yuj means joining.yoga is practical aspect of Vedic science. 

Aspects of yoga are beyond Asthanga. Yama, niyama, Asana,  Pranayam, Pratyahar, Dharna, Dhyan, samadhi, Laya, bhakti, kundalini, mantra, Japa, gyan, swara, kriya, karma etc.

If one starts following these aspects, he will have to devot 24 hours a day and therefore yoga becomes a lifestyle.

For god sake do not consider yoga as therapy.it is just a by-product.

Shat Kriyas are meant for cleansing the body. The nose and sinuses get cleaned The gastrointestinal system gets cleaned Eyes become strong and powerful The lungs and the central nervous systems are also cleaned Prana flows better way in physical body.

Try doing nadi sudhi pranayama, kapalabhati, bramhari followed by few back bending asanas. This will improve your lungs capacity and makes your respiratory system more smooth and efficient.

Namaste,

I am a Neurosurgeon, passionate about Yoga and I would like to tell you that our body responds to physical or mental stress by increasing sympathetic nervous system activity, thus raising blood pressure, however many yoga practices relax the mind and body, activating the parasympathetic nervous system, leading to normalisation of all functions of body and mind.

 

Now, it is true that some yoga practices do increase blood pressure, most of the yoga practices calm down the body and mind.

There is clear mention of contraindications for yoga practices in a specific manner. One should ask the Guru and avoid exercises which are contraindicated for him/her according to their condition.

 

There are specific yoga practices for high blood pressure, which performed regularly can lead to normal blood pressure.

 

I have seen many of my patients recovering well and they have stopped medications for high blood pressure.

 

Best wishes for a healthy and happy existence.

That is because few of the poses in yoga are contraindicated for BP you must avoid it and do the rest of the practices. Finding a good teacher will address your situation. More focus should be given for breathing practices only asanas does not help. Hope this helps. Thank you.
