Paschimottanasana (Seated Forward Bend)
Seated forward bends can be very calming. For this pose, have several pillows available to stack on your thighs and rest your forehead on if you like.
Baddha Konasana (Bound Angle Pose)
This pose is a delicious hip opener, but it also increases your body’s circulation. Take a seat on the ground with your legs straight.
Janu Sirsasana (Head-to-Knee Pose)
Talk about soothing. This pose not only stretches those super-tight muscles in your back and legs, but it also calms the mind and eases anxiety and fatigue.
Yoga practices that include breath work have been shown to provide the most benefit to your blood pressure.
Savasana (Corpse Pose)
Many people with high blood pressure are so used to a fast-paced, high-pressure life that they may have forgotten how to slow down and relax.
Viparita Karani (Legs-up-the-wall pose)
Viparita Karani is a mild pose to relax your body. This asana will improve blood circulation and make you look younger.
