Effect of yoga on pulse rate and blood pressure

Nehal S Patel, Nitesh K Patel, Monghi Chaudhari, N R Pathak.


Background: Today, women are constantly under stress to maintain stability between home and work place. This stress influences their physical fitness and mental health. The immune system is lowered by stress and the adrenal glands are overworked. Yoga is one of the most useful, significant, and precious tools for overcoming various physical and mental issues.

Aims and Objectives: The aim of the study was to determine how yoga training affected women’s blood pressure and pulse rate.

Material and Methods: A total of 50 women, ages 25–50, had their pulse rates and blood pressure monitored before and after yoga exercise. The same individuals were selected for the study and the control group. The findings of the statistical study, which used the paired t-test, are presented as mean ± standard deviation.

Results: Out of 50 women, 18 were working, and 32 were not working but were doing housework. Pulse rate before yoga (74.04 ± 3.307) and after yoga training (67.78 ± 2.950) was found, respectively. Systolic blood pressure before yoga (123.20 ± 5.86) and after yoga training (114.00 ± 6.38) was found, respectively. Diastolic blood pressure before yoga (80.40 ± 4.499) and after yoga training (77.20 ± 4.96) was found, respectively. Systolic and diastolic blood pressure, as well as the pulse rate, all significantly decreased (P < 0.0001).

Conclusion: Daily yoga practice enhances a variety of physiological factors, such as pulse rate and blood pressure, which are greatly improved even when no other physical activity is being done.
