Arrhythmias (Heart Rhythm Disturbances) and Yoga
Effect of Yoga on Arrhythmias (Heart Rhythm Disturbances)
Exercise and weight loss can help treat arrhythmias. Not only good for exercise, the meditative breathing component of yoga can help to calm individuals with arrhythmias as well.
Side Effects and Warnings
Hatha yoga is generally at least as safe as any other stretching-based exercise program. However there are a few hatha yoga positions, such as the headstand, that can cause injury when they are performed by a person who isn’t yet sufficiently advanced in yoga, or who has certain health problems, such as a detached retina. A properly qualified instructor can help you avoid injury, taking your own individual health status into account.
