A gentler approach to heart-healthy fitness

This Week's Tip

A gentler approach to heart-healthy fitness
Yoga is probably best known for its flexibility benefits, along with its ability to help you sleep better and promote mindfulness. But yoga has also been shown to be a powerful contributor to heart health. In fact, according to research published in the International Journal of Medical Engineering and Informatics, those who practice yoga have higher heart rate variability and stronger parasympathetic control, both of which are signs of a healthier heart.

Another recent study by Ohio State University researchers, published in the journal Psychosomatic Medicine, found that women who routinely practiced yoga had lower levels of the cytokine interleukin-6 (which is correlated with heart disease) in their blood. Scientists believe that this indicates that yoga may also help people respond more calmly to stress in their everyday lives, which is a boon to heart health.

Reap the heart-healthy benefits of yoga with just 20 minutes of practice three times a week. Here's how to get started.
