The best yoga exercises for the cardiovascular system

Yoga is an ancient tradition used not only to increase general fitness and mental balance. Many exercises are also designed to have an active influence on our health. But first it should be said that you should let a trainer show you the correct execution of the exercises because only then you will know what to pay attention to. We offer different types of yoga in our clubs. Of course, the courses are all included in your membership, so you can try them out and decide which one suits you best.

Stimulating the circulation

Is your circulation often sluggish and you don't know how to get it going again? Then these exercises might help you. Sarva Hitta Asanas are yoga exercises for beginners that you can do without any special knowledge. In addition, we have selected a few other exercises that are relatively easy to learn. Your trainer will be happy to demonstrate them to you.

Sarva Hitta Asanas (Rowing)

This exercise is done in a long sitting position. You row either forward or backward by placing your upper body forward on your legs and then straightening up again, stretching your arms upward and leaning backward. With the rowing motion, you stimulate your circulation, metabolism, and digestive system.

Sarva Hitta Asanas (Crow Walk)

Squat down and place your hands on your knees. In this position, you move around the room. This will get your circulation going and stimulate the blood flow in your feet.

Utthita Lolasana

This exercise activates the whole body. You stand in a straddle and then swing your upper body up and down. In the horizontal position, you first stop before swinging your upper body between your legs and straighten up completely.

Promoting venous return

Venous return is when deoxygenated blood is cleansed and returned to the heart. At the legs, return flow is impeded by gravity. Problems with return flow can lead to serious conditions, such as thrombosis.

Sarva Hitta Asanas (Cycling)

While lying on your back, perform a cycling movement. This exercise promotes blood circulation in the lower body and prevents varicose veins and thrombosis. The leg muscles are strengthened.

Sarvangasana (shoulder stand)

This exercise is very good for swollen legs. It promotes venous return and detoxification of the body. Lie on your back and then bring your legs up as straight as possible by supporting your back with your hands.

Sarva Hitta Asanas (Foot Exercise)

In a long sitting position, bend and stretch your ankles. This exercise promotes blood circulation and is effective against swelling and varicose veins.

Exercises against low blood pressure

When your blood pressure is too low, you often feel tired and tend to feel dizzy. In this case, you can also help with some yoga exercises.

Meru Prishthasana (upper body twist)

Stand slightly straddled and place your fingertips on your shoulders. Then turn your body to the right and left. Then bend your upper body horizontally to the left front and rotate it to the center. Then straighten up again and do the exercise to the other side. This will stimulate your whole body and increase blood pressure. You can also improve your balance.

Skandharasana (Shoulder Pose)

This exercise is performed in the supine position. Grasp your ankles with your arms and then lift your pelvis upward. This will increase your blood pressure. It also has a positive effect on the female organs.

Sarva Hitta Asanas (Lifting Upper Body and Legs)

For this Asana, lie on your stomach and raise your arms and legs. This way you increase blood pressure and become really awake.
