What is Local Yoga Instructors

Patients of all ages with a variety of health conditions can benefit from working with a local yoga instructor. If you’ve had a heart attack or stroke, are recovering from heart surgery or simply want to improve your heart health or lower high blood pressure, a local yoga instructor can help. Yoga is a type of exercise that benefits the mind and body. It involves performing body poses and breathing exercises. There are many different types of yoga, including hatha, ashtanga, yin and kundalini.

There is even a type of cardio yoga that is more high intensity. Local yoga instructors can help patients with cardiovascular disease improve balance, strength and flexibility. Research shows that yoga may help lower cholesterol, blood pressure and blood glucose levels. Managing a heart condition or recovering from cardiovascular surgery (even just a stent implementation) can be stressful, and a local yoga instructor can help you lower cortisol levels, reduce anxiety and promote relaxation.

Your local yoga instructor can assist you in creating a safe yoga program for optimal heart health and heart disease prevention. They can also work with your other healthcare providers such as your local nutritionist, registered dietitian, massage therapist or local athletic therapist.
