5 Minute Pranayama

2 Jun



Today my physiology colleagues and I presented our poster at WWU, where we studied the impacts of Pranayama (breathing) and Viparita Karani (inverted pose or legs up the wall pose) on blood pressure in college-age women.

Our results showed that a 5-minute breathing practice significantly lowered blood pressure from a baseline measurement. The above recording was what we used for participants in all trials. The cool thing is it only takes 5 minutes to create a measurable change!

Breathe deep,

Jessie
