High blood pressure is widespread, with millions of people taking medication to treat it. Various factors are to blame: stress, anxiety, lack of sleep, an overly salty diet, a sedentary lifestyle. But there is an alternative to medication to treat hypertension: yoga. Various studies have demonstrated that yoga can help lower blood pressure.
