Yoga experts emphasise the importance of incorporating breathing exercises into one's routine for maintaining heart health. Yoga is viewed as a natural and safe approach to addressing a range of health concerns, including prevention, treatment, and recovery, especially in the context of heart health. Yoga combines various techniques such as pranayama (breath control), mudras (hand gestures), and asanas (physical postures) to deliver substantial benefits. Furthermore, the adoption of a positive lifestyle is deemed crucial in supporting overall health. Himalayan Siddhaa Akshar, the Founder of Akshar Yoga Kendraa, highlighted in an interview with HT Lifestyle that neglecting the well-being of the heart and brain can lead to severe conditions like stroke, paralysis, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, acute stress, and anxiety.
