Parameters of heart rate variability HRV were determined hourly by a blinded observer. The increase in HRV parameters was significantly higher during yoga exercise than during placebo and control especially for the parameters associated with vagal tone, i. In conclusion, relaxation by yoga training is associated with a significant increase of cardiac vagal modulation.
Since this method is easy to apply with no side effects, it could be a suitable intervention in cardiac rehabilitation programs. Keywords: yoga, Iyengar Yoga, heart-rate-variability, cardiac rehabilitation Introduction Heart rate variability HRV has been established as a non-invasive tool to study cardiac autonomic activity.
Reduced HRV has been established as a predictor for increased risk of cardiac mortality and sudden cardiac death 1—6 especially in patients after myocardial infarction. Several relaxation techniques have been established in the management of patients during cardiac rehabilitation aiming to reduce future cardiac events via cardiac autonomic nervous activity.
It has been hypothesized that relaxation training programs may improve the cardiac autonomic nervous tone. However, this has not been proven for all available relaxation techniques, such as yoga. Since more than 60 years, B.
Iyengar has been working therapeutically with patients after myocardial infarction. His method offers more than other techniques for relaxation: the sequence of yoga asanas postures and the individuality they are performed with, are adjusted to the severity of myocardial infarction, the stage of recovery and the clinical condition of the patient. Props are used, so that the strain of exercise can be regulated or stopped if desired.
We investigated whether this method has a positive influence on the cardiac vagal modulation compared to a similar setting of conventional relaxation and exercise techniques among healthy yoga practitioners.
They were experienced practitioners with at least 3 years of regular practice of Iyengar Yoga; four of them were certified teachers of Iyengar Yoga. Each individual was subjected to five training units each of 90 min at the same time of the day around During two sessions, they practiced Iyengar Yoga; on three sessions they practiced a placebo program of relaxation that consisted of resting on the floor and park walking.
To avoid misinterpretations of our findings due to interindividual and circadian variability 7 , the yoga practitioners themselves served as an intraindividual control group. All volunteers gave informed consent for scientific use of their Holter information. Intervention Before the actual examination started, the yoga practitioners had 3—5 sessions where they practiced the sequence of yoga asanas chosen for the intervention to make them familiar with the program. Since the yoga practitioners were experienced, the program, which was taken from the work of B.
