Healing Hearts with Yoga

Recovery from a heart attack is a delicate and challenging process. However, integrating yoga into your rehabilitation routine can offer immense benefits, both physically and mentally. The Holistic Coach House offers a specialized yoga class aimed at aiding those recovering from heart attacks. This class features a gentle combination of Hatha yoga, Yoga Nidra, and Restorative yoga, along with essential breathing techniques from the Pranayama of Hatha yoga.

How yoga can help heart attack rehab patients

Physical rehabilitation

Hatha Yoga forms the foundation of our class, providing gentle stretches and poses that can help improve cardiovascular health, increase flexibility, and strengthen the muscles without placing undue stress on the heart. The slow and deliberate movements are perfect for those looking to gradually regain their strength and mobility.

Mental and emotional well-being

Yoga Nidra, often described as yogic sleep, is a powerful technique that guides participants into a state of deep relaxation. This practice helps to reduce the stress and anxiety that often follow a heart attack, promoting a sense of peace and emotional balance.

Mindfulness and Restorative Yoga work synergistically to calm the mind and body. These practices involve gentle poses held for longer periods, making use of props for support. This approach allows the body to fully relax and heal while fostering a mindful connection between breath and movement.

Breathing techniques (Pranayama)

Breathing exercises are a crucial component of our class. By practicing Pranayama, you can learn to control your breath, which helps in reducing stress, lowering blood pressure, and improving overall cardiovascular function.
