I never knew that yoga can reduce the risk of heart disease. I really enjoy yoga and meditation. This article inspires me to continue making time in my schedule do to each one, and how beneficial it will be for my health.

I really liked this article. I have been looking for something simple I can do at home or a work. Sometimes I forget to relax and I go home with pain in my neck or back.

I am a singer and a vocal instructor. The vocal exercises I do every day for myself and working with my students requires deep breathing and the vowels we use, from my point of view, puts you in a similar place as the "om"...I always come away feeling very strong, satisfied and fulfilled. Even if you have never thought of yourself as a singer, the lessons can be a definite health benefit. I've had many through the years who study just for fun, discipline and satisfaction.

Chris: karate isn't good for rehabilitation heart patients.

All this though I already do, lots of isometric. Swimming, walking, biking, yoga, bellydance and yes even hula hoop!

Yeah I agree - I also thought they would have mention karate as one of the tenets is Zen Breathing. I know that there was a Catholic meditation group in my diocese. I don't know what happened to it as I hadn't heard about it for a while.

One possible additional group of options which I would like to have seen mentioned (and what research has shown concerning their effects on heart health) would be ones such as religious practices - such as prayer (which might be considered in a similar group as TM), and religious attendance/worship activities. Maybe a follow-up that addresses what studies have shown on the relation of those (of varying religious backgrounds) types of activities/followings/practices.
