  • Excellent article - informative and motivating.
  • I enjoyed reading this article and starting slowly with one short session a week of yoga. I've wanted to learn about yoga and try yoga for a long time now. It feels good to begin.
  • Actually there is NOTHING wrong with karatedo for heart patients,. I have had several recovering heart patients AS STUDENTS . There have been several studies touting the benefits to training for the heart. You are going to tell me Tai Chi s OK AND KARATE ISN'T? I bet you have never darkened the inside of a dojo in your life.

    Great article! Yoga is such a health and powerful way for folks to be fit and no matter what your physical situation you can begin. (Chair yoga, beginners yoga). Thanks for the info about TM - I've been practicing regularly for over 10 years and it has changed my life is so many ways. On top of that list is managing stress better and feeling great!
  • Good article! Thanks

    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.
