The blood flow is an essential part of what keeps us going. It is also called the cardiovascular system and includes the heart and blood vessels. The task of the heart is to pump blood into various body parts and blood carries nutrients and oxygen to the organs. It travels through the blood vessels. The heart is divided into four compartments each having a different role. One compartment situated in the upper right collects the incoming impure blood from the body and moves it to the lower right compartment. This lower right compartment sends the blood to lungs for purification. The purified blood is then returned to the heart and then heart pumps pure blood to all parts of body.
The circulatory system is established of two main parts, blood and lymphatic system. The role of the lymphatic system is to eliminate wastes from the bloodstream. The blood system has a pump – the heart, whereas the lymphatic system has many organs to help its operations. This work falls on the muscles that pump the lymphatic system through contraction and expansion. That’s where Yoga helps.
Yoga is a discipline in its unique combination of concentration of mind, body and soul. The Yogic exercises are so designed with various poses and positions as well as postures so that they can cleanse the hurdles in blood flow and help in blockage free blood circulation. They also focus on strengthening the body parts. The persons who perform Yogic exercises are therefore more fit and fine than those who refrain from doing the exercises.
The benefits start before that. Yoga sessions, usually with a series of standing exercises emphasize on breathing exercises. These breathing exercises force the breath to properly transport throughout our body. The exercises related to breathing are easy and can be practiced anywhere one wants.
Longer breathing leads to increase in oxygen. In combination with the effects of exercises on the regularity of the circulation in blood system, the oxygen more efficiently transported to the muscles of the body. If these muscles, as well as our other organs and tissues do not receive oxygen and nutrients we need, we can die of hunger and disease as a result.
As you can see, Yoga is a great support for complex and coherent transport. It recognizes the fundamental importance of the system and helps keep balance.
