Many people in these days associate yoga solely with asanas, or relaxing means of exercise, however, asana is only one of many techniques used to heal an individual; only three of the 196 sutras mention asana, and the rest of the text mentions other aspects of yoga such as mindful breathing, meditation, lifestyle and diet changes, visualization, and the use of sound, among others. In the present study we looked into the impact of two different asanas Sarvangasana and Uttanpadasana on hemodynamic parameters in non-obese individuals. It's a comparison analysis of two different types of asanas to see how yoga affects vital signs including blood pressure (systolic and diastolic) and pulse rate. The subject rested in a supine position on the tilt table for 10 to 15 minutes on the days of the experiment (before and after SVGN) until the blood pressure and pulse rate were steady. Before performing each asana (Rest), the participants were measured for vital signs such as systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), and pulse rate (PR), as well as at 1Min, 2Min, in asana and 5min after completing the asana (Rest). In the supine position, at the right upper limb, the pulse rate (PR) and blood pressure (BP) were measured using an LED blood pressure monitor (Omron HEM-7130). Three measurements were taken at 1 Min, 2 Min during asana and 5min after asana, the sum of the three values was determined. In the present study, out of 33 participants performing SVGN, 19(57.7%) were female and 14(42.4%) were male with the mean age group of 37.3 years. Among 17 participants performing UNPN, 7(41.1%) were female and 10 (58.8%) were male with the mean age group 29.9 years. By applying Pearson correlation analysis to these hemodynamic parameters SBP, DBP and PR before and after performing SVGN asana in 33 individuals, the results showed all these three parameters were significantly affected (p<0.05) by sarvangasana. Similarly, through Pearson correlation analysis to the blood parameters SBP, DBP and PR before and after performing UNPN in 17 individuals, the results showed all these three parameters were significantly affected (p<0.05) by uttanpadasana. Yoga's convergence with modern medicine in resource-strapped public health systems may be critical in providing us with comprehensive health care. Economic considerations should be included in future studies, as yoga plays an important role in Primordial prevention. It is necessary to examine the cost-effectiveness of treating lifestyle-related diseases with and without yoga versus medication alone.
