Q: Is hot yoga safe to do with high blood pressure?
A: People with high blood pressure can safely participate in hot yoga if they pay attention to their body. With any form of exercise you need to know your limits. This is especially true with exercise done in a hot room. The heat of the room adds an extra burden to your heart. Blood pressure can go up higher than it would with just exercise. To be safe, you need to pay careful attention to your body. Stop if start feeling light headed, short of breath, or nauseous.
