I don't know about it helping BP but I do know it helps flexibility. I am getting so stiff that I am thinking of taking some classes at the Y. I used to do yoga many years ago but somehow I got away from it.
One day at a time; one pound at a time.

I used to do yoga clesses at the gym for about 2 months, then hurt my back on the weight lifting session and have now been restricted to walking on my treadmill and aqua aerobic classes. Also just hanging on two noodles in the pool for 15 minutes a day helps to decompress bones and relieve pain! To answer your question, I know yoga reduces stress and that reduces high BP.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
