Sirsasana with a twist (Yoga Journal calendar)
If you've got high blood pressure, you might benefit from yoga. Two studies of people with hypertension, published in the British medical journal, The Lancet, compared the effects of Savasana (Corpse Pose) with simply lying on a couch. After three months, Savasana was associated with a 26-point drop in systolic blood pressure (the top number) and a 15-point drop in diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number) - and the higher the initial blood pressure, the bigger the drop.

I cannot recommend Claire Dederer's Poser: My Life in Twenty-three Yoga Poses highly enough. I know you will love it!
