Background: Yoga is a physical and meditative practice that has long been used to improve health and emotional well-being. Throughout the years, different styles of yoga have emerged, each offering its own unique approach to connecting the mind and body to influence positive health outcomes.

Aim: The aim of this study was to measure the blood pressure (BP) of participants before and after 60-minute classes of three different types of yoga: Hatha, Power, and Eischens, to determine if one style of yoga reduces BP more than another.
