The executive is prone to headaches because of the stress, the nerves of the face and head become taut and exhaustion is non – stressful.

The asanas remove the stress from the nerve system. Pranayama controls breathing system and Dhayana is for mind control. Yoga strengthens immunity, as the nerves are made strong by all asanas.

Constant travel and late nights are some of the factors that alter the biorhythm of cortisol; lack of sleep improper diet and high polyunsaturated fat content affects the genesis; it is preferable to stick to a vegetarian diet as it is low in fat. Studies have shown that, in vegetarians, the killer cell activity of the immune system is twice that of omnivorous controls. Emotions also affect the immune system. Emotionally weak people prone to anger suffer more and unless the daily schedule includes exercise, this vital part of the body begins to suffer. All asanas are helpful. Some asanas result in an enhanced quality of oxygen uptake of the body.

Yoga insists that prevention is better than cure. Patanjali has emphasized that one has to prepare one’s body to take on ‘hidden diseases’. i.e., to keep oneself in the peak of health so that disorders can be nipped in the bud. This is particularly useful in ischemic heart disease (IHD)

Effect of pranayama: Pranayama is very valuable for the immune system. As a deep inhalation is done, enhanced venous return occurs along with better lymphatic drainage. The rhythmic up and down movement of the diaphragm massages the abdominal organs, increasing their circulation and efficiency. Blood flow changes in the kidneys, permitting better filtering action of water and solutes. The colour of the urine changes with regular pranyamic practice.

VIPASANA: Means “to be conscious of Vipasna in one of the processes which would lead one to meditation. Prince Siddartha attained enlightenment and went on to become Lord Buddha through the practice of VIPASANA. It is a static process, continuous practice of this process help one to experience a very holistic life.
