The concept of DQYogaDQ is currently gaining a lot of popularity worldwide owing to its various health benefits and other advantages such as safety and ease of practice. There is considerable evidence accumulating related to its benefits on health, especially cardiovascular health. There is, however, a lot of confusion related to the term DQYogaDQ in the various studies as it comprises several different practices. More good quality studies are needed utilizing different components of DQYogaDQ investigating their effects on cardiovascular disease. There is also a change in the understanding of the role of the heart in the human body.
