Pranayama reduces the need of oxygen, so also the production of carbon dioxide. So the respiration rate reduces. In various Pranayama techniques Ujjayi Pranayama balances the Pranic flow of energy in the body. Ujjayi also affects carotid sinus, which help reduce BP. Nadishodhan Pranayama controls the Pranic flow. But people suffering from BP should not practice Kumbhaka (retention of breath) but only inhalation and exhalation.

Yoga breathing builds on abdominal breathing, but allows you to take in a fuller breath. Start by lying on your back again and breathing into your abdomen while keeping your chest still (don't use a book this time). Once you've taken as much air into your abdomen as you can, expand your chest to fill your lungs more completely. When your lungs are full, hold your breath for a few moments and then breathe out slowly. First, let your chest fall and then let your abdomen lower. Practice breathing slowly and deeply using this technique for a least a few minutes every day. With practice, you can slow down your breathing to a few breaths per minute and increase your lung capacity.

During any exercise the strain on muscles increases, the requirement for blood and oxygen increases but in Yogasanas the requirement goes down as there are no strains and every muscle is relaxed, the requirement for blood and oxygen goes down. This also reduces the strain on mind, the mind also becomes stable and focused.
