Blood pressure is pressure or force which is pumped from the heart to arterial walls so that blood can flow in blood vessels and reach tissues throughout the body. Blood pressure problems in the elderly include hypertension or hypotension. Hypertension and hypotension can be treated pharmacologically and non-pharmacologically. One of the non-pharmacological treatments is heart exercise. This research was to identify the effect of heart exercise on blood pressure in the elderly at Sanggrahan Hamlet, Wedomartani Village, Ngemplak Subdistrict, Sleman Regency, Yogyakarta. This research is a quasi-experiment with a pre-post test nonequivalent control group. Samples were taken using consecutive sampling with a sample size of 15 respondents/group. Data were analyzed using paired T-Test. In the control group, mean of systolic and diastolic pretest were 137,34 mmHg and 85,63 mmHg.Mean of systolic and diastolic pretest were 137,21 mmHg and 85,48 mmHg. In the experimental group, mean of systolic and diastolic pretest were 135,27 mmHg and 81,73 mmHg.Mean of systolic and diastolic pretest were 133,00 mmHg and 83,53 mmHg. In the control group, p-value pre-posttest systolic and diastolic were 0,592 and 0,543. In experimental group, p-value pre-posttest systolic and diastolic were  0,028 dan 0,344.
