Author(s): Dr. Aloke Sen Borman
Background: Evidence suggested that multiple intervention of yogic technique may improve physical fitness. But there was no such study on the effect of yogic asana alone and its impact on hand eye coordination which is most important component of performance related physical fitness. Aim: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of regular practice of yogic asana on hand eye coordination. Materials and Methods: Total 48 residential male students (12+1 years) were participated in this study. It was randomized into two equal groups as yoga group (n=24) and waitlist control group (n=24). Yoga group was regularly practiced only yogic asana for 1 to 1.5 hour per day, 6 days per week, for 12 weeks with a progressive load method. The hand eye coordination was assessed by measuring ball transferring ability. In the present study all the measurements were done at the baseline (before onset of training) after 6 and 12 weeks of asana training. A repeated measure of ANOVA was used for analyzing the data. Simple percentage also calculated from the mean value to see the quantitative changes of the asana training. Results: After 12 weeks, yoga group showed a significant improvement in coordination (77.59%). Conclusion: Yogic asana alone may elicit a positive improvement in hand eye coordination.
