Author(s): Dr. M Augustine Gnanaraj
The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of selected yogi practices on diabetic patients in lowering the blood sugar. To facilitate the study, twenty-four subjects were selected in the age group of 40 to 55 years. They were divided into two equal groups with twelve subjects each in control group and experimental group. Two groups were equated on the random blood sugar level value at rest. The control group was not given any treatment. Experimental group was given selected yogasana for eight weeks. After the completion of eight weeks training period again the random blood sugar level was taken at rest. To test for the significant mean difference between the groups, the‘t’ ratio was used and tested for 0.05 level of significance. The result of the study indicated that eight weeks of selected yogic practices decrease the level of random blood sugar of diabetes patients.
