Author(s): Sharma Rekha and Shaw Dhananjoy
Abstract:
The purposes of the study were (i) to study the effect of Kapalbhati Practice on Resting Heart Rate and Blood Pressure (ii) to study the effect of Anulom Vilom Practice on Resting Heart Rate and Blood Pressure (iii) to study the effect of Agnisar Practice on Resting Heart Rate and Blood Pressure (iv) to study the effect of Bhramari Practice on Resting Heart Rate and Blood Pressure The age of the subjects ranged from 35 to 45 yrs sedentary females. There were four experimental groups and four control group. The number of samples at pre test in experimental groups were (anulom vilom n1= 35, kapalbhati n2=35, bhramari n3=35, agnisar n4=35) consisting of 140 samples. The number of samples at pre test in control groups were (anulom vilom n1= 26, kapalbhati n2=26, bhramari n3=26, agnisar n4=26) consisting of 104 samples. The number of samples at post test in experimental groups were (anulom vilom n1= 30, kapalbhati n2=30, bhramari n3=32, agnisar n4=30) consisting of 122 samples. The number of samples at post test in control groups were (anulom vilom n1 = 23, kapalbhati n2=23, bhramari n3=26, agnisar n4=25) consisting of 97 samples.The experimental groups were treated with selected yogic practices namely Kapalbhati, Anuloma Viloma, Agnisar, Bhramari, (tailored programme) independently to independent group for 20 minutes, five days a week, for six weeks whereas the control group were not given any treatment. Resting Heart Rate and Blood Pressurewere done at pretest and after six weeks of treatment the post test was taken. Simultaneously the control group was tested. It was hypothesized that there will be positive effect of anulom vilom, kapalbhati, bhramari and agnisar on the autonomic functions of sedentary females age ranging from 35 years to 45 years. Mean, Standard Deviation, and t test were used as statistics and hypothesis was tested at.05 level of significance. The findings exhibited significant differences between pretest and post test scores of experimental groups in regard to the variables namely Resting Heart Rate, systolic Blood Pressure and Diastolic Blood Pressure
