Author(s): S Mohan and Dr. STN Rajeshwaran
The purpose of the study is to find out the effect of selective yogasanas and pranayama practices on selected physiological variables such as pulse rate, vital capacity, percent body fat and biochemical variables such as high density lipoprotein, low density lipoprotein and fasting blood sugar of the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University students. Sixty men students in the age group of 18 to 25 years from the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore were randomly selected and served as the subjects for the purpose of this study. The subjects (N=60) were randomly divided into three equal groups. Group I-was administered as yogasanas exercise group, Group II-underwent pranayama practice group and the Group III as control group. All the groups were subjected to pre-test prior to the experimental treatment. The experimental groups participated in their respective duration of 6 weeks, six days in a week throughout the study. Period of six weeks analysis of Co-variance (ANACOVA) is applied to determine the significance of mean difference between the three groups. When F-ratio was found to be significant, the Scheffe‟s Post Hoc test was applied to test the significance of pairs of adjusted final group means. Practice of the yogasanas and pranayama is significantly effective in promoting desirable changes on dependent variables.
