The purpose of study was to find out the “Effect of yogic exercises on physical fitness of the senior citizens of Anantnag City”. For this study the subjects were selected from the Anantnag city of J&K.. Thirty (30) male senior citizens of the Anantnag city were selected. The simple random sampling method was adopted to select the subjects. The following criteria measures were chosen for testing the hypothesis. Agility was measured with the help of shuttle run. Time of shuttle run was recorded to the nearest one tenth of the second and was the final score in agility. Flexibility was measured with the help of Sit and Reach method. The best trail was used as the final score of the test. Before collection of data the subject was given a chance to practice the prescribed tests so that they should become familiar with the test and know exactly what is to be done to ensure uniform testing conditions. To test the hypothesis, the level of significance was set at 0.05 level of significance which was considered adequate and reliable for the purpose of this study. The data was collected before and after six week training programs on the agility and flexibility and was analyzed by comparing the means of controlled and experimental groups and was again statistically analyzed by applying T-test to check the significant difference among the selected items.
