The purpose of the study is to find out effect of yogasana and step aerobic exercises on selected physiological parameters. To achieve these purpose 45 school Girls’ students were selected from Chennai selected as subjects. Their age group ranged from 14 to16 years. They were divided in to three equal groups of 15 subjects each and assigned to Experimental group-1, Experimental group-2 and control group. The group-1 underwent yogasana practices and the group-2 underwent step aerobics training. The experimental groups underwent their respective training programme three days per week (alternate days) for twelve weeks. The criterion variables selected are resting pulse rate, vital capacity and breath holding time. ANCOVA was used to find out the significant differences. Statistical analysis found significant differences between yogasana practices and step aerobics training in improving the physiological parameters. Step aerobics training differed significantly (p<0.05) from both yogasana practices and control groups for resting pulse rate. Both experimental groups improves breath holding time when compare to control group.
