The purpose of the study was to find out Effects of yogic practices on physical variable among school level handball players. To achieve the purpose of this study 30 school boys inter school players of Govt. Boys Hr. Sec. School, Udumalpet, were selected as subject. The selected subjects were divided into two groups namely yogic practice group and control group, Group A underwent yogic practice for eight weeks of six days per weeks.
