The aim of the study was designed to determine the Impact of twelve week Asana and Meditation training on Attitude of the High School Students. To attain the purpose, Forty Five (N=45) high school students studying various high schools in and around Belagavi, Karnataka State, India during the academic year 2018-2019 were selected randomly as subjects. Their age ranged from 14 to 16 years. The subjects were assigned at random into three groups of fifteen each (n=15). Group-I underwent Yogasana Practice (n=15), Group-II underwent Meditation Practice (n=15) and Group-III acted as Control. The dependent variable selected for this study was Psychological well being and it was assessed by BMI Scale (Beliefs towards Mental Illness scale).
All the subjects were tested prior to and immediately after the training for the selected variable. Data were collected and statistically analyzed using ANCOVA. Scheffe’s post hoc test was applied to determine the significant difference between the paired means. In all the cases 0.05 level of significance was fixed. The results of the study showed that there was a significant difference among all the Experimental group’s namely Yogasana Practices and Meditation Practices.
