Author(s): Dr. Bijukumar K
The purpose of the study was to examine the physiological and psychological factors associated with stress of Engineering College students and the inter-related changes on the psycho physiological factors associated with stress as a result of using yoga and aerobic exercise programmes as methods to handle stress. 12 engineering students participated in 12 weeks yoga programme; and 13 students participated in a 12 weeks aerobic exercise program and 24 students were in control group. The control group did nothing during 12 weeks. Each subject answered the State – Trait Anxiety Inventory before and after the 12 weeks programme. The STAI measured physiological factors. Psychological measurements of heart rate and skin temperature were taken before and after the 12 weeks programme. An analysis of covariance was used to determine difference between and among the treatment group. A Dunn’s post hoc analysis was used to determine which contrast was significant. All statistical analyses were performed at the .05 level of significance. The Trait anxiety was significant between the control group and the aerobic exercise group (Significant of F = 0.040). Heart rate was significant between the control group and the yoga group (Significant of F = 0.038). All others’ contrast were not significant.
