Abstract:
To observe the Impact of regular yogic practices and Bharatanatyam adavus in reducing body fat and elevated lipids in overweight women. Yoga is ultimate for developing harmony among body, mind and spirit. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of selected yogic practice and Bharatanatyam adavu training on improving selected physiological variables of women at Calicut District.
Method: Sixty Overweight women were divided into three equal groups on random basis (groups I, II, and III) consisting of 20 study participants in each group. Two out of the three groups were given experimental treatments: yogic practice (group- I), Bharatanatyam adavu (group- II) while the remaining one group (group- III) was designated as control group. The study was formulated as completely randomized comparative trial, consisting of a pre-test and post-test. The collected data from the three group’s pretest and post-test were statistically analyzed using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). The Least significant difference (LSD) post hoc test was applied to determine significant differences among paired mean values. The 95% level of confidence was used and p-value <0.05 was considered as statistically significant.
Results: The findings of the study on Biochemical variables revealed that yogic practice (YP) group and Bharatanatyam adavu (BA) group showed significant superiority over the control group in reducing LDL (p<0.05). The mean change made by the two experimental groups (p>0.05) didn’t show statistically significant difference. The finding also revealed that YP group and BA group significantly improved HDL than control group (p>0.05). The mean change made by the two experimental groups (p<0.05) didn’t show statistically significant difference.
Conclusion: The experimental groups; selected Bharatanatyam adavu (BA) and yogic practice groups (YPG) had significantly improved the selected Biochemical variables in contrast to control group. BA training was found to be significantly better on improving resting heart rate than yogic practice group and control group.
