Effect of mudra and Bandh on selected physiological variables
AUTHOR(S): Sandeep Singh Rawat
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of Vipareet Karni Mudra, Uddiyan Bandh and Combination of both on selected physiological variables. Forty female students of L.N.I.P.E., Gwalior were randomly selected in four Groups. The age of the subjects was between 18-25years. The physiological variables selected for this study were blood pressure (systolic and diastolic blood pressure), vital capacity, pulse rate, respiratory rate and breath holding capacity. The criterion measures adopted in this study were for physiological variables resting pulse rate and blood pressure (systolic and diastolic) was measured by use of automatic Sphygmomanometer. Respiratory rate was felt by placing fingers below the nostrils. The test-retest method was used to establish reliability. The subjects were randomly divided into four Groups i.e. Vipareet Karni Group, Uddiyan Bandh Group, Combination Group and Control Group. The training was given for 6 weeks to the three Groups. Pre data was collected on the selected physiological variables. After the completion of the training, the post data was collected on the similar conditions. The statistical technique (ANCOVA) was used to analyze the significant differences and the level of significance was set at 0.05 level for testing the hypothesis. The result revealed that significance difference was found in Vital Capacity, Breath Holding Capacity (positive and negative) whereas there was no significant difference among the three groups in Blood Pressure, Respiratory rate and Pulse rate.
