Background: The cardiovascular morbidity is increasing in India in recent years. Medical treatment of hypertension is not always sufficient to achieve blood pressure control. Objective: The present study was aimed to observe the influence of selected yogasana and callisthenic practices on heart rate and blood pressure of healthy female college student volunteers. Methods: The cardiovascular status of the subjects was assessed clinically in terms of resting heart rate and blood pressure before the start of training and again after 8 weeks of training. Results: The results were compared and analysed. From the study it was observed that significant reduction in the heart rate, systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure occurs in the subjects (P < 0.05). Conclusion: These findings suggest that the yogasana and callisthenic practices provides significant improvement of blood pressure and increase the efficiency of the heart and quality of life of the selected female college student volunteers.
