AUTHOR(S): Dr. Ashok J Zala
The aim of the study is to determine the effects of yogic exercise on health related physical fitness variables including muscular Strength, muscular endurance and flexibility. 50 healthy women’s within the age group of 17-21 years were selected randomly from the Anand city of Gujarat to participate in the study. Subjects were assigned into two groups: (A) Yoga Group (n = 25) and (B) Control Group (n = 25). In experimental group, Yogic exercise group was performed 60 min per day, 6 days per week for 8-week. The subjects were evaluated pre and post the 8-week training program. The paired sample t-test was used to assess the between-group differences for dependent data to assess the Post-Pre differences. Results indicated that the health related physical fitness variables including muscular Strength, muscular endurance and flexibility (p< 0.05) significantly improved in yogic exercise group compared with the control one. These findings indicate that regular yogic exercise can elicit improvements in the health-related aspects.
