AUTHOR(S): Dr. K Sekarbabu and Dr. Y Wise Blessed Singh
The purpose of the study was to analyze the changes on mean arterial pressure in response to yogic practices among middle aged men and women of different age groups. To achieve the purpose of this study sixty middle aged people were selected, in which 30 subjects were men and remaining 30 subjects were women. They were further categorized into four sub-groups of 15 subjects each. The first one is 40-44 age groups of men and women separately and another one 45-49 age groups of men and women separately. Random group design was used for the study, as it was most appropriate technique. The mean arterial pressure was selected as dependent variable for the study. During the training period, the experimental groups underwent yoga training six days a week for twelve weeks. Three-way analysis of variance was used to find out the influence of each factor independently and also their combined influence on each of the selected variables. The level of confidence was fixed at 0.05 for significance. The result of the study reveals that due to the effect of yoga training the mean arterial pressure of 40-44 and 45-49 age category men and women were significantly decreased. It also confers the existence of insignificant difference on mean arterial pressure among gender in relevance to different age categories during pre and post-tests.
