The selected subjects were divided into two groups namely Group – I underwent yoga (n= 10) and Group – II acted as control (n= 10). The flexibility was selected as dependent variable and tested by using sit and reach test. The yoga group underwent parivarthatrikonasana, vakrasana, ustrasana, ardhachakrasana, komugasana, patchimothaasana, veerasana, yogamudra, yoganidhra, nadisuthi pranayama and silent meditation. The yoga practice was extended for eight weeks, three days per week, sixty minutes per day including warming up and relaxation. The control group did not do any special training program apart from their regular activities. The data were collected before and immediately after the yogic practice.
