Group II acted as control who did not undergo any special training programme apart from their regular physical education programme. The following variables namely strength endurance and flexibility were selected as criterion variables. All the subjects of two groups were tested on selected dependent variables at prior to and immediately after the training programme. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyze the significant difference, if any among the groups. The .05 level of confidence was fixed as the level of significance to test the ‘F’ ratio obtained by the analysis of covariance, which was considered as an appropriate. The results of the study showed that there was a significant difference between yogic practices group and control group on selected physical fitness components such as speed and agility.
