Comparative Effects of Yogic Practice and Psycho Regulatory Technique on Selected Psycho Physiological Variables among Athletes

Abstract :

The purpose of the study was to find out the comparative effects of yogic practice and psycho regulatory technique on selected psychophysiological variables among athletes. To achieve the purpose of the present study, forty five athletes from SDAT Tiruchirappalli, Tamilnadu, India were selected as subjects and their ages ranged from 16 to 20 years. The groups were assigned as Experimental Group I, Experimental Group II and Control Group in an equivalent manner. Experimental Group I was exposed to yogic practices, Experimental Group II was exposed to psycho regulatory techniques and Control Group was not exposed to any experimental training other than their regular daily activities. The duration of experimental period was 12 weeks. Heart rate was assessed by stethoscope and blood pressure was assessed by sphygmomanometer. The pre test and post test scores were subjected to statistical analysis using Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) to find out the significance among the mean differences, whenever the ‘F’ ratio for adjusted test was found to be significant, Scheffe’s post hoc test was used. In all cases 0.05 level of significance was fixed to test hypotheses. The yogic practices and psycho regulatory training had shown significant improvement in all the selected psychophysiological variables among athletes after undergoing the training for a period of twelve weeks.
