Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to determine how yogic practices influenced physiological factors in college women students. The current study included thirty women students from Pondicherry University Community College in Lawpet, Puducherry, who ranged in age from 18 to 21 years old. The participants were divided into two equal sized groups. With a pre- and post-test, the experiment was set up as a true random group design. The participants (n=30) were randomly allocated into two groups of fifteen students each. Similarly, the classes were divided into two groups: yogic practices and control. Systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure were assessed by bio-monitor respectively. After the study group had completed six weeks of participation, the post-tests were administered. The data was analyzed by applying dependent ‘t’ test. The level of significance was set at 0.05. Systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure of experimental group reduced significantly when compared to control group.
