Abstract:

The menstrual cycle is the cycle of natural changes that occurs in the uterus and ovary as an essential part of making reproduction possible. Its timing is governed by endogenous (internal) biological cycles. The menstrual cycle is essential for the production of eggs, and for the preparation of the uterus for pregnancy. The cycle occurs only in fertile female humans and other female primates. In human females, the menstrual cycle occurs repeatedly between the age of menarche, when cycling begins, until menopause, when it ends. The study was undertaken with the aim to observe the effect of yogic practices with and without deep relaxation technique on diastolic blood pressure among school girls. For this study totally 45 female students were selected as subjects from kanchipuram. Their age ranged between 15 to 18  years. They were divided in to three groups. Experimental group I –yogic practices with deep relaxation technique , Experimental group II- yogic practices without deep relaxation technique and group III –control group (no intervention). The data was collected from three groups prior to training and after 12 weeks of yogic practices with and without  deep relaxation technique . Analysis of covariance was used to find out the significant difference between the three groups. The level of significance at 0.05%. The results proved that the regular yogic practices and deep relaxation technique helped to significantly reduce the physiological variable diastolic blood pressure.
