Abstract :

The purpose of the present study was to find out the influence of yogic practices on selected bio-chemical variables among obese children. To achieve the purpose of the present study, thirty obese children from Tiruchirappalli, Tamilnadu, India were selected as subjects at random and their ages ranged from 9 to 12 years. The selected subjects are divided in to two groups. Group I acted as yogic practices group and Group II acted as control group. The experimental group participated yogic practices programme for twelve weeks duration. The control group was not undergone any training other than their daily routine. The criterion measures fasting plasma glucose and HDL was assessed by blood test. The two groups were statistically analysed by using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) at 0.05 level. The result of the study reveals that there was a significant improvement in the experimental group on selected variables when compared to the control group after the completion of twelve weeks of yogic practices.
