Aim: To examine the scientific approach for the effect of Yogic practice on flexibility among girls of central Telangana. Method: A sample of one hundred (N= 100) subjects in the age categories of 18 to 22 years, were divided equally into two groups. One experimental group and the other control group. The dependent variable tested for this study was delimited to flexibility. The criterion variables chosen were tested with reliable testing tools. Flexibility was measured with sit and reach tests and scores were recorded in centimeters based on the responses. The control group was not given any specific training whereas the experimental group underwent Yogic practice 6 days a week for 12 weeks and 60 min per session. The pre and post test data collected were statistically analyzed by applying paired t-test initially to compare the means and t-ratio for significant difference separately for each dependent variable. Results: The results of the study indicate that flexibility significantly improved in the experimental group as a result of participating in the Yogic practice. Conclusion; It is concluded that Yogic practice improves flexibility. Key words: Yogic, flexibility,sit and reach etc.
