The purpose of this study was to determine how yogic practices influenced psychological factors in college women students. The current study included forty 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=40) were randomly allocated into two groups of twenty students each. Similarly, the classes were divided into two groups: yogic practices and control. Stress and aggression were assessed by Everlyn & Girdano’s and Smith aggression questionnaire respectively. After the study group had completed twelve weeks of participation, the post-tests were administered. Analysis of covariance was used to examine the treatment influence of the training programs on all of the variables in the sample (ANCOVA). Stress and Anxiety of experimental group reduced significantly when compared to control group.
