Abstract :

The objective of the study was to determine the effects of Pranayama on Selected Physiological Variables of Male Physical Education Students of P.G.College, Upardaha, Baraut, Allahabad (U.P), India. The subjects for this study were randomly selected from the Department of Physical Education at P.G.College, Upardaha, Baraut, Allahabad (U.P), India. A total of 40 male physical education students were selected as subject for this study. All the subjects were randomly divided into 2 groups. Pranayama was considered as the Independent Variable and Vital Capacity, Resting Blood Pressure (Systolic and Diastolic) and Resting Heart Rate were considered as the Dependent Variable. The statistical technique employed for this study was mean, standard deviation and Ancova test. The level of significance was tested at 0.05 level. A significant (p<.05) effect of Pranayama was found in relation to Blood Pressure and Vital Capacity. In case of Pulse Rate no significant difference was found at (p<.05) level after six week training. The independent variables were assessed before and after the training period.
