Background: -In the epoch of current civilization, the wallop of industrialization technology can be envisioned on every
facet of human life. So consequently, he is unable to fixed surplus time even a smaller period of time to look after his
health. Due to this situation he is more recumbent to all sorts of ailments due to lack of proper exercise, diet and rest. Longer duration and
unscheduled working hours, unbalanced diet and less rest periods have turned him into a physically weaker, mentally unbalanced, emotionally
debouched and socially antagonistic individual. Yoga practices hold great promise and potential in the field of medical science
Aim :-Yoga as therapy is still at the stage of clinical research this study is undertaken to find out the changes in various hematological parameters
after yoga practice which may lead to a positive effect on human life.
Materials and methods:- Male students having similar dietary and lifestyle pattern were grouped into two groups experimental and control
group having 35 students in each group.
The experimental group were given yoga training for six months while the control group was devoid of any such intervention. Pre and post
haematological parameters were examined and were statistically compared between the groups for analysing significant changes in
hematological changes.
Result:- At the end of the operational research statistically significant changes were noticed in the hematological parameters between the two
Discussion and conclusion: At the end it can be concluded that regular yoga practice is helpful for the positive change in total erythrocytes,
count total leucocytes counts ,haemoglobin and neutrophil counts in human blood. Increased leucocytes and neutrophil counts chiefly contribute
in improving immunity system while increased TRBC and haemoglobin may contribute to proper oxygenation to tissue.
