Abstract

experimental groups (Yogic exercise & Regular physical activity group) and control Group. The Yogic Exercise group subjects underwent a
specially designed Yoga program comprising of various Asanas (isometric type exercises) and Pranayamas (breathing exercises), The Regular
Exercise Group were given activities like running and freehand exercises whereas the control group were kept out of participation in any physical
activity or Yoga. The results of 3 x 6 Factorial ANOVA followed by Scheffe’s post hoc test revealed that Yogic exercise training and regular
exercise programme for the period of 12 weeks signicantly enhances Health related tness components such as Flexibility, Muscular Strength and
reduces Abdominal fat, Triceps fat & sub scapular fat. No experimental group showed signicant improvement on cardiovascular endurance. Yoga
group proved better in enhancing exibility and reducing Abdominal fat, triceps fat and sub scapular fat where as physical exercise group was
