Short term effect of Sudarsan Kriya Yoga on physiological and psychological Homeostatic among older women


Author(s): Santu Dhara, Ratan Mandal

Abstract: Yoga techniques specially ‘Sudarsan Kriya’ have historically been found to enhance well-being, mood, attention, mental focus, and stress tolerance and these factors were direct related to maintain human’s homeostatic, physiological as well as psychological homeostatic. The purpose of the study is to find out the short time effect of ‘Sudarsan Kriya’ Yoga on physiological and psychological homeostatic among older women. Basically, the researcher selected Thirty (N=30) older women as the subjects for the study through a ‘15- day’s ‘Sudarsan Kriya’ Yoga course, namely ‘Art of Living’ organised by a Dharamsala located at Maynaguri, Jalpaiguri District, West Bengal, India. The age group of the subjects was ranged from 56-68 years. To measure the homeostatic condition the researcher selected Systolic Blood Pressure (SBP), Diastolic Blood Pressure (DBP) and Resting pulse rate (RPR) as physiological homeostatic variables and Mental Stress Level (MSL) as psychological homeostatic variables. To measure the Physiological Variables like SBP and DBP ‘Digital Blood Pressure Monitor’ (Omron’s Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor, HEM-7130-L) was used. For RPR, the pulse rate were taken in the early morning just after the wakeup but till they were on bed. Put the middle and index finger to either on wrist or carotid artery in subject’s neck. Couned how many beats occur in 30 seconds, and multiply that number by 2. This was the resting pulse of the subjects. On the other hand MSL was measured by ‘Stress indicator questionnaire’, developed by “The Counselling Team International”. All data were collected two times initially and after 15 – days ‘Sudarsan Kriya’ Yoga course completed. The collecting data were calculated by using descriptive statistic and “t” test and level of significance was set at 0.05 levels. There were significant difference exist on SBP, DBP and MSL among older women as because Cal “t” value (2.62, 3.41 and 3.53) are higher than Tab “t” 0.05(58) value (2.000), and there was no significant difference exist on RPR as because Cal “t” value (1.00) is lower than Tab “t” 0.05(58) value (2.000). The initially and after treat mental mean and standard deviation have been found for SBP - 157.7±14.53 and 148.13±13.20, DBP - 91.17±5.01 and 86.80±4.81, RPR - 85.93±6.21 and 84.30±6.18, MSL - 131.76±20.86 and 114.70±15.50.
