Author(s): Dr. K Jagathis Babu

Abstract: The purpose of this investigation was to study the effect of yogic practices on hematological variables and lipid profile of obese college men. Thirty obese college men students were selected randomly from J. J. College of Arts and Science (Auto), Pudukkottai, Tamil Nadu, India. The age ranged between 18 to 25 years, the subjects were selected based on BMI. Pretest and posttest designed was used. Experimental Group - I (N= 15) allowed to undergo yogic practices for six weeks, while control group (N=15) maintained their daily routine activities. The selected hematological variables were White Blood Cells and Red Blood Cells and Lipid Profile for High Density Lipoprotein and Low Density Lipoprotein were examined by laboratory test. For the analysis of data paired‘t’ test was applied. There was insignificant reduction of White Blood Cell in experimental group but the number of Red Blood Cells has significantly improved in Experimental group after six weeks yogic practices High Density Lipoprotein significantly improved in experimental group. The Low Density Lipoprotein has shown significant decrease in experimental group after six weeks of training. From the results, it can be predicted that, yoga practices is a effective method which can be helpful to decrease Obese level. The results demonstrate that yogic practices enhance the Red Blood Cells and High Density Lipoprotein level and help to decrease Low Density Lipoprotein level among the college level obese men.
