Gyanendu Rai and Dr. Amar KumarAbstract:
The present study aims to determine the effect of Yoga therapy on cholesterol level [low density lipoprotein (LDL), high density lipoprotein (HDL) and triglyceride levels] of middle aged women. The sample for the study comprises of 30 females between the ages of 35 to 45 years. Sample was further divided into two groups (i) Experimental group (N=15), (ii) Control group (N=15). The subjects of the Experimental group went through a Yoga therapy for six week under the direct supervision of researchers. They performed –suryanamaskar Dhanurasana, Bhujagasana, Sarvangasana, Halasana, Chakarasana, Shalabhasana, Paschimotanasana, Purnmatsyandrasana and Nadishodhana, Sithali, Sitakari, Brahmari, Bhastrika and Kapalbhati Paranayama, shatkarma practices. The Control group was engaged in daily routine work. The subjects of both the groups were tested before and after the experimental period of six week. The data was analyzed statistically by applying ANCOVA. The results show that there is significant change on triglycerides and low density lipoprotein as a result of the experimental training. Since the result has revealed that there is a significance difference, the hypothesis is accepted. And results also show that there is no significant difference between high density lipoprotein as a result of experimental training and thus the hypothesis is rejected.Pages: 21-23 | 253 Views 25 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
