Author(s): Dr. P Vanithamani

Abstract: The purpose of the study is to find out effect of specific yogic exercises and combination of specific yogic exercises and autogenic training on selected biochemical variables of climacteric women. To study the effect of the combination of selected yogic exercises and autogenic training on selected biochemical variables such as high density lipoprotein, low density lipoprotein, fasting blood sugar, hemoglobin, blood urea of the climacteric women, To study the effect of the of selected yogic exercises programme on selected biochemical variables of the climacteric women and to compare the groups. This study was formulated using random group design consisting of specific yogic exercises and combination of specific yogic exercises with autogenic training groups. The subjects (N=60) were divided at random, into three equal groups of twenty climacteric women in each, the groups were subjected to pre-test prior to the experimental treatment. The experimental groups participated in their respective duration of twelve weeks, six days in a week throughout the study. The various tests administered were: prior to training (pre-test), mid period of training sixth week (second-test) and twelfth week (post-test) of the training schedule. The results of the study indicate that the experimental groups namely Specific yogic exercises group, and Combination of specific yogic exercises with autogenic training group significantly improved in their performance as selected dependent variables, when compared to the control group. It also found that the improvement caused by combination of specific yogic exercise group with autogenic training was greater when compared to specific yogic exercises group in the selected dependent variables.
