For the purpose of the study college male students were selected at random from Colleges, Amravati (Maharashtra) India. They were studying in the college around Amravati and their age ranges from 18 to 25 years. Eighty male selected as subjects for this study. All the subjects were divided into two groups consisting of forty subjects each. The Subjects was selected by using simple random sampling method. Stop watch was used to measure the Breath holding capacity, Stethoscope was used for counting the heart rate of the subjects and Peak Flowmeter was used to measure the exhale capacity. The data thus collected were put to statistical treatment computing independent‘t’ test to find out the differences, if any between the pre and posttest. Further the level of significance was set at 0.05. In this research it is observed that there has been significance difference between the pre and posttest experimental group in breath holding capacity, heart rate and exhale capacity. There has been not significance difference between the pre and posttest control group in breath holding capacity, heart rate and exhale capacity. This study indicated that regular pranayamas is beneficial for human health and future generation.
