Efficacy of yoga therapy on selected bio-chemical variables among middle aged hypertensive womenAuthor(s):
The purpose of the study was to find out the efficacy of yoga therapy on selected bio-chemical variables among middle aged hypertensive women. To facilitate the study, 30 subjects were selected at random from Godhavari District only. Their age were ranged between 30-45 years old. They were assigned into two groups as yoga therapy group and control group. All the subjects were tested prior to and immediately after the 6 weeks treatment in progression to bio-chemical variables such as low density lipoprotein (LDL) and cholesterol. The initial and final scores in selected bio-chemical variables were put in-to statistical treatment using Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) to find out the significant mean differences. Systematic six weeks of yoga therapy reduced the LDL and cholesterol more than the control group.Pages: 04-06 | 443 Views 28 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
