Dr. Pravin LamkhadeAbstract:
The aim of the present study was to find out the effect of sanjivani pranayam on physiological health of collegiate level boys. In this study a total of 100 boys from various colleges (affiliated to Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj, Nagpur University, Nagpur) situated in the rural area of Nagpur District (affiliated to Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj, Nagpur University, Nagpur), were selected as subjects for the study. Prior to conducting the study, it was ensured that subjects were medically fit (checked by registered medical officer) to undergo experimental requirements. The age of the subjects was between 18 and 25 years. An experimental Group-A (those who undertook the Sanjivani Pranayam training for a period of twelve weeks) consisted of 50 subjects and an equal numbers of subjects were in control Group-B. Subjects were selected randomly and then placed in the above mentioned groups. Pre-test and post-test was conducted on experimental group and control group by the investigator. Following physiological variables were studied, which are resting pulse rate, resting blood pressure, lung capacity and respiration rate. All the measurements were carried out as per standard methods. The significance of difference between the mean scores of different Psycho-Physiological variables of experimental and controlled group was determined by comparing the means of both the groups using dependent ‘t’ test procedure. For testing the difference between the means of two groups the level of confidence was set at 0.05.
On the basis of statistical analysis of the data pertaining to pulse rate, respiration rate, diastolic blood pressure and systolic blood pressure it is evident that there is (<0.05) significant decrease in the pulse rate of students after Sanjivani Pranayam training and increase in vital capacity of the study participant after 12 weeks of Sanjivani Pranayam practice.Pages: 171-173 | 561 Views 59 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
