Das Payel and Pandey VivekAbstract:
Practice of Yoga Nidra is one of the best practices for physical and mental relaxation and have an impact on both physiology and psychological relaxation. This physiology and psychological relaxation is stated in alpha rhythmic state which is favourable for central and peripheral recovery of the sports person’s best performances. The aim of the study was to investigate the immediate effect of Yoga Nidra on the pattern of Alpha amplitude after physical activity of sports person to enhance the psychological stress and physical relaxation. 22 (twenty-two) healthy advance badminton players aged ranged from 18-24 (male) were selected from badminton randomly from LNIPE, Badminton Match Practice Group and randomly placed into experimental and control group (11 each). Alpha amplitude was measured in Neurofeedback machine before and after the 30 minutes training session of Yoga nidra (progressive muscle relaxation followed deep relaxation with breathing awareness). ANCOVA was employed at 5% level of significance to analyze the data. Finally, Alpha amplitude was significantly increased (p<0.007) after the Yoga Nidra session. So, it has been concluded that Yoga Nidra has the positive and immediate effect in central and peripheral relaxation by altering the parasympathetic and endocrinological system which aids to reduce the stress and anxiety of the athlete.Pages: 214-217 | 396 Views 8 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
