The performance of archers is reliant on varied factors. These factors range from biomechanical, physical, physiological to psychological. The beneficial effect of yoga on physical, physiological and psychological functioning has been advocated in so many scientific studies. The research gap is regarding the effect of specific yoga exercises on performance parameter of male archers. This study is directed to address this issue by means of an experimental study. To conduct the study 100 national level male archers were selected. In the pre-post test experimental design, the male archers were divided in two groups namely experimental and control group. The yogic exercise program prepared by Patanjali Yogpeeth Haridwar was used in this study. The shooting ability of male archers was assessed with a target placed at 70 meters. The male archers placed in experimental group were subjected to 06 months yogic exercise program apart from regular training schedule of male archers from both the groups.
