Influence of simplified kundalini yoga on selected body mass index and resting pulse rate among obese school girls


Author(s): Dr. S Saroja

Abstract:
The purpose of the Random group experimental study was to find out the influence of Simplified Kundalini Yoga on selected Body Mass Index and Resting Pulse Rate among Obese School Girls. It was hypothesized that there would be significant differences in Body Mass Index (BMI) and Resting Pulse Rate among Obese School Girls due to the influences of Simplified Kundalini Yoga. To achieve the purpose of the study, 30 Obese (BMI of 30 to 35) school girls from Alagappa Group of Educational Institutions, Karaikudi, Sivagangai District aged between 14 to 18 years were selected randomly into experimental and control groups of 15 subjects each. The selected subjects were divided into one experimental group and a control group with 15 subjects each in a group. Experimental group underwent Simplified Kundalini Yoga for the period of 12 weeks, six days per week of 1 hour basically, then slightly increased to 1.15 hours and 1.30 hours in the morning. The control group was not exposed to any specific training but they participated in their regular activities. The pre-test and post- tests were conducted before and after the training for both the groups. The Body Mass Index (BMI) was measured by Weighing machine, Meter Scale and Resting Pulse Rate was measured by BP Monitor machine. The data pertaining to the variables collected from the two groups before and after their training period were statistically analyzed by using Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) to determine the significant difference. The hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of confidence. The results of the study showed that Body Mass Index (BMI) and Resting Pulse Rate were decreased significantly as a result of Simplified Kundalini Yoga. Hence, the hypothesis was accepted at 0.05 level of confidence. The conclusion was that the Simplified Kundalini Yoga was effective in decrease Body Mass Index (BMI) and Resting Pulse Rate among Obese School girls.
