For the purpose of the study sixty sedentary women were selected purposively from Bolpur, Birbhum, West Bengal, India as the subject. They were categorized into two age group of 30 to 40 years (n-30) and 40 to 50 years (n-30). Each age group were also divided into two- experimental group (n-15) and control group (n-15). Flexibility was selected as the variable for the study. Eight weeks training program of the selected asanas were given to both the experimental groups. Pre-test and post-test data of all the groups were taken by using sit and reach test. To calculate the data descriptive statistics, Analysis of Co-variance (ANCOVA) and LSD post-hoc and independent t-test were used. The level of significance was set at 0.05 level. The result revealed the significant effect on flexibility of both the experimental groups-EG-1 (F-13.469) and EG-2 (F-10.223*). There was no significant difference between the two experimental groups. On the basis of the result, it was concluded that the asanas have significant effect on flexibility of the sedentary women group.
