Abstract: This study was to find out the impact of different method of yogic practices on body mass index and vital capacity among overweight women. To achieve this purpose of the study forty five overweight women were selected from in and around Tiruchendur, Tamil Nadu and their age ranged between 30 to 40 years. These subjects were classified into three groups, namely asana with pranayama practices group, asana with mudra practices group and control group. All groups were confined to 15 subjects each. The training groups were participated in the respective yogic practices for a period of twelve weeks (five days per week) to find out the outcomes of the training programme and the control group did not participate in any other training programme. The physiological parameters were confined to body mass index (BMI) and vital capacity. Prior after the training period body mass index (BMI) and vital capacity were measured by standardized test. Both asana with pranayama practices group and asana with mudra practices group influence on body mass index and vital capacity when compare with control group. Asana with pranayama practices may have better influence on body mass index and vital capacity of obese women.
