Author(s): Preeti Deshlahra and Mahendra Kumar Singh

Abstract:
The daily practice of yoga, which has its origins in ancient Indian culture, is associated with attaining optimal levels of physical, mental, intellectual, and spiritual wellness. Pranayama and Asana are the two disciplines that make up yoga. These have a lot of favorable impacts on the body's physiology, manifesting in various systems. The current experiment was initiated in response to evidence that was published on the influence that asanas and pranayama had on the weight of male school-aged youngsters. To determine whether or not there is a difference in weight between the participants who practiced yoga postures (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama), or both (asana-pranayama combinations), and the subjects who did not practice any kind of yoga. It was decided to pick 20 male student volunteers from the city of Gwalior in the state of M.P., India, whose ages ranged from 14 to 18. A random selection approach was used to distribute the subjects equitably across the four groups, consisting of three experimental and one control group. Experimental Group A received asanas (five individuals), Group B received pranayama (five subjects), and Group C received a combination of asanas and pranayama (five subjects). The control Group D received no training for the course of the trial, which lasted for twelve weeks. They spent forty-five minutes, six days a week doing pranayama and asanas, except for Sunday, which was their weekly day off. The combination of asana and pranayama has been shown to considerably enhance Vital capacity in youngsters who are attending school.
