Author(s): Rekha Goswami and Dr. Madan Singh Rathore

Abstract:
This investigation was conducted to determine the effect of Anuloma Viloma pranayama on physiological variables among females of different age category. To accomplish the purpose of the study, ninety (90) female subjects were selected with age ranging between 21 to 35 years from greenwood academy and ITBP campus in lalkuan, Uttarakhand. They were further classified into three groups of 30 females each group based on their age Group 1: 21 to 25 years, Group 2: 26 to 30 years, and Group 3: 31 to 35 years each constitutes thirty (30) subjects. The investigator selected pulse rate, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, vital capacity, resting respiratory rate, and breath-holding time. The independent variable selected in the present study was Anuloma Viloma pranayama which was administered daily for three months. For the present study pretest—posttest randomized group design was used which consists of groups with respect to different ages on physiological variables. To analyze the effect of pranayama on the different age groups the Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was applied. When F is significant Scheffe S post hoc test was applied. Based on the findings of the study, it can be concluded that Anuloma Viloma pranayama training induces positive changes in the bodys cardiorespiratory adaptation, as confirmed by the improvement in all groups.
