Effect of yogic practices on resting heart rate in differently abled students was examined. Sixty down syndrome students from Pratheeksha special school, Mukkam, Kozhikode District aged between 15 and 18 years were selected as subjects randomly. The subjects were equally divided into control group and experimental group. Yogic practices were assigned for twelve weeks to the experimental group. The control group was not allowed to participate in the programme. To all the subjects a pre-test and a post-test data were collected through bio monitor. The data collected from the subjects were statistically analyzed with ‘t’ ratio to find out the significant difference among experimental and control group on resting heart rate. The analysis reveals that the yogic practices significantly decreased the resting heart rate of differently abled students.
