Abstract
The present study was undertaken to see whether yogic practices has positive effect on self-esteem and emotional stability of orthopedically challenged adolescents. The sample consisted of purposively selected 15 school going adolescents of grade VIII and IX aged 12-16. Self-esteem scale developed by M. S. Prasad and G. P. Thakur and Emotional stability scale for children developed by A.K. Gupta and A.K. Singh was administered on the subject before and after the yogic programme. The components of yogic intervention comprised of theoretical classes on Ashtanga yoga, Asanas, and Pranayamas, and practical classes on Pranayama. One group pretest-posttest experimental design was used to analyze the data. Result indicates that yogic practices have positive impact on the self-esteem and emotional stability of orthopedically challenged adolescents. Hence, it may be inferred that practice of yoga for one month may develop the better self-esteem and emotional stability among the practitioners.
