The study was conducted on 10 depressive students (aged 16 or above), selected by purposive sampling technique. Suicidal Ideation scale (SIS-SDBV) developed and standardized by Sisodia and Bhatnagar (2011)  was used to assess the prevalence of suicidal ideation among depressive students. The yogic practices undertaken were Kapalbhati, Anulom-vilom, Ujjayi pranayam and Omkar recitation wih Surya Namaskar and Shavasan as relaxation technique. The Yogic class was organized by a specialized yoga instructor along with their doctor for an hour daily for the period of three months, by taking prior permission from the parents of the students. One group pretest-posttest experimental design was used to analyze the data. The finding indicates that yogic practices strengthen the positive attitude among the students towards the life.
