Dr. Savita Gahlawat
The present study was conducted to see the positive and healing effect of yogic practices on psychological health indicators of hearing challenged students. Psychological health indicators viz., self-concept, feeling of well-being and mental health were selected for the present study. The yogic practices undertaken were Bhastrika, Kapalbhati, Anulom-vilom, Brhamari, Ujjai, Omkar recitation/Udgeet pranayam and Shavasan as relaxation technique. The study was conducted on 30 hearing challenged students (aged12-16), selected by purposive sampling technique. The Yogic class was organized by a specialized yoga instructor on the behalf of the researcher for an hour daily for the period of three months, keeping in view the nature and extent of the disability of these students. One group pretest-posttest experimental design was used to analyze the data. The finding indicates that self-concept, feeling of well-being and mental health improves after the practice of yoga. Hence, Yogic practices strengthen the psychological health state of a hearing challenged student.
