This study consisted of four equal groups of fifteen subjects each. Group-I (n=15) underwent yogic practices, group-II (n=15) underwent physical exercise, group-III (n=15) acted as control group. The experimental groups were trained for three alternative days in a week for twelve weeks with their specific training. The collected data from the three groups prior to and immediately after the experimental treatments on selected dependent variables were statistically analyzed by using the statistical technique of analysis of covariance (ANCOVA), whenever they obtained ‘F’ ratio for the adjusted posttest means was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s post hoc test was applied to determine the paired mean differences, if any, was used.
