Effect of yoga training on handgrip, respiratory pressures and pulmonary function.
TLDR
The study shows that yoga training for 6 months improves lung function, strength of inspiratory and expiratory muscles as well as skeletal muscle strength and endurance and it is suggested that yoga be introduced at school level in order to improve physiological functions, overall health and performance of students. Expand
Effect of fast and slow pranayama practice on cognitive functions in healthy volunteers.
TLDR
Executive functions, PSS and reaction time improved significantly in both fast and slow pranayama groups, except reverse digit span, which showed an improvement only in fast pranaysama group. Expand
A comparative study of the effects of asan, pranayama and asan-pranayama training on neurological and neuromuscular functions of Pondicherry police trainees
TLDR
It is shown that 6 months training in asan, pranayama as well as their combination is effective in improving physiological functions of police trainees and is recommended that yoga training be introduced in police training curricula. Expand
Effect of slow and fast pranayams on reaction time and cardiorespiratory variables.
TLDR
It is concluded that different types of pranayams produce different physiological responses in normal young volunteers. Expand
Effect of fast and slow pranayama on perceived stress and cardiovascular parameters in young health-care students
TLDR
This study demonstrates that both types of pranayama practice are beneficial in reducing PSS in the healthy subjects but beneficial effect on cardiovascular parameters occurred only after practicing slow pranayaama. Expand
Acute effect of Mukh bhastrika (a yogic bellows type breathing) on reaction time.
TLDR
A decrease in RT indicates an improved sensory-motor performance and enhanced processing ability of central nervous system and may be of applied value in situations requiring faster reactivity such as sports, machine operation, race driving and specialised surgery. Expand
Effect of yoga therapy on reaction time, biochemical parameters and wellness score of peri and post-menopausal diabetic patients
TLDR
Yoga training reduced auditory reaction time (ART) from right as well as left hand, the decrease being statistically significant (P<0.05) for ART from the right hand and is the first such report in diabetic patients. Expand
Effect of a 12-week yoga therapy program on mental health status in elderly women inmates of a hospice
TLDR
It is recommended that yoga should be a part of health-care facilities for elderly as it can enhance the quality of life by improving their overall mental health status. Expand
Modulation of cardiovascular response to exercise by yoga training.
TLDR
After yoga training a given level of exercise leads to a milder cardiovascular response, suggesting better exercise tolerance, and exercise-induced changes in parameters were significantly reduced. Expand
Effect of pranayam training on cardiac function in normal young volunteers.
TLDR
The study shows that three months of pranayam training modulates ventricular performance by increasing parasympathetic activity and decreasing sympathetic activity, suggesting an enhanced parASYmpathetic and blunted sympathetic activity respectively. Expand
