Effect of yoga training on reaction time, respiratory endurance and muscle strength.
TLDR
The results show that yoga practice for 12 weeks results in significant reduction in visual and auditory RTs and significant increase in respiratory pressures, breath holding times and HGS. Expand
Effect of short-term practice of breathing exercises on autonomic functions in normal human volunteers.
TLDR
The findings of the present study show that regular practice of slow breathing exercise for three months improves autonomic functions, while practice of fast breathing Exercise for the same duration does not affect the autonomic function. Expand
Effect of six weeks yoga training on weight loss following step test, respiratory pressures, handgrip strength and handgrip endurance in young healthy subjects.
TLDR
Yoga training for a short period of six weeks can produce significant improvements in respiratory muscle strength and endurance and attenuation of the sweating response to step test by yoga training is demonstrated. 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
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
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
Correlation between body mass index and blood pressure indices, handgrip strength and handgrip endurance in underweight, normal weight and overweight adolescents.
TLDR
There are gender differences in the correlation between body mass index (BMI), blood pressure (BP) indices and indices of physical fitness in apparently healthy subjects aged 14-18 years and gender differences between BMI and BP indices may be due to differences in autonomic function and or energy metabolism. 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
Byssinosis among male textile workers in Pondicherry: a case-control study.
TLDR
Efforts to reduce dust levels in the working environment and to discourage smoking among textile workers need to be strengthened to minimize the risk of developing byssinosis. 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
