Effects of Aerobic Capacity and BMI on Slow and Fast Suryanamaskar in Children: A Comparative Study

Prachi Manohar Arora | Dr. Gauri Mayank Afle


Abstract: Background: Suryanamaskar ancient Yogic technique which links 12 asanas are performed in sequence of one after the other. Each asanas is moved into the alternate inhalation and exhalation. Suryanamskar can be performed in slow and fast manner. Fast suryanamaskar (FSN) the suryanamskar is performed in a rapid manner and slow suryanamskar (SSN) is performed in slow manner. The maximal oxygen uptake (vo2 max), is a fundamental measurement for the exercise physiologist.Vo2 max can be measured by laboratory method and by field test method. For children field test is preferred i.e. 20 meter shuttle run test. Aim: To see the effect of Fast versus slow suryanamaskar on aerobic capacity and height, weight and BMI measurements. Methodology: It is a comparative study, in healthy children (n-60) between the age group of 10 yrs to 16 years. The intervention was carried for 4 weeks with 4-5 days/week. Outcome Measure: VO2 max measurements (By multiple regression analyses) and by measuring height, weight and BMI. Results: The comparison of pre and post vo2 max and BMI values in fast Suryanamskar was considered significant. The comparison of pre and post vo2 max and BMI values in slow Suryanamskar was is very significant. The comparison of post vo2 max and BMI values in slow and fast Suryanamskar was not significant. Conclusion: The study concludes that, Pre and post slow Suryanamskar BMI and vo2max values show less significant effects on BMI and more effect improving vo2max. The study concludes that, Pre and posts fast Suryanamskar BMI and vo2max values show more significant effects on BMI and less effect improving vo2max. Post fast and slow Suryanamskar BMI and vo2max values show no significant effects in this study.
