Abstract

This study was designed to assess the flexibility among teaching staffs of Bharathiar University and influence of selected yogic practice on them. To achieve the purpose of the study 300 teaching staffs were selected from Bharathiar University, Coimbatore. Flexibility was assessed by sit and reach test. Out of 300 subjects 195 subjects’ possess optimum flexibility and remaining 105 subjects do not possess the required flexibility. Forty subjects with poor range (-20 to -9) were selected randomly and assigned them into two equal groups (n=20). Group- I underwent yogic practice and Group - II acted as control group (CG). The training was given to the experimental group for 3 days per week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) for the period of eight weeks. The control group was not given any sort of training except their routine work. The data collected from the subjects was statistically analysed with‘t’ ratio to find out significant improvement if any at 0.05 level of confidence. The result speculated that the flexibility of the teaching staffs improved significantly due to influence of yogic practice with the limitations of ( diet, climate, life style ) status and previous training the result of the present study coincide findings of the investigation done by different experts in the field of sports sciences. From the findings it is postulated that yogic practice is suitable mode to bring out desirable changes over flexibility of teaching staffs.
