A Comparative Study: Effect of Sudarshan Kriya (Sdk) & Shavasana on Cardio–Respiratory Parameters.

Dr. Jasmin J Parmar

Abstract :

The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of SDK & SHAVASANA on heart rate (HR), systolic blood pressure (SBP), peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) & maximum voluntary ventilation (MVV). Two groups, Group (A) & Group (B) had consisted 38 subjects in each. Group (A) performed SDK while Group (B) performed Shavasana for 3 months. The subjects’ cardio respiratory responses were compared before and after SDK & Shavasana sessions. The data were analyzed by paired t–tests. When the before and after data were analyzed in each group, the mean values for HR and SBP in both groups were significantly decreased after sessions, while PEFR & MVV were significantly increased in group (A) only. So this study showed that SDK improved the subjects’ cardiorespiratory responses in the Group (A).
