For this reason ninety eight female volunteers (age 14–16 yrs) were screened haphazardly from Midnapore District, West Bengal, India. Every one of the volunteers experienced a therapeutic examination performed by Physicians. Thirty eight volunteers were prohibited and the staying sixty (n = 60) volunteers were arbitrarily partitioned into two groups (a) Yoga Group (n = 30) and (b) Control Group (n = 30). Yoga preparing - 60 mind, 06 dwk for 12 wks was followed in yoga bunch with no yoga preparing in control gathering. Noteworthy decrease (P<0.05) in body fat, body mass, SBP, RHR and RR and increment (P<0.05) in FVC, FEV1, PEFR, MVV and BHT were noted in the yoga bunch following 12 weeks of yoga preparing when contrasted with pattern information. Further, the control gathering had essentially (P<0.05) higher body fat, body mass, SBP, RHR and RR and (P<0.05) lower FVC, FEV1, PEFR, MVV and BHT when contrasted with yoga bunch following 12 weeks of study. It very well may be proposed that yoga practice may diminish body fat and the danger of cardio-pulmonary diseases.
