To determine the effects of Anulom Vilom and Bhastrika Pranayama on Vital Capacity and Maximal Ventilatory Volume, thirty (N = 30) randomly  selected male students aged 18 - 26 years volunteered to participate in the study from D.A.V. Institute of Engineering and Technology, Jalandhar (Punjab), India. They were randomly assigned into two groups: A (experimental) and B (control). The subjects were subjected to the eight week pranayama training programme that includes “Anulom Vilom Pranayam” and “Bhastrika Pranayam”. The between-group differences were assessed using the Student’s t-test for dependent data. The level of p £ 0.05 was considered significant. The vital capacity and maximal ventilatory volume significantly improved in group A compared with the control one.Pranayama training programme may be recommended to improve vital capacity and maximal ventilatory volume.

 

Key words: Pranayama-bhastrika-anulom, vilom-vital, capacity-maximal ventilatory volume.
