Abstract

The purpose of the study is to find out the effects of aerobic dancing and yogic practices on flexibility among college women students. To achieve this purpose of the study, Sixty college women students of Arulmigu Palani Andavar Arts College for Women, Palani,Tamilnadu, were selected as subjects and their age was between eighteen to twenty five years. The selected sixty students were divided into three equal groups. The experimental group – 1 (n = 20 AD group) underwent Aerobic Dancing, the experimental group – 2 (n = 20 YP group) underwent Yogic Practice and Group -3 (n= 20, CP) served as control participants. In the study, two different training approaches were adopted as independent variables, i.e., Aerobic Dancing (AT) and Yogic Practices (YP). Flexibility was chosen as a criterion variable. It was measured by sit and reach test and unit of measurement was in centimeters. The pre and post test random group design was used. Ancova was used to find out significant adjusted post test mean difference of three groups with respect to flexibility and Scheffe's post hoc test was used to find out pair-wise comparisons between groups with respect to flexibility.
