Abstract :

 The purpose of the study was to find out the effects of pranayama, suriyanamaskar and combined practices on

cardiorespiratory endurance of college students. To achieve the purpose of the study, sixty college women students from
Alagappa Arts College, Karaikudi, Tamilnadu were selected as subjects. The age, height and weight of the subjects ranged from 18 to 21 years,
155 to 162 centimeters and 45 to 55 kilograms respectively. The selected subjects were randomly assigned into four equal groups of 15 subjects
each. Group I underwent pranayama practice, group II underwent suriyanamaskar practice, group III underwent combined practice of pranayama
and suriyanamaskar practice andgroup – IV acted as control. The collected data analysed by analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). Since three
groups were involved, whenever the obtained ‘F’ ratio for adjusted post test means was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s test was applied as
post hoc test to determine the paired mean differences. Twelve weeks of combined practice induced to increase on cardiorespiratory endurance of
the college women students.
