EFFECT OF YOGA NIDRA AND PRANAYAMA ON STRESS AND SOCIAL ADJUSTMENT CAPACITY OF TRIBAL STUDENTS
Dr. Binod Chowdhary
Yoga nidra, which is derived from the tantras, is a powerful technique in which you learn to relax consciously. Yoga nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. During the practice of yoga nidra, one appears to be asleep, but the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness. For this reason, yoga nidra is often referred to as psychic sleep or deep relaxation with inner awareness. The purpose of this study was to determine the Effect of Yoga Nidra and Pranayama on Stress and Social Adjustment Capacity of Tribal Students. Ninety tribal students, with age ranging between 17 to 22 years were randomly selected as subjects of the study. The Experimental Group – A participated in Yoga Nidra where as Experimental Group – B participated in Pranayama. The control group (Group-C) did not participate in practice of yogic programmes. The training was conducted for a period of twelve weeks, five days a week. Significant improvement was found in stress performance as a result of the experimental treatments in all the two experimental groups. Significant improvement was found in social adjustment performance as a result of the experimental treatments in all the two experimental groups.
