ABSTRACT:-
Background/Aim- The rising popularity of yoga competitions reflects a desire for enhanced performance, showcasing the interplay of yoga, strength training, and mental well-being. Regular practice fosters a positive mindset. This study aimed to link yogic performance with physical fitness measures and develop a predictive regression model. Methodology- 25 yoga practitioners between the ages of 10 and 15 were chosen for the study, which was conducted in the Delhi-NCR region. Yoga performance served as the dependent variable, whereas sit-ups, push-ups, balance, and flexibility served as the independent physical fitness variables for the study. Result- The results of however, owed that flexibility and yoga performance had a significant positive relationship, however there was little correlation between sit-ups, push-ups, and balance and yoga performance. The regression equation developed for the study reads: Yoga Performance=31.684+1.848 (Flexibility). Conclusion- The practice of yoga and meditation was found to be correlated with engagement in physical activity, as well as adherence to a vegetarian or vegan dietary regimen. Healthcare workers should be mindful of the potential susceptibility of those who practice yoga and meditation to engage in drug use. However, the numerous beneficial connections between yoga and meditation and various positive health behaviors justify its inclusion in preventive medicine and healthcare.
