Objective: The present study is done to determine the effect of Sudarshankriya Yoga on heart rate, systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and respiratory rate. Material and Methods: About 30 subjects (cases) underwent the practice of Sudarsharkriya Yoga for 12 weeks. Above cardio respiratory parameters were measured before and after the practice of Sudarshankriya Yoga. Comparative analysis is done for the effect of 12 weeks of yoga practice on these parameters. Results: Sudarshankriya yoga showed statistically significant decrease in the values of heart rate, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure as well as respiratory rate after 12 weeks of practice. Conclusion: The mechanism involved is by creating balance in autonomic nervous system functions by parasympathetic dominance and decreased sympathetic drive.
