For the purpose of the study 10 obese children selected through random purposive sampling technique from Bolpur, Birbhum, West Bengal, India. They were divided into two groups, namely HYG (N-5) and CG (N-5). BMI was calculated through height and weight. SF 36 questionnaire was used to get the information on health-related quality of life. The gathered information were analysed through ANCOVA and the significant level was kept at 0.05. The ANCOVA revealed that the six week hatha yoga training program is effective for the improvement of BMI and health-related quality of life of obese children.</p> 2023-06-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Indian Journal of YOGA Exercise & Sport Science and Physical Education Proposed NEP-2020 Syllabus for 4 Years Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Yoga 2023-06-05T18:49:53+00:00 Samiran Mondal Sushil Prasad Mahato <p>In 2000, the University Grants Commission, Ministry of Human Resource and Development, Government of India, requested all the universities to open a new yoga department in the name of Department of Yoga and Human Consciousness. They offered academic and non-academic posts with financial support for infrastructure and other essential commodities. Some interested universities have opened yoga departments since then and continue to do so successfully. After a long gap again, in 2016 Government of India selected six central universities, one from each zone, to open the Department of Yogic Art &amp; Science. UGC offered 11 cores for five years for the foundation and development of these departments for staffs and infrastructure. Between 2000 to 2016, UGC occasionally provided all the universities with at least to open yoga center for their communities and stakeholders. In 2016 UGC mentioned the following seven courses to be open step by step. 1. Certificate in Yoga, 2. PG Diploma In Yoga, 3. PG Diploma in Yoga Therapy, 4. B.Sc in Yoga, 5. M.Sc. in Yoga, 6. Ph.D. in Yoga, 7. Integrated M.Sc. Ph.D. in Yoga. After 2016 slowly, other central, state, private, and deemed universities started to open yoga department or converted yoga centers into a department. National Education Policy-2020 (NEP-2020), allows us to reconstruct the Yoga courses for the best benefit of our future generation.</p> 2023-06-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Indian Journal of YOGA Exercise & Sport Science and Physical Education Effects Of Circuit Training And Battle Rope Training On Cardio Respiratory Endurance Of School Girls 2023-04-30T13:52:20+00:00 Maniazhagu Dharuman <p>The purpose of the present study was to find out the effects of circuit training and battle rope training on cardio respiratory endurance of school girls. To achieve the purpose of the study thirty school girls from M. Deivanai Achi Government Girls Higher Secondary School, Paganeri, Sivaganga District, Tamilnadu were selected as subjects. The selected subjects’ age ranged from 11 to 13 years. The selected subjects were equally divided into three groups, i.e. two experimental groups and one control group. The experimental group-1 was allotted to circuit training (CT); the experimental group-2 was allotted for battle rope training (BRT) and group-3 acted as control group (CG). The cardio respiratory endurance was chosen as a dependent variable; it was tested by 9 minutes run/walk test. The test was taken before and after the training interventions. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyze the significant difference, if any among the groups. In order to find out superiority effect among the groups, the Scheff’s Post Hoc test was used. The level of significance was 0.05. After the six weeks training interventions the experimental groups improved the capacity of cardio respiratory endurance. The best improvement was noticed in circuit training. </p> 2023-06-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Indian Journal of YOGA Exercise & Sport Science and Physical Education Effectiveness of Conditioning Program on Cardio-respiratory Fitness and Self-concept of Obese Adolescent Male 2023-04-19T13:08:30+00:00 Mritunjoy Das <p>Obesity is a worldwide epidemic, with prevalence rates doubling over the last 15-20 years, and India has the second highest number of obese children in the world, with 14.4 million. Considering the importance of obesity, the problem has been stated as – the ‘Effect of conditioning program on cardiorespiratory fitness and self-concept of obese Adolescent males.’ The main objective of this study was- to observe the effect of 12 weekly conditioning training programs on Cardio-respiratory fitness and Self-concept of obese Adolescent males. A total of 40 obese adolescent males were selected, and their ages ranged between 15 to 17 years. The 12-minute Cooper test and standardized six-dimensional self-concept questionnaire of Prof Raj Kumar Saraswat were considered criterion measures. The BMI was used to classify the subjects into two equal groups (i.e.-Con-1and Exe-1), pair sample designing was developed, and the initial information was collected; then 12-week conditioning program was given to the Experimental group. After 12 weeks of training, the post-test information was collected from both the Control and Experimental group, and the descriptive statistical procedure ANCOVA method was applied to get better results. The following conclusions were drawn –This study showed a significant effect on cardio-respiratory fitness and Self-concept of Obese adolescent males.</p> 2023-06-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Indian Journal of YOGA Exercise & Sport Science and Physical Education Use of modern Technology in the recently concluded 2022 Quatar World Cup Football 2023-04-29T07:56:18+00:00 Saikot Chaterjee <p>From the very dawn of human civilization human folk have been engaged in some form of physical activity for earning their livelihood.

For this, four hundred (400) adolescent girls age ranging from 11 through 15 years from twenty (20) schools of Bhagwanpur – II Block of Purba Medinipur district, a coastal area of the south Bengal. To assess the O-Scale adiposity the skin fold measurements consist of triceps, sub-scapular, supra iliac, abdominal, thigh and calf sites according to ISAK International Standards for Anthropometric Assessment (2011) using the CESCORF Innovare-3 Skin fold Calliper. Collected skin fold thickness in mm was used to assess the %-Fat, total fat in kg and O-scale adiposity by using standard equations. Again the O-scale adiposity was converted into stanine scores from percentile norms. Analysing the collected date it was found that the OScale adiposity is increased according to age except at the age of 12 years as the subjects entered in to menarche resulting in routine blood loss.</p> 2023-06-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Indian Journal of YOGA Exercise & Sport Science and Physical Education Mental Imagery Between Indigenous & Ball Games Players: A Comparison 2023-05-25T05:57:46+00:00 Kallol Chatterjee Ommar Ali <p>Background: - Ball game is a very popular game all over world and indigenous sport also very popular in India.

Also, they mentioned that after completing first-year Sem-I and II, students would be awarded a UG certificate if they leave the courses. After completing two years, a student may earn a UG Diploma and, after three years, a UG degree. If the student completes a total of 4 years, they may get four years UG degree with honours, and with the dissertation option, the student will be offered honours with a research degree. NEP-2020 UG syllabus structure also mentioned that students must select major subjects and minor subjects, which will be reflected on their mark sheet.</p> 2023-06-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Indian Journal of YOGA Exercise & Sport Science and Physical Education Bachelor of Physical Education (BPEd): Proposed 4 Years Integrated Teacher Education Programme (ITEP) 2023-08-12T07:16:35+00:00 Dr. Samiran Mondal <p>National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020) mentioned that students will join the teaching profession not by chance but by choice.
