Dynamics of Heart rate induced by Sahaja yoga meditation in healthy normal subjects above 40 years

Monica Suresh Yunati, Vijaykumar Deshpande, Anita Hiraman Yuwanate.

Background: Ageing is associated with cganges in cardiac autonomic control as measured by Heart rate variability. Heart rate variability is an indicator of the dynamic interaction and balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic system.The HRV can be measured non invasively.Therefore it becomes an attractive measure to use in the study of the ANS to response to different stimuli.Sahaja yoga meditation creates a thoughtless awareness by virtue of which a balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system is achieved.

Aim and Objectives: To evaluate and compare the HRV parameters in healthy subjects above 40 years before and after practice of Sahaja yoga meditation and to correlate HRV parameters with age .

Methods : The study included 30 healthy normal subjects above 40 years of age ,willing for Sahaja yoga meditation , selected from JNMC campus as well as wardha district.The study group was between 40-70 years of age.The time domain and frequency domain parmeters of HRV were evaluated in all 30 subjects using RMS polyrite machine. The subjects were trained to practice sahaja yoga meditation.After 3 months of meditation practice, they were again evaluated for HRV parameters.The results were analyzed using unpaired student t test & pearrson:s correlation coefficient.

Results : The mean heart rate of the subjects decreased significantly from 72.59+ 10.5 to 68.30 + 7.5 ( p value

Key words: Ageing; Heart Rate variability (HRV); Sahaja Yoga Meditation
