ABSTRACT
This study was conducted with a view to observe the short term effect of residential yoga and diet program on lipid profile in police officers. The attributes of lipid profiles were measured at the beginning, middle (end of first week) and end of yoga intervention (end of second week) using pre-post single group design. The study was of two weeks conducted at Kaivalyadhama, Lonavla. The first week was self controlled period, whereas the second week was the experimental period. The participants were police officers recruited by Government of Maharashtra, who attended the yoga program. The intervention consisted of asana, pranayama, meditation, kriya and yogic diet. The outcome measures were lipoprotein profile and were determined in fasting blood samples, taken on day first, middle (end of first week) and last day of the camp. The results revealed that Cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL and very low density lipoprotein were significantly lower at the end of the camp. No significant difference was observed in case of low density lipoprotein (LDL) and cardiovascular risk ratio. The results suggest that short term yoga and diet modification program leads to improvement in lipoprotein profile.
