The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of suryanamaskar practice on speed of movement and vital capacity. A group of 24 university girls (mean ± SD: age 21.45± 1.55 years, height 1.67 ± 0.036m, body mass 62.00 ± 3.39kg) volunteered to participate in this study. They were randomly assigned into suryanamaskar (S) and control (C) groups, n = 12 each. The S group was subjected to 5 week practice consisting of 12 asanas; the control group participated in the routine yoga training. The 5 week suryanamaskar practice brought about significant improvements in speed of movement and vital capacity. None of the variable significantly improved in Group C. The suryanamaskar practice may be recommended to improve speed of movement and vital capacity and may contribute to enhance concentration based performance and voluntary control of breathing.
Key words:

Suryanamaskar, speed of movement, vital capacity
