The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of Chandra-Nadi Pranayama on metabolic fitness (MetF) and bone integrity. Thirty eight, university level girls, aged between 21-26 years were selected. The subjects were purposively assigned into two groups: Group-A, Experimental (n 1 =19); Group-B, Control (n 2 =19). The subjects from Group-A were subjected of 4 weeks of Chandra-Nadi Pranayama. Student t test for paired samples was utilized to compare the means of the pre-test and the post-test. Based on the analysis of the results obtained, we conclude that the significant differences were found in metabolic fitness (i.e., Maximal Oxygen Consumption) at university level girls. Insignificant between-group differences were noted in blood lipid and blood glucose level, blood pressure and bone integrity.
