Abstract
This study was done to assess the immediate effect of Bhasthrika and Brahmari pranayamas on Autonomic and Respiratory variables of Healthy individuals. Subjects of age 18-25 years who havenot had any form of exposure towards yogic practices for the past 3 months were randomly recruited from the SDM College of Naturopathy & Yogic Sciences, Ujire, Belthangady (Taluk) D.K (District), Karnataka (State). A total number of 210 subjects were screened. Ninety subjects met inclusion criteria and were allocated randomly by using a computer generated randomisation tool into 3 groups of 30 each. Group 1, Group 2 & Group 3 were assigned for the practice of Bhasthrika, Brahmari & Breath Awareness respectively. The data was collected at baseline, during & immediately after 5 mins of the practice for each group. The findings of the present study indicate that a significant increase in HR, RMSSD, LF, LF/HF ratio in all the three groups during the practice. However, interestingly an increase in HF was observed diuring Breath Awareness practice. Immediately following the practices, a significant reduction in HR, RMSSD, and HF were observed in all the three groups. However, NN50 increased significantly immediately following the practice as compared to the baseline levels following Bhramari and breath awareness groups. These findings suggest that all practices increase the sympathetic tone. Interestingly, Bhrastrika and Bhramari pranayama practices increases the cardiac tone as indicated through NN50.

Key words: Pranayama, Bhasthrika, Bhramari, BreathAwareness, Autonomic & Respiratory Variables
