The aim of the study was to determine the effect of selected yogic practices on the development of speed, explosive strength and explosive power. The criterion measures were 50 yards dash, Sargent jump test, and standing broad jump test. To accomplish the purpose, 90 college women students of government first grade college, K.R.
