The aim of the current study was to investigate the impact of yogic exercises and aerobic exercises on the anxiety levels of secondary schoolchildren. To fulfill this objective, 150 students enrolled across different grades at Kendriya Vidyalaya, Ambajhari, Nagpur, Maharashtra, aged between 14 to 16 years, were selected. These participants were divided into three equal groups, each consisting of 50 subjects. Group-I participated in yogic exercises, Group-II engaged in aerobic exercises, While Group-III acted as the Control Group. The training sessions spanned 16 weeks in the morning. Data collection occurred both before and after the training period, and the gathered experimental data underwent rigorous statistical analysis to discern significance. Annas Group I and Group II underwent the 16-week training duration. Statistical analysis was conducted using analysis of covariation, revealing a statistically significant improvement post-training. The "F" ratio indicated significance, and Scheffe’s Test was employed as a post-test to identify the significantly differing paired means. In all instances, the standard criteria for statistical significance were set at a confidence level of 0.05 (p<0.05).
