Abstract: Reaction time is the easiest methods of assessing the sensory and motor performance of an individual. It is an indicator of performance in surgeons, sports personnel etc. Yoga can improve the reaction time. Hence, this study was undertaken to study the effect of yoga training on visual and auditory reaction time. Fifty healthy subjects aged between 18 and 25 years were selected. Auditory reaction time and visual reaction time were assessed before and after yoga training. There was significant decrease (p<0.05) in the alert values of both Auditory reaction time and Visual reaction time after two months of yoga training. Yoga training enhances the reaction times which are helpful in surgeons, sportsmen and skilled workers.
