Table 3 Gender wise comparison of BMR of yoga and non yoga groups along with their predicted values.

From: The effect of long term combined yoga practice on the basal metabolic rate of healthy adults

  Women Men
  Yoga (n = 24) Non Yoga (n = 15) Yoga (n = 31) Non Yoga (n = 34)
BMR (Kcal/d) 1061.0 ± 201.9‡,** 1275.1 ± 226.2 1303.3 ± 210.9‡,** 1484.3 ± 237.2
BMR 19.1 ± 3.5‡,** 23.5 ± 5.2 21.8 ± 3.3‡,* 23.7 ± 4.4
Predicted BMR (Kcal/d) 1249.7 ± 98.5 1244.9 ± 82.1 1495.5 ± 131.5 1501.7 ± 98.7
  1. Mean ± 1 SD
  2. ** P < 0.001, yoga group compared with non yoga group
  3. * P < 0.05, yoga group compared with non yoga group
  4. P < 0.001, BMR of subjects in each group compared with their predicted values
