The design of this study is experimental with pre-test – post-test control and experimental group. So the investigator followed a quasi-experimental study. Thirty five students were considered in the experimental group and another 35 students were in the control group. Before the experiment, the investigator administered a pre-test for measuring Emotional Competence, which was measured through emotional competency test using EC-Scale (Dr. Harish Sharma and Dr. Rajeev Lochan Bharadwaj, Department of Psychology, D.S.

In order to equalise and compare two groups, namely Control and Experimental group, the statistical technique used was Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). The main finding of this study is Yoga is a discipline to improve or develop one’s inherent power in a balanced manner. It offers the means to attain complete self-realization.
