Keywords:video analysis, kinematic parameters, techniques, asanas, virksasana. the angle of joints, movement of body parts and position of balance, holding time, sports motion analysis camera and software.
Background: Yoga asanas help to increase the wholesome development of an individual. At the same time,
the execution of the asanas gives complete benefits to the practitioners.
Aim: The purpose of the study was to find out the application of video analysis for enhancing kinematic
parameters and techniques of yoga performers.
Methods and Material: For this study, three men yoga performers selected from SRMV Maruthi College
of Physical Education, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India. The age of the participants was 24 years. He had
a good experience in performing yoga including difficult classical asanas. For this study angle of joints,
movement of body parts and position of balance, holding time were selected as dependent variables. Sports
Insight motion analysis cameras and software were used to find out the angle of joints, movement of body
parts and body balance. The baseline kinematic variables were tested before intervention. At the time of
intervention, the execution of the asana (virksasana) was recorded by the researcher through the sports
motion analysis camera and software.
Statistical analysis used: Descriptive statistics were used to analyse the performance of the yoga performers.
Results: The captured video was showed to the participant to understand his execution of asana. The
researcher gave the necessary guidance to correct the mistakes and provide opportunities for self-evaluation.
After the 10 days of training, post-test was conducted and data were collected from the participant.
Conclusion: It is concluded that the application of video analysis produced a significant difference in
angle of joints, movement of body parts among the yoga performers. It is concluded that the application of
video analysis produced significant improvement in the position of balance, holding time among the yoga
