Abstract: The present study was aimed to investigate the effect of Simplified Kundalini Yoga on personality development of adolescents. The study using devised standardized questionnaire, was conducted on 450 students from Government, Government aided and private schools situated in Chennai. Training consisting of simplified physical exercises, meditation and introspection, was imparted to the experimental group of 250 students. ‘t’ Tests were used to study the impact of the yoga on the various aspects of personality and the academic achievement of the students. Variance analysis was done to find out the differences in the aspects of personality and improvement, if any, in the academic achievement of the practitioners with respect to type of school, sex, and subject studied. Results of ANOVA highlighted that sex and the subjects studied have no significant bearing on the effects of Simplified Kundalini Yoga.
