Keywords:Yoga, Women, New Media
In the present scenario women are often seen becoming figure conscious particularly the young ones aged between 18 to 30 years adapting various physical exercises. Yoga is one such natural exercise. A research regarding this phenomenon was conducted among the residents of Raipur, the state capital of Chhattisgarh. A sample size of 20 respondents was taken on the basis of the area they visit for performing the yoga asanas in early morning hours. The research problem included what type of New Media is preferred by the young women, Are there any particular asanas they often practice, Do they encourage others for performing yoga and has Indian government’s call for yoga promotion influenced them. The hypothesis for the first research problem was it might be Google, Youtube or Facebook. The second hypothesis was most of them are career focused so it is difficult to presume the asana preferred by them while the third hypothesis was they must be encouraging others and the fourth presumption was the government’s call has influenced them. Interestingly, the four hypotheses turned true after conducting the research.
