RESULTS:- In our study out of 150 patients total 76 patients (PG n=27, YG n=25, CG n=24)completed the study including follow-up. At the end of 12 month, result shown significant improvement in Group A; P0.05, as compare to Group B and Group C for lung function, QOL, exercise capacity (6MWT), mood and psychological distress (DASS21), chest expansion,reduction in rate of acute exacerbation, emergency visit and hospitalization in patient with COPD.CONCLUSION: -Our study concludes that long term home based physiotherapy and yogic kriya both are effective in improving lung function
