The major objective of the study is to compare the standard chess time controls with yoga time controls. Yoga is skill in action while the time control in the chess game is how much time a player gets to make their own pawn moves. In this study 630 subjects have been selected using randomised control trial method. They are divided into two groups; pre and post. Pre group is without yoga and post group is with yoga education and the results were determined using a t test for paired data. The results show that the values are highly significant at p<0.001. Although time spent playing in yogic instant, quick and deep relaxation times was smaller than the time control times of chess game but showed stronger correlations. This tendency is also reflected within various pawns of the chess game. Time control games as per standard times spent is more than 3 times or 40% more time than the yogic blitz time control of 6 minutes which has significant difference with classical standard time controls of ≤10 minutes. Results are discussed within the frame of social interaction and competition provided by the opposite player. Incorporating Yoga based time control chess games in standard regulations, schools and colleges may be useful in improving the chess quality with memory time controls and wellness of the students and also for the general public.
