The authors would like to apologise for the following errors that the original paper contains [1].

1. Last Sentence in the Abstract

Present version: However, we noted a significant fall in the diastolic blood pressure immediately after performing the isotonic exercise for five minutes, in Vata-Kapha individuals in comparison to the other two groups, namely, Pitta-Kapha and Vata-Pitta.

To be corrected as: However, we noted that the rise in diastolic blood pressure recorded immediately after performing the isotonic exercise for five minutes was significantly minimal in Vata-Kapha individuals in comparison to the other two groups, namely, Pitta-Kapha and Vata-Pitta.

2. Last Sentence in the Observations Section

Present version: This means that the fall in DBP was significant in VK group in comparison to VP and PK groups.

To be corrected as: This means that the rise in DBP was significantly minimal in VK group in comparison to VP and PK groups.

3. First Sentence in the Last Paragraph of the Discussion Section

Present version: A significant fall in DBP among Vata-Kapha individuals, recorded immediately after performing the isotonic exercise for five minutes, in comparison to Pitta-Kapha and Vata-Pitta individuals is another observation that is noteworthy.

To be corrected as: A significantly minimal increase in DBP among Vata-Kapha individuals, recorded immediately after performing the isotonic exercise for five minutes, in comparison to Pitta-Kapha and Vata-Pitta individuals is another observation that is noteworthy.

4. Fifth Sentence in the Last Paragraph of the Discussion Section

Present version: As the study suggests, vasodilatation and resultant fall in peripheral resistance predominates among Vata-Kapha individuals after the isotonic exercise in comparison to the other two groups.

To be corrected as: As the study suggests, vasodilatation predominates among Vata-Kapha individuals after the isotonic exercise in comparison to the other two groups.

5. Second Sentence in the Summary and Conclusion Section

Present version: Though, the study indicates that the basic cardiovascular responses do not significantly vary in accordance with the dual constitutional types of Ayurveda, it suggests that the fall in DBP recorded immediately after performing the isotonic exercise for five minutes varies significantly in relation to Prakriti groups and this fall is significant among VK group in comparison to VP and PK groups.

To be corrected as: Though the study indicates that the basic cardiovascular responses do not significantly vary in accordance with the dual constitutional types of Ayurveda, it suggests that the increase in DBP recorded immediately after performing the isotonic exercise for five minutes varies significantly in relation to Prakriti groups, and this increase is significantly minimal among VK group in comparison to VP and PK groups.
