A lead science writer for The New York Timesa€”and lifelong yoga practitionera€”examines centuries of history and research to scrutinize the claims made about yoga for health, fitness, emotional wellbeing, sex, weight loss, healing, and creativity. He reveals what is real and what is illusory, in the process exposing moves that can harm or even kill. A New York Times bestseller. The Science of Yoga draws on more than a century of painstaking research to present the first impartial evaluation of a practice thousands of years old. It celebrates whata€™s real and shows whata€™s illusory, describes whata€™s uplifting and beneficial and whata€™s flaky and dangerousa€”and why. Broad unveils a burgeoning global industry that attracts not only curious scientists but true believers and charismatic hustlers. He shatters myths, lays out unexpected benefits, and offers a compelling vision of how the ancient practice can be improved.86 86 87 88 88 88 88 88 88 88 88 89 89 vessels in the brain to contract: Ronald Ley, a€œBreathing and the Psychology of ... 147. increases in calm alertness: Richard P.
