Críticas:

"In this compelling work of investigative journalism, William Broad exposes the "scientific" claims made about yoga--from its much-vaunted healing powers to yogasms--to scientific scrutiny. "The Science of Yoga" is a wonderful read that any yoga practitioner thirsting for authenticity should study carefully before suiting up."--David Gordon White, author of "Kiss of the Yogini" "Dramatic...a flair for provocation...valuable." --"Publishers Weekly" "Yoga, an ancient practice with millions of modern practitioners, has been the subject of overheated speculation and grandiose claims; it has been dismissed without warrant as well, underappreciated by some who might well benefit from it. "The Science of Yoga" is a lucid and long overdue account of what scientists have found in their attempts to ferret out the truth about what yoga can and cannot do to heal and make better the body and mind. It is a fascinating and important book."--Kay Redfield Jamison, author of "An Unquiet Mind"and "Touched With Fire " ""The Science of Yoga" offers a riveting, much-needed, clear-eyed look at the yoga mystique. In this investigation, science journalist William Broad pullsback the curtain on the little-discussed world of yoga injuries and risks, while setting the record straight about the numerous potential benefits. Downward dog will never look the same." --Daniel Goleman, author of "Emotional Intelligence" "If this book doesn't motivate you to practice yoga, nothing will. Broad sheds light on yoga's health benefits and hoaxes, covering everything from headstands to hypertension, the vagus nerve to the YogaButt. Finally I understand why I feel so good when I do yoga. His lively exploration of its evolution from Benares to Beverly Hills flows like any great practice should - with intelligence, good humor and some mindblowing insights."--Priscilla Warner, author of "Learning to Breathe - My Yearlong Quest to Bring Calm to My Life" and co-author of "The Faith Club""" "After reading "The Science of Yoga", I am even more awed by the magnificent complexities of the human body and mind, and astonished that we can exert so much control over this invisible realm through the practice of yoga. Broad has not only thoroughly researched his topic, he has lived it."--Alan Lightman, author of "Einstein's Dreams" "William Broad is optimistic and hopeful in pointing the way to its future as a major force in preventing and treating disease." --Gail Sheehy, author of "Passages in Caregiving"

Reseña del editor:

The Science of Yoga draws on a hidden wealth of science, history, and surprising facts to cut through the fog that surrounds contemporary yoga and to show - for the first time - what is uplifting and beneficial and what is delusional, flaky, and dangerous. At heart, it illuminates the risks and rewards. The book takes the reader on a whirlwind tour of undiscovered yoga that goes from old libraries in Calcutta to the world capitals of medical research, from little-known archives to spotless laboratories, from sweaty yoga classes with master teachers to the cosy offices of yoga healers. In the process, it shatters myths, lays out unexpected benefits, and offers a compelling vision of how to improve the discipline.
