The Science of Yoga: The Risks and the Rewards

Written by William J. Broad

OPL BOOK SUMMARY:  Have you ever wondered why yoga is so popular or why it makes you feel good? Well, then this book is for you. The Science of Yoga, The Risks and Rewards by William J Broad is a well researched and informative read that explains yoga’s healing potential. Yoga is one of the fastest-growing health and fitness activities around the world. This book helps you understand the 13 different types of yoga and how they developed over the years (the good and the bad).

The first couple of pages of the chronology from 2500 BC to 2011 is a history fly by with fascinating facts, and sets the broad context.  The book then explores yoga with chapters on Health, Fit Perfection, Moods, Risk of Injury, Healing, Divine Sex, and Muse. I think you will find The Science of Yogato be informative and entertaining, and will motivate you to try yoga or expand your practice. 

As a treat for yourself, curl up with this  riveting true-life tale. Once you do, we are sure you will want to add sun salutations to your day!
