A lead science writer for The New York Times—and lifelong yoga practitioner—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 what’s real and shows what’s illusory, describes what’s uplifting and beneficial and what’s flaky and dangerous—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.

Yoga is flying across the shores of Bharatha all over the world like an eagle. The entire humanity needs yoga today. If going after Yoga to get rid of diseases is one dimension, using Yoga to make our body healthy so that we can enjoy material pleasures is the other dimension. This was not what those great Rshis who evolved Yoga had in mind. Yoga is another name for pure living. If man lives, being aware of the purpose for which he was created, what else can it be excepted in Yoga? Human body is a temple. In a larger sense, it is the dwelling place of gods. Whatever one finds in the world is present in the human body. We have 72,000 Nerves in the body, also we have 72,000 Nadies which are subtle channels and centres of energy. We get a detailed account of these in books on Hatayoga. In this background Mudras and Bandhas occupy a place of great significance. We have a considerably difficult challenge to convert this Annamaya body into one, the object of which is Dharma Sadhana. Kalidasa has announced, "Shareeramadyam khalu dharma sadhanam". Our sages have said, "Manaeva manushyanam karanam bandha mokshayoho" Our mind is the cause of both Bandha and Moksha. In that case how can we make use of the techniques available to us to the best of our advantage? "Mudras" help us to keep our body and mind pure and chaste. They are tools to lead us to life fulfilment. When we activate the nerve and nadi centres in the body, they make the flow of energy smooth. Our body is a fantastic machine designed by the Creator. He has set in it a super computer called the 'Brain'. All the activities in our body are controlled by the Mind. The pressure exerted on certain key points in the body and in hands, energises the centres in the brain. We have come to know this truth as a result of experiments conducted in different parts of the world. Acupressure specialists assert that if we activate certain points in the legs, hands and ears, we can ward off a number of disorders of the body. In our ancient Tantra Marga we hear about "Khechari Mudra". During five thousand years after sage Vedavyasa, our ancestors have devised a number of ways to help man keep himself fit. They are simple and workable. We get a sea of information about Mudra Science in a number of books on Yoga shastra and Tantra Shastra. In a few of our epics also, we get references to these Mudras.

The Concise Book of Yoga Anatomy is the definitive guide to the study of yoga anatomy--a perfect companion book for any yoga teacher or practitioner seeking to understand the biomechanics of the body as it applies to yoga practice. The book is visually designed in quick reference format to offer useful information about the main skeletal muscles that are central to yoga, with asanas to demonstrate the particular muscles and muscle groups. Over 230 full color illustrations detail each muscle's origin, insertion, and action in order to clearly reveal how the muscles come into play in the movements and postures of yoga. Knowledge of yoga anatomy is paramount to the ability to teach or practice with no injury to oneself or others. With this foundation in place, it is possible to focus on the spiritual element of yoga as well as the physical. Yoga is a union of the two, so where appropriate, the more profound side of the practice is mentioned as it relates to the body. The Concise Book of Yoga Anatomy illustrates the form and function of the muscles first, then interlays the muscles into the yoga posture for full understanding in a clear and integrated way, explaining the technique of the asanas, as well as other important aspects of yoga: pranayamas, the bandhas, and chakras. Table of Contents About This Book 1 Anatomical Orientation 2 Muscles of Respiration 3 Muscles of the Face and Neck 4 Muscles of the Spine 5 The Deep Core and Pelvic Floor 6 Muscles of the Shoulder and Upper Arm 7 Muscles of the Forearm and Hand 8 Muscles of the Hip 9 Muscles of the Knee 10 Muscles of the Ankle/Foot Resources General Index Index of Muscles From the Trade Paperback edition.

Much of what is known as yoga today emphasizes physical postures and exercises to increase flexibility and help relaxation. But in fact, yoga has its roots in centuries of rigorous investigation and research in the East to develop an understanding of human consciousness and its potential. In Yoga, Osho explains the meaning of some of the most important Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, an early "scientist of the soul" who is credited with being the father of Raja Yoga, or the "royal path" of yoga that uses physical postures and breath primarily as a means to achieve higher states of consciousness. With a fresh translation of these ancient texts, and unique Osho insights into the modern mind and its psychology, Patanjali comes to life on the pages with an approach to using yoga for greater self-understanding that is absolutely relevant to our times. An invaluable resource for beginning or experienced yoga practitioners, and for anyone who seeks to better understand the intricate and powerful relationship that exists between body and mind.

The Science of Meditation, Yoga, and Prayer" explores and explains the various, scientific health benefits of yoga and meditation, it merges eastern practices of well-being with western science. Scientific research demonstrates that yoga is a superior form of exercise for overall well-being and combatant of stress. Everyone experiences stress daily, and chronic stress increases oxidative stress in the human body, which is related to many illnesses including heart attacks and strokes. Yoga and meditation are some of the most effective ways to relieve such stress. Scientific research has shown that sometimes prayer can be effective in saving the life of a critically ill patient when all medical options are exhausted. Currently, some scientists attempt to explain healing power of prayer and distant healing which cannot be explained from known theories of medical science by using quantum entanglement theory. Throughout the book Dr. Dasgupta has cited original peer reviewed publications in medical journals to convince readers regarding many health benefits of yoga and meditation as well as potential power of prayer. "This provocative and thought provoking book is an excellent resource for the medical professional or lay person seeking a deeper understanding of spiritual practices from a scientific perspective.

In the wake of the anthrax letters following the attacks on the World Trade Center, Americans have begun to grapple with two difficult truths: that there is no terrorist threat more horrifying -- and less understood -- than germ warfare, and that it would take very little to mount a devastating attack on American soil. In Germs, three veteran reporters draw on top sources inside and outside the U.S. government to lay bare Washington's secret strategies for combating this deadly threat. Featuring an inside look at how germ warfare has been waged throughout history and what form its future might take (and in whose hands), Germs reads like a gripping detective story told by fascinating key figures: American and Soviet medical specialists who once made germ weapons but now fight their spread, FBI agents who track Islamic radicals, the Iraqis who built Saddam Hussein's secret arsenal, spies who travel the world collecting lethal microbes, and scientists who see ominous developments on the horizon. With clear scientific explanations and harrowing insights, Germs is a masterfully written -- and timely -- work of investigative journalism.
