Locals: The Science of Yoga


Larchmont resident Bill Broad knows something about yoga- he has practiced it for many years. And he knows a bit about science, too, being a lead science writer for the New York Times. So his soon-to-be-released book, The Science of Yoga, may be the first modern look at yoga from someone that practices both.

The publisher’s notes say, “He shows what’s uplifting and beneficial, what’s flaky and delusional, what’s dangerous and even deadly. In the end, he offers a compelling vision of how the ancient practice can be improved.”

Maybe you’ll better understand the reason you feel so good after your next downward facing dog. (I just started the book, and the writing is everything you would expect from the Science Times)

The Science of Yoga will be available Feb. 7, and Broad will be signing books at Anderson’s on February 11, and talking about it at the Larchmont Library at 3:30 March 25.
