Listen to the author who “wrecked” yoga as he gives a 40min interview – particularly, well, interesting when he explains why historically yoga is closely linked to sexuality (25. minute), and how Indians tried to “clean it up” in the 1920ies. 🙂
However, he indeed does raise several valid points (as some readers pointed out in their replies to my earlier post) and admits that there’s a lot of things about yoga that science cannot answer, describe or quantify such as “what is enlightenment?“.
Bottom line : He says that overall the risks are outweighed by the benefits – not something we could have easily guessed from the NYT’s extract, right? 😉
