After the ‘How Yoga Can Wreck Your Body’ debacle we cut author William J. Broad a break. Heck it wasn’t his fault the New York Times went for the shock value, and some reviews of his book actually made it sound worth reading. But this latest article on yoga and sex scandals, basically Broad’s response to the latest John Friend/Anusaragate, confirms that WJB is just as annoying in his delivery about sexifying yoga as he is about it wrecking your body. In fact, it’s idiotic.

With willing and able teacher Marco Rojas and science from William J. Broad’s new book The Science of Yoga: The Risks and the Rewards Dan Harris and the ABC News team get down to business.

Yoga, meet Fame. Yoga Fame, meet your new student Ben Dover! Newsweek has an article entitled “Bow Down To the Yoga Teacher” about prostrating not to the divine, or self, but to the magical all-powerful guru leading the class, on a pedestal, real or metaphorical. These stories of bowing down to a revered, or inspiring, [...]
As if Valentine’s Day weren’t enough to get you and your honey bound up together in some sort of twisted lotus posture, it’s being reported that yoga can actually aid in your fertility. Score! Well, we already know it helps the sex drive. Really though, infertility can actually be a very serious matter to a [...]
Sex and Spirituality: Yoga’s Potent Cocktail for Commercialized Success
Even more commentary on the commercialization of yoga and nudie booties in ads, with a dash of spiritual enterprising.
