William J. Broad’s new book, The Science of Yoga, reached a level of infamy in the yoga community long before its release. An excerpt in the New York Times titled “How Yoga Can Wreck Your Body” made a big splash in the yoga community and brought the subject of injuries to the forefront of the yoga conversation.
While yoga injuries continue to be the focus of the discussion around the book, there is much more to it. In this exclusive video interview, we talk about how Broad felt about the response and what he learned in the process of researching the book.
A senior writer for the New York Times, William J. Broad is an award-winning science journalist whose previous research includes germs, the explosion of the Challenger space shuttle and the global threat of nuclear arms.
