SCARSDALE, N.Y. Author William J. Broad, senior science writer at The New York Times and lifelong yoga practitioner, will discuss his new book, "The Science of Yoga: The Risks and Rewards" at 1 p.m. Sunday, March 4, at the JCC Mid-Westchester, 999 Wilmot Road. A question and answer period and book signing will follow the discussion. This event is free and open to the public.
Broad interviewed yogis and yoga instructors, along with sports scientists, medical doctors, physical therapists, sex researchers, physiologists, neuroscientists and immunologists. The book purports to "show for the first time what is uplifting and beneficial and what is delusional and dangerous," according to a press release.
