A lead science writer for The New York Times—and lifelong yoga practitioner—examines centuries of history and research to scrutinize the claims made about yoga for health, fitness, emotional wellbeing, sex, weight loss, healing, and creativity. He reveals what is real and what is illusory, in the process exposing moves that can harm or even kill. A New York Times bestseller. The Science of Yoga draws on more than a century of painstaking research to present the first impartial evaluation of a practice thousands of years old. It celebrates what’s real and shows what’s illusory, describes what’s uplifting and beneficial and what’s flaky and dangerous—and why. Broad unveils a burgeoning global industry that attracts not only curious scientists but true believers and charismatic hustlers. He shatters myths, lays out unexpected benefits, and offers a compelling vision of how the ancient practice can be improved.

Yoga Sequencing: Designing Transformative Yoga Classes presents the essential principles and methods for planning and sequencing yoga classes. Addressing one of the most popular topics in the yoga profession, this book offers sixty-seven model sequences of yoga poses (asanas) that cover the broad range of yoga student experience, including multiple sequences for beginning, intermediate, and advanced students; yoga for kids, teens, women across the life cycle, and seniors; classes to relieve depression and anxiety; and sequences for each of the major chakras and ayurvedic constitutions. Each sequence provides guidance for teaching the different breathing (pranayama) and meditation techniques that give yoga its transformative power. Enhanced with over 2,000 instructional photos and an elaborate guide to the constituent elements of over 150 yoga asanas, the book draws equally from ancient yoga philosophy and contemporary insights into functional anatomy, biomechanics, and kinesiology. The nuanced interrelationships among asanas within and between the seven asana families are explored and the anatomy of opening and stabilizing each pose is explained for sequences designed around specific needs and intentions. A comprehensive appendix includes a glossary of yoga-related terms, an alphabetical asana index with thumbnail photographs of each asana, a class planning worksheet, representative sequences from several popular styles of hatha yoga, and a list of resources for further exploring sequencing and the larger practice of teaching yoga.

Play It Forward details the remarkable business journey of Joan Barnes, from founding and leading Gymboree to the brink of its prosperous IPO, to the personal crisis that forced her to step down as CEO, to her successful second act as the founder of an innovative yoga business. The Joan Barnes story is one of female entrepreneurial success. Barnes built an innovative, billion-dollar household brand starting with $3,000 and working in a church basement. The book reveals how she grew her company through a groundbreaking franchise-model expansion, how her operational strategy focused on creating business opportunities for women, and how Gymboree eventually became a powerful international business network, one that blazed the trail for a new industry: activity-based classes for pre-preschool children. But this dramatic entrepreneurial memoir is also a cautionary tale and a story of redemption. When the Gymboree initial public offering yielded a stock price boost of 58 percent on the first day of trading, Barnes was nowhere near Wall Street. She had stepped down from the company two years earlier because the stress of building the business fueled a deep-seated eating disorder that threatened to destroy everything she worked so hard to build. Through the course of this extraordinary story, Barnes overcomes great obstacles, both personal and professional. The courage she used to confront her disorder provides readers with a model for overcoming their own demons to achieve a sense of worth, inclusion, and hope. Her ability to later resume her business career on healthier terms and to find a different dimension of success is an inspiring example of how midcareer women can triumph through reinvention. Published to coincide with Gymboree's 40th anniversary, Play It Forward is a memoir that offers readers a refreshing perspective on the ongoing national conversation about work-life balance, from a woman who built her business with balance at its heart. The stories of successful women in business are perennially underreported. As women increase their numbers and influence in the business world--including in executive suites--there is more need than ever for the stories of role models who, like Barnes, understand the complexity and diversity of women's paths to success.
