October 7, 2016

The Science Behind Yoga

September 30, 2016

If you have half an hour to spare I highly recommend this document on the scientific research behind the benefits of Yoga. No esoteric talk in sight so this is very suitable for the critical minds out there. The YouTube link belos is for the trailer, watch the whole thing here.
