In the spirit of "Born to Run" and "Word Freak, " an eye-opening look at the world of extreme yoga and a tale of personal transformation
Yoga is practiced by 20 million Americans and has grown into a $6 billion industry. Tales abound of the benefits that come from stretching your limbs--and your sense of self--to the limit. Author Benjamin Lorr began as a casual yogi, but he quickly witnessed a transformation of body, mood, and energy. He was studying Bikram Yoga (or "hot yoga"), when a run-in with a master and competitive yoga champion led him into an obsessive subculture--a group of yogis for whom eight hours of practice a day in 110 degree heat were just the start.
So begins a journey into the strange, amazing world of competitive yoga. Populated by athletic prodigies, wide-eyed celebrities, and predatory hucksters, it's a nation-spanning trip--from the jam-packed studios of New York to the athletic performance labs of the University of Oregon to the stage at the National Yoga Asana Championship, where Lorr competes for glory.
The culmination of two years of research, featuring hundreds of interviews with yogis, scientists, doctors, and scholars, "Hell-bent "will change the way you look at yoga.
