The Psychophysical Lab: Yoga Practice and the Mind-Body Problem
By Prof. Ohad Nachtomy & Dr. Eyal Shifroni.
The book offers a comprehensive framework – both practical and theoretical – for investigating and developing our human nature as psychophysical unities. Chapter 1 establishes a practical framework, the ‘psychophysical lab’, as a means of observing, studying, and developing the relations between mental and physical aspects of human nature through yoga practice (see Exploration-1 from the book); Chapter 2 shows how yoga practice can foster mutual development of our mental and physical faculties. Chapter 3 offers a philosophical and historical analysis of the mind–body problem – its origin, development, and possible solution. In Chapter 4, the authors recommend practice sequences with marked mental benefits, such as confidence, balance, and optimism.
