The Psychophysical Lab: Yoga Practice and the Mind-Body Problem

O. Nachtomy, E Shifroni

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The book 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 (chapter 1); it attempts to show how yoga practice can foster a mutual development of our mental and physical faculties (in chapter 2); and offers a philosophical and historical analysis of the mind-body problem—its origin, development, and possible solution (in chapter 3); The final chapter adds practice sequences with marked mental benefits, such as confidence, balance, and optimism. The book is unique in offering a comprehensive framework – both practical and theoretical – to investigate and develop our human nature as a psychophysical unity
