HELL-BENT explores a world at the extremes of American yoga. Benjamin Lorr walked into his first yoga studio on a whim and quickly found the yoga reinventing his life. 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 was just the beginning. The culmination of two years of research, featuring hundreds of interviews with yogis, scientists, doctors, and scholars, looking at the science behind a controversial practice. It is a book that will not only challenge your conception of yoga, but will change the way you view the fragile, inspirational limits of the human body itself.
