Vous trouverez de nombreuses publications et informations tant sur le Yoga que sur les neurosciences sur internet. Attention toutefois internet est le lieu de toutes les arnaques et manipulations ainsi que des fakes…..


Neuronal Man: The Biology of Mind – Jean Pierre Changeux – Princeton Science Library – 1997 Originally published in 1983, the scientific content of the book is rather out of date, but the fact that Princeton has republished this book proves its interest as a look at the very birth of the neurosciences. Written in a way that anyone can enjoy, it’s well worth a read.

The Brain that Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph for the Frontiers of Brain Science – Norman Doidge – Penguin Books – 2008 A look at neuroplasticity and the potential of our brains

The Instinct to Heal: Curing Depression, Anxiety and Stress without Drugs and without Talk Therapy – David Servan-Schreiber – Rodale Books – 2005 A true bible for anyone who doesn’t believe in psychotropic drugs and other neurorubbish!!! Eminently readable, easy to put into practice and absolutely fascinating.


Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness and Spiritual Well-Being – Rudolph E. Tanzi Ph.D and Deepak Chopra M.D – Harmony – 2013

Included here because this is the bibliography page, but this book is actually the perfect example of what not to read. The perfect blend of pseudoscientific gobbledygook, full of inaccuracies and contradictions wrapped in a cloak of imagined spirituality. Borrow it from the library but don’t waste your money on buying it!

Light on Yoga: Yoga Dipika: The Bible of Modern Yoga – B.K.S. Iyengar – Schocken – revised edition 1995In my opinion the bible of the yogi

Light on Pranayama: The Definite Guide to the Art of Breathing – B.K.S. Iyengar – Harper Collins – 2013 Respiration for yoga explained in simple terms.

Yoga: A Gem for Women – Geeta S. Iyengar – Allied Publishers – 2019 Putting the accent on yoga for woman and including postures suitable for use during pregnancy but a book that is also a gem for men wishing to do yoga.

Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body’s Most Underrated Organ – Giulia Enders – Greystone Books – 2018 It took 3 years for an edition to appear in English, but it immediately flew onto the New York Times Bestseller list. An eye-opener to the role of the ‘brain’ in our gut.

The Order of Time – Carlo Rovelli – Riverhead Books – 2019 Originally published in Italian, this book is for all those who wish to understand that … we understand almost nothing. For when you have the time!

Brilliant Green: The Surprising History and Science of Plant Intelligence -Stefano Mancuso, Alessandra Viola et al. – Island Press – 2018 Italian scientists again to the fore as they explore the uselessness and toxicity of man to plant life, but an essential message for the survival of mankind.

L’odyssée des genes – Evelyne Heyer – Flammarion – 2020 Unfortunately for you this book does not yet appear to exist in an English edition, but if you read the article posted at https://yogaetneurosciences.com/?p=1905 you will get an idea as to why I find this a fascinating read.

You will of course find a wealth of material regarding yoga and the neurosciences on the Internet. Just remember to keep an open and wary mind, as the web is also a platform for erroneous information and scams of all kinds.
