Religious studies doctoral student Philip Deslippe traces the history of yoga in America, which has evolved from sitting in lectures to the stretching and breathing practice we are familiar with today. What's your favorite yoga pose, Gauchos?
Were you taking a yoga class a hundred or so years ago, you wouldn’t have brought a mat to class. Nor would you have worn stretchy yoga pants, and it’s highly unlikely you’d have ended a session on your back, eyes closed and concentrating on your breathing. In fact, all the down-dogging, back-bending, tree-standing and warrior posing common today wasn’t even part of the practice in yoga of the early 20th century.

Are you an overthinker? UCSB researchers discover that overthinking may significantly hinder people's ability to master simple skills.
Why are some people able to master a new skill quickly while others require extra time or practice? That was the question posed by UC Santa Barbara’s Scott Grafton and colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins University. To find the answer, the team designed a study that measured the connections between different brain regions while participants learned to play a simple game.
