Yoga and Sex Scandals

William J. Broad, who has a new book out about yoga, has an eye-catching article today in the NY Times:
Yoga and Sex Scandals: No Surprise Here
The springboard is a current scandal involving some big-time yoga teacher named John Friend, who seems to have gotten too friendly with female acolytes.

Broad explains all this by making the extraordinary claim that yoga "began as a sex cult", which seems to be an over-reaching stretch of the truth.

Broad fans the flames
with wild claims
which may work as hooks
to sell books.
