The Quackometer knows

My Internet research on Yoga and quackery led me to the Yoga Journal. While the journal may not be an authoritative source on Yoga it seems to be a pretty good reflection of its popular promotions and claims. So I decided to run it through the Quackometer, which gave it a rating of 9 canards (out of a possible 10) and this description:

This web site has more quackery than my village pond. It is throwing in some scientific jargon and may be doing this to give an appearance of knowledgablity. It shows no sceptical awareness and so should be treated with a suspicious mind. It also looks like this site is trying to sell stuff. Buyer Beware!
