Yoga reputedly improves our physical and mental health and empowers us to become more productive at work, more caring in relationships, and more responsible contributors to society and inhabitants on this planet. If yoga does accomplish all that—and most practitioners swear it’s true—how exactly does it do it? Yoga teacher Eddie Stern and Deepak Chopra, MD, discuss how the human body and mind function, how we are built and wired, and how what we do can impact those wirings.
This program marks the launch of Eddie Stern’s One Simple Thing, which includes a foreword by Deepak Chopra.
A world-renowned pioneer in integrative medicine and personal transformation, Deepak Chopra, MD, FACP, is the founder of the Chopra Foundation and the cofounder of Jiyo.com and the Chopra Center for Wellbeing. TIME magazine has described Dr. Chopra as “One of the top 100 heroes and icons of the century.” Dr. Chopra is Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology and Metabolism, a Fellow of the American College of Physicians, and Clinical Professor in Medicine at the University of California, San Diego.

His latest book, The Healing Self, with co-author Dr. Rudolph E. Tanzi, was released January 30, 2018. This is his fourth on-stage appearance at the Rubin. The WorldPost and Huffington Post global internet survey ranked Chopra “#17 influential thinker in the world and #1 in Medicine.”
