Yoga

Can anybody point me to a thread or article skeptically analyzing Yoga ? Yoga and its fraudulent claims have been mentioned here and there in Nirmukta but I can not find any complete analysis containing all the pros and cons of Yoga. I am particularly interested in medical testings of the effectiveness of Yoga and the validity of the claim that yoga bears something unique compared to any other physical activity which makes it suitable for prescribing as a cure to any disease, specially for stress removal.

Also, any similar skeptical analysis of the "good-looking-kriya" by Mr Mr Ravishankar will really make me happy ! W00t
