Get access to bonus, subscriber-only videos This classic yoga manual by BKS Iyengar is a comprehensive and detailed book on yoga philosophy, bandhas, kriyas, pranayama and a step-by-step guide for each asana. Written by someone who many consider to be a yoga master, it has an ancient feel to it, as though the concepts have been carried through from yoga's origins. The images are even slightly grainy. The poses progress through the book from beginner to advanced and finish with yoga courses and curative asanas for various diseases. Musicians You don’t like to read daily quotes or short stories You want to learn about being more sensitive when doing yoga This book is a personal reflection on the life and philosophy of one of the most talented teachers of our time. Arlene Bjork had a way of inspiring and guiding her students to explore the deeper truths and aspects of yoga, while offering true insight into how to incorporate yoga in all aspects of your life and how a regular practice will enhance your experience of living. If you are a teacher, you will learn to make a more profound connection with your students, one that will manifest both on and off the mat. In addition, it offers a personable interpretation of all the aspects of yoga philosophy that often seem inaccessible to most practitioners. You don’t want to read about buddhist philosophy Namaste! Bloopers and Outtakes Yoga Mind, Body & Spirit - A Return to Wholeness by Donna Farhi You love learning about anatomy Yoga: The Spirit and Practice of Moving Through Stillness by Erich Schiffmann You are looking for hatha, restorative or vinyasa yoga sequences Meditations from the Mat: Daily Reflections on the Path of Yoga by Rolf Gates × Eastern Body Western Mind by Anodea Judith You value a book that is written by someone who is considered a master You like books with black and white illustrations and photos Bloopers and Outtakes You like suggestions for yoga sessions, split into short and long options You are a yoga teacher looking to teach more than just the poses You would benefit from a relatable explanation of the limbs of yoga Shoulder Strength and Stability H. David Coulter's Anatomy of Hatha Yoga is possibly the most comprehensive yoga anatomy book that exists. It reads, at times, like an anatomy or physiology text book, moving through an impressive detailed analysis of movement and posture, breathing and abdominopelvic exercises before taking that same approach to analyze standing poses, backbending poses, forward bending postures, twisting postures, headstand, shoulderstand and finishing with relaxation and meditation. It's a thick book (almost 600 pages) and extremely dense with information, which is guaranteed to satisfy the most dedicated anatomy nerd. Although it definitely wouldn't be considered an easy read, it is, for the most part, surprisingly accessible for the average person.
