Many have more than one. If you have been practicing yoga for a few years or more, perhaps you can relate to this. A shift in perspective, a new way of looking at things or a different way of practicing can alter your experience on your yoga mat and in your life, enough that you feel somewhat different – more inspired, lighter… dare I say enlightened? You don’t feel the need to better understand your psyche and belief system You don’t like inner exploration You don’t care about being more mindful All of the yoga books below have that potential. Each one grabs you in a different way and teaches you something new about yourself, about yoga and about life. We hope that this guide will help you choose the book that is ideal for you at this moment, or will help you choose the perfect book for a friend, colleague or family member who also loves yoga. Contact AndyG 1 year ago Programs Programs You like to learn about yourself 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. You wouldn’t find a large pocket book to be useful Blog You like suggestions for yoga sessions, split into short and long options You want beautiful, glossy, color photos You don’t like inner exploration You don’t mind simple, black and white photos You prefer a book that goes into more depth with philosophy and practice Peak Pose Challenges Click here to purchase Light on Yoga from Amazon You would like to have a yoga reference book that is easy to carry around You like to learn about yoga philosophy and how they apply to practice You are a yoga teacher looking to teach more than just the poses Anodea Judith has a knack for writing about chakras and psychology in plain language that anyone can understand. Eastern Body, Western Mind is no exception – it’s wonderfully written and provides countless thoughtful moments and epiphanies. It is not just a book to read, it is a ‘workbook’ for healing the soul’s wounds that have accumulated over a lifetime and an attempt to teach you how to live in a healthier, more balanced and self-loving way. You enjoy reading about Buddhist philosophy Testimonials 12 Essential Yoga Books to Inspire You and Your Yoga Practice You would benefit from a relatable explanation of the limbs of yoga You don’t want to read about buddhist philosophy Meditations You are not interested in applications of yoga philosophy Understanding functional anatomy has the potential of transforming not only your practice, but your relationship to your body. This is by far the most impressive guide to functional anatomy and yoga that I have seen to date. David's unique approach makes learning about anatomy easy for anyone, while completely satisfying anatomy geeks who love to learn all they can about muscles and bones. The manual begins with basic principles of functional anatomy, then helps you understand how they work within many of the yoga asanas.  David's descriptions allow you to feel what he’s saying in your own body. There is so much to learn from this book that it could very well be your go-to yoga anatomy reference manual for years to come. × Latest Blog Posts You like to learn about yoga philosophy and how they apply to practice Beginners You would benefit from a step-by-step guide to move into each pose A Path with Heart: A Guide Through the Perils and Promises of Spiritual Life with Jack Kornfield Click here to purchase The Yoga Bible from Amazon You don’t want a book that focusses mostly on practical meditation techniques Click here to purchase Insight Yoga from Amazon
