It offers an in-depth understanding of the effects of Yoga on the physical level and also explores the effects of Yoga on the energetic level and psycho-emotional level. I believe this is one of the best reads on Yoga for those wanting to understand why Yoga “works”. Can be read on line at www.yinsights.com. A must read for teachers.

  • Upanishads – translation by Eknath Easwaran – The Upanishads will be enjoyed by those who enjoy a poetic exploration of scripture. The Upanishads constitute the core teachings of Vedanta. Easwaran offers a highly assessable translation without losing the poetic nature of these texts.
  • The End of Your World – Adayashanti- What happens when realize/experience that “reality” is something beyond what we perceive through every day consciousness? In this book Adaya explores the gifts and challenges that are the aftermath of awakening (whether it was a momentary glimpse of totality or abiding/lasting awakening).

  • Anatomy of Movement and Anatomy of Movement Exercises – Blandine Calais-Germain – These are complementary texts and are a great resource for Yoga teachers and students wanting to understand the function of movement at an anatomical level.
  • A Path with Heart – Jack Kornfield. This is a beautiful book based on Buddhist philosophy. It offers an ideas for integrating spirituality into our daily lives. Living compassionately and mindfully.
  • Peace is Every Step – Thich Nhat Hanh. I often think of this book as simply profound. It is a rich yet subtle exposure to Buddhist philosophy which exposes you to ideas about how everything is interrelated. It offers ideas on how to bring mindfulness/presence into moment to moment living. I love this little book.
