My Favorite Yoga Books

Over the years I have read many great books on yoga.  There is many different ways to approach the subject and practice of yoga.  Here is a list of a few books that I have enjoyed.  The first books listed are the beginner guides and the ending are higher level guides that are more progressive in technique, language or physical intensity. 

For inspiration and detailed understanding of Yoga read the books by Iyengar.  He has a way of giving you the words that are easily understood but yet authentic.  A G Mohen is another one that has a great way of speaking the wisdom of Yoga.  Enjoy your reading and remember to practice what you read in order to better understand the truth from experiencing the knowledge.
