The following are a list of books I’ve found helpful and thought provoking. Many of which are suggested texts for teacher trainees, others are helpful tools for starting a home practice, understanding your anatomy in asana, and among my favorites are the philosophical texts. What makes up a well-rounded practice is the ability to break down the layers (mind, body, spiritual) and explore each one with time, respect, and practice. Yoga is a lifelong practice, so taking time to digest the valuable insights and being patient in your process is key. Patience and discipline allows you to integrate the practice into your daily life, where the most beneficial changes occur.

Even through text, his teaching voice is incredibly inspiring for students interested in deepening their knowledge of yoga anatomy.
