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.

book2Light On Life
By B.K.S. Iyengar

If you’d like to look through the lens of yoga philosophy on your life, this is a beautiful perspective. Iyengar breaks the book down into the Kosas (the five layers of being), with an incredible amount of insight. How we relate to our body, mind, spirituality, nature, and our loved ones is thoughtfully considered in each chapter. You could read this book several
times and learn something new and wise each time.
