Build your yoga library

loyIf you don’t have a guru, books are an important source of learning assisting all branches of yoga, especially the yoga of knowledge and wisdom.

For any student, Light on yoga is essential to understand asana and the Yoga Sutras by Maharishi Sadashiva Ishaya gives a more practical guide to Patanjali than most authors.

Principal Reference Books: 

Light on Yoga by BKS Iyengar.
This is the principal class textbook for yoga asana.

Enlightenment The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Enlightenment: Yoga Sutras of Patanjali - New Translation and Commentaryby Maharishi Sadashiva Ishaya and MSI

    Hey there, great books and Light on Yoga remains a classic that no aspiring yogi can do without and Autobiography of a Yogi is one of the best inspirational reads ever.
