Yoga Reading List – My Favorite Yoga Books

Yoga Book List

Today I thought I would share with you a list of some of my favorite yoga books.  This list is not complete by any means, and I hope that if you have any books that should be added to this list, you will post them as a comment at the end.

Happy reading.

Shalom & Namaste,
Diana Bonyhadi

  1. I like your list of books! I’ve read quite a few of the same ones.

    Do you have a favorite translation of the Yoga Sutras? I really like the simplicity of T.K.V. Desikachar’s in The Heart of Yoga. Then I also refer to Inside the Yoga Sutras by Rev. Jaganath Carrera if I need more detail.

    Do you have any favorite yoga novels or memoirs? I just read Poser, My Life in 23 Poses and now there’s a book group that’s recently started through Goodreads. It would be nice to meet you there! Thanks again for your list.
