We love a good book. Especially a book that allows us to delve further into our practice whether it be physically, mentally or spiritually. Today we are blessed with extensive knowledge and information about all things in life, through the internet, but there is something very unique about having a book that can always be referred back to. Whether we need it for curiosity or because our practice needs some guidance. As well as disconnecting from our digital livestyles, is always a good thing for our mind and soul.
Which is why we want to share 6 of our favorite yoga books with you today! These books range from the mental, spiritual and mindfullness aspect of yoga, to the physical aspect of yoga. These books, we believe, are perfect to explore further into yoga and our bodies.
1. Light on Yoga

"The definitive work by B.K.S. Iyengar, the world's most respected yoga teacher. B.K.S. Iyengar has devoted his life to the practice and study of yoga. It was B.K.S. Iyengar's unique teaching style, bringing precision and clarity to the practice, as well as a mindset of 'yoga for all', which has made it into the worldwide phenomenon it is today.

4. Living Your Yoga: Finding the Spiritual in Everyday Life
Judith Hanson Lasater
"If you think that you have to retreat to a cave in the Himalayas to find the enlightenment that yoga promises, think again. In this second edition of Living Your Yoga, Judith Hanson Lasater stretches the meaning of yoga beyond its familiar poses and breathing techniques to include the events of daily life—all of them—as ways to practice."
