Yoga Reading

Yoga Books!

I love to read.  In fact, I wish I had more time to read (and more time to blog)!!  I always have a pile of books on my desk from the library.  The only books I purchase are my yoga books because they are books I refer back to time and time again! So, some people collect designer wear scarves, others antique coins, dolls, stamps, postcards etc.  Me?  I collect yoga books!

Following is a list of some amazing books on YOGA or yoga related!  If you go through this list and see that I have not included a yoga book that is special to you, please comment below so that my readers and I can be more complete in our reading!  Here’s to 20 years of yoga reading…
