Books

Heart of Yoga

This book is incredibly special to me, it was the first one that I ever bought after it was recommended by my class teacher. Upon reading I began to realise there was much more to Yoga than the postures and it tweaked my curiosity to begin to explore further…..it could do the same for you….enjoy.

Krishnamacharya

Having begun my journey into Yoga and developing a regular home practice I wanted to know more about yoga’s roots and history. This book is a great biography and will be of great interest to all those that are interested in knowing the source of their tradition and practice.

Liberating Isolation

This is a very accessible translation and commentary on the Yoga Sutras, Frans Moors the author was a student of TKV Desikachar the son of Krishnamacharya who described Frans as a yogasadhaka, this glowing testimony made it a must have for me the traditional lineage is always something I’m drawn too.

Yoga for Body, Breath and Mind

Again I was drawn to this book as my journey with yoga continued and I became interested in teaching and therapy as a possible development. Mohan the author studied with Krishnamacharya so again I respected the lineage. I particular drawn to its focus on person centred therapy and how the sutras can become part of our every day practice.

Light on Yoga

No Yoga book collection would be complete without a copy of this book considered to be `The Bible of Modern Yoga`, Iyengar has been described as the world’s foremost Yoga Teacher. The photographs, over 600 of them are most impressive.
