books for yoga teachers

May 4, 2020



Hello my sweet friends, new and old! ✨ I hope you are all healthy and safe … I was inspired by a question I received for a yoga teacher Q+A video I just did for my YouTube channel to share a list of some of my favorite books for yoga teachers!

Truth be told I am a total book lover, and there truly are so so so many wonderful books for yoga teachers out there, many of which are not on this list! But, in an effort to get you going ASAP (since we’ve got some extra time right now .) I decided to just share some of my favorite books for yoga teachers that are on my book shelf here at home…. but, I’m thinking it might be fun to do a follow up blog post to this one and share a more extensive well organized list! Let me know if you’d like that . Also, if you haven’t already make sure you check out my other post on Yoga Books there are a few repeats but some others books on that list that are a must read!

Before I get into this list I do want to say that while I’ve titled this post Books for Yoga Teachers, every single one of these books are fabulous reads for ANYONE interested in deepening their understanding of yoga! ✨
