Many students have asked what books, websites, podcasts, websites, etc I recommend to supplement their yoga classes with me. With many new ones coming out each day, it is impossible to keep up with it all! But here are some of my favorites (not ranked in any particular order) for your home practice.


  1. Light on Yoga by BKS Iyengar
    An absolute must for the serious student. The most comprehensive, detailed, insightful and complete yoga book I've seen. Wonderful for those looking for instruction on advanced postures. Also includes a 275 week program for yoga practice. It's the "bible" of all yoga books.
  2. Yoga:The Path to Holistic Health by BKS Iyengar
    Not as in-depth as Light on Yoga, but colorful illustrations and clear instructions makes this a good choice for those newer to yoga. Has a wonderful section on gentle and restorative yoga.
  3. Ashtanga Yoga: The Practice Manual by David Swenson
    Covers all asana in sequence of the Primary Series and Intermediate Series. Shows the poses and entry level poses as alternates. Great for all levels and easy to use with spiral binding.
  4. Yoga Mind and Body by the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center
    Another great, colorful book with photos on how to get into an asana and variations off it. Touches on other aspects of yoga and includes recipes for healthy eating.
  5. Insight Yoga by Sarah Powers
    Yin Yoga....a must for these hectic lifestyles we lead
  6. Yoga Anatomy by Leslie Kaminoff
    With clear, detailed anatomical drawings of most of the common asanas, you can get a sense of what is going on inside the body in each posture.


  1. A very comphensive site and one I refer to the most. So much information available and video podcasts to follow. Covers all aspects of yoga, not just asana/poses. Subscribe to their newsletter.
  2. A wonderful blog by Diane Cesa and covers a variety of topics and offers helpful tips, suggestions and things to ponder.
  3. Free daily yoga classes that you can watch and practice.
