Books & Suggested Reading

When we started talking about the content of this section, the answers of what to include in our recommended reading list were plentiful. Our personal libraries, the bookstore at the studio and our secret stash of back office books provide each of us with new thoughts on our favorite topics, inspiring poems and really great technical disucssions of breathing, asana, mediation and yoga nidra.

We’ve included our top picks by subject mater, but encourage you to add your favorites to the list and check back from time to time to see what we’ve newly discovered.
