ADDITIONAL READING


If you're inspired to continue your Yoga education, here are a few good places to start.

Traditional Yoga Texts & Commentary

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali by Swami Satchidananda

A very thorough but accessible guide to Yoga Sutra.

Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali by BKS Iyengar

Patanjali as seen through the eyes of one of the foremost Hatha Yogis of the modern era.

Hatha Yoga Pradipika by Swami Muktibodhananda

Bihar School of Yoga edition of HYP. Clear and concise vision of Hatha Yoga.

Siva Samhita by James Mallinson

Mallinson is a contemporary Yogic scholar who does a good job of taking the difficult ideas in SS and presenting them in intelligible English. Siva Samhita can be a bit harder to find

than other texts. Watch out for editions by Sri Chandra Vasu - they can be a bit unreliable

Gheranda Samhita by M. L. Gharote

Kaivalyadhama Institute translation is the best we've found so far. Also includes photos of most techniques.

Modern Yoga Scholarship

Hatha Yoga by Theos Bernard

If you only choose one book to read about becoming a Hatha Yogi, this should be it. Bernard went to India and Tibet in the 1930s, and studied one of the only known living systems of Hatha Yoga. His form, attitude, and achievements in Hatha Yoga are all excellent. This can be a hard book to track down, but trust us, it's worth it.

Yoga: Immortality and Freedom by Mircea Eliade

Eliade is perhaps the 20th century's foremost scholar of spiritual and esoteric disciplines. This treatise on Yoga goes far beyond Hatha Yoga, but it is an essential read for anyone looking to firmly ground their understanding of Hatha Yoga in the rich context of traditional Yoga and Tantra.

The Yoga Tradition by Georg Feurstein

Feurstein is one of the best Yoga scholars around today. He writes clearly and in a fashion that's easy to understand for the layperson. This is a big book! Kind of like a desk reference, or coffee table piece - but jam-packed with great information. Anything you find on Yoga by Feurstein is worth looking at.
