[Ashtanga Yoga: The Practice Manual][Swenson, David][Hardcover]
Ashtanga Yoga Productions, 2000
This book is fantastic. It's in-depth, it shows all sorts of modifications for every posture, and it's clear and easy to understand. I use it to do home practice, but I also attend a weekly yoga class. Between the two, I have gained a lot of knowledge, an incredible amount of flexibility, and a lot of strength.
Yogananth Andiappan - Yoga From the Heart
International Yoga Academy Limited.
Beauty and Inspiration
Of all the yoga books I own this is by far THE most inspirational. Notably, the poses my be unattainable to the degree presented in these glorious pages to anyone who hasn't spent a lifetime in practice but the example of the capabilities of the human body and spirit presented it inspirational. The mood of the pages, the quality of the images and the selection of paper used in this tome offer an ...
The Yoga Handbook, An Inspirational Reference for Teaching and Home Practice
Teaching Yoga: The Big Picture
This book is a great overview for yoga teachers, especially those just getting started -- from ethics to class sequencing, basic (70) poses to know, 120 common ailments and recommended practices & contraindications, muscles you need to know, and business considerations (how to charge, how to market, & how to protect yourself).

Ashtanga yoga: The practice manual
Ashtanga Yoga Productions, 2000
Excellent book for the Ashtanga Student
This book is an excellent companion to any Ashtanga practice. Clearly defines the poses, easy to follow and very informative. Has even helped when I attend class, when class has moved quickly I know what the pose is from recalling the descriptions and photos in the book. Love it!

Aardvark Global Publishing
Wow! How inspiring! These are exactly what I need to refine my own practice..... Finally the poses are depicted in a way I can truly reference. Also make a good gift....gave some to a few friends interested in yoga.
Ashtanga Yoga : Practice and Philosophy
Gem of a book
there are books that you read and other you treasure. This one is definitely in the latter category. Every time I read it, I get 100% of the "1% theory" aspect of my practice. This book has it all - the philosophy, the anatomy and of course, the practice. Thank you for a wonderful gift that will last a lifetime
Ashtanga Flash Cards-Primary Series- By Gwen Neidlinger Photographs by Jasper Johal (Yoga Cards)
Aardvark Global Publishing
Yoga Flash Cards
These cards are very well designed. Excellent photos of each pose (the primary Ashtanga series) appear on one side; the Sanskrit names (full name + a breakdown of each part) appear on the other side. The cards are numbered so that you can have them in sequence or shuffle them as you are quizzing yourself. There is also a ring and holed in the corner so that you can keep the cards conveniently ...
Ashtanga Yoga : The Definitive Step-by-Step Guide to Dynamic Yoga
Three Rivers Press
This book is a great compliment to the David Swenson practice manual, or great on it's own. It has a lot more detail than David's book, with things to watch for in each pose, and also defines what you need to be working towards. The thing that I love most about it is that it has photos of each part of the vinyasa after each pose so that you can visually see exactly what you should be doing, ...
Only Way Out Is In: A Modern Day Yogi's Commentary on the Synergy of Ashtanga Yoga, Ayurveda, and Tantra
Anthony Prem Carlisi
Dream Weavers International
GENUINE LOOK AT ASHTANGA, AYURVEDA, AND TANTRA
I have been practicing Ashtanga yoga for over 10 years and have many different books about yoga, ayurveda, and tantra. This one in particular is special, because of the way Carlisi honestly reveals himself to the reader and weaves his personal experience throughout. I was surprised to discover a lot of information about these practices that no one else talks about. He makes his ...

Ashtanga Yoga (B&N): The Complete Mind and Body Workout
I found this one to be extremely informative & practical and thankfully free from the cliched vagueness of some other books I have read. It contains very clear photos and detailed instructions for each pose/sequence along with the benefits of each pose. The introduction talks about the origins of yoga, the 8 limbs, etc and basically how to get the best out of your practice (touching on routine, ...
Ashtanga Yoga for Women: Invigorating Mind, Body, and Spirit with Power Yoga
Finally, a Yoga title book specifically for female practicer
I just began to practice Ashtanga yoga and there are so many Yoga related books out there, but none of them, until this one, is specifically for female practicers. It explains in detail what female Ashtanga Yoga practicers need mind during different stage of life - pregnancy, menstrual period, etc, - to adjust practice accordingly. It's very helpful for female Ashtanga yoga practicers in ...
Ashtanga Yoga: Build Strength, Flexibility and Serenity with this Ancient Physical Art
A book for the brand new yoga beginners - breath by breath
This is an excellent book, its key feature is the squence of every movement during your yoga practice and photoed specifically breath-by-breath, not just step-by-step. It's very helpful for new ashtanga yoga practicers. What lacks in this book is it only provided part of primary series. It will be excellent if the complete primary series and finish series can be included.
Ashtanga Yoga As It IS (Revised Third Edition)
The Yoga Temple
Summary and visual Ashtanga sequences are great
Wonderful summary relating ones practice with the overall yogic path, the photographic breakdown of Ashtanga sequences is clear and well done. While the photos are small, large photos would make for a large book... this size is very portable and light which is great especially if you find the most difficult part of practicing Ashtanga (as taught by Pattabhi Jois)to be remembering which pose ...
Ashtanga Yoga Primer
Baba Hari Dass
Sri Rama Pub
Ashtanga Yoga Primer
The Yoga Primer has served as an inspiration and light to my yoga practice for the past 20 years. It is a rare and precious offering from a true yoga master that goes to the pure heart of the essence of the 8 limbed path. As a shining example of karma yoga, all proceeds from the sale of this book (and all books by Baba Hari Dass) go to support an orphanage in India.This gem of a book offers ...
A Series Of Lessons In Raja Yoga
Great tools for the development of mind
I found this book years ago by an accident, in an antiquity store in Zagreb. More than just worthy of the five stars- I found the lessons extremely useful. However, I would advise any beginner to be careful with the "trap door" and similar techniques, since they can easily lead one to putting too many things into the subconscious realm, instead of the opposite. Things like noticing the details on ...
