My favourite books

Someone asked me for a list of my favourite yoga books… here are a few that have made an impact on me.

Eat, Pray, Love by Liz Gilbert. Okay, it had to make the list. Let’s just get it out of the way from the get-go. I liked listening to the the audio book read by Liz herself.

Overcoming Trauma Through Yoga by Emmerson and Hopper. I lend this book out all the time. It can be a game-changer, eye-opener and a huge validation.

Ayurveda: The Science of Self-Healing by Vasant Lad. Again, I lend this one out a fair bit. Ayurveda seemed unbelievable when I first heard about it. But then I noticed that health care professionals would come to the same conclusions as Ayurveda through observation of their patients. Now I’m hooked. Like yoga, it is a way of life.

Finding God in the Waves by Mike McHargue. I just listened to this a couple of weeks ago. I love Science Mike, his story and his compassionate view of humans.

Yoga as Medicine by Timothy McCall. A fantastic reference book. Another one I lend out when friends/clients are having specific issues. Separated in to chapters be health condition. Each condition gets a little background info, a yogic perspective and recommendations for lifestyle and yoga practices with great photos

Relax and Renew: Restful Yoga for Stressful Times. by Judith Lasater: Another one with great recommendations for health concerns and a package of poses to try. I think EVERYONE should be doing restorative yoga in this style regardless of whether or not it is a stressful time.

The Ten Things To Do When Your Life Falls Apart by Daphne Kingma. You don’t need to have your life fall apart to benefit from this book. It’s a great way to reexamine your finer points and move forward in to a greater quality of life.

Creative Visualization by Shakti Gawain. A very realistic look at getting what you want out of life through visualization practices. A great complement to any law of attraction work or introspection practices.
