Here are my suggestions for the top ten books recommended for newbie Yoga teachers. I’d be very interested to hear other people’s suggestions and ideas…
‘Heart of Yoga’ Desikachar – very beautiful classic intro to yoga.
‘Teaching people not poses’ Jay Fields – great tips on how to find your voice as a teacher.
‘The practice manual’ David Swenson – great for how to modify poses to make them accessible to all.
‘Yoga Anatomy’ Leslie Kaminoff – very practical yoga oriented take on anatomy.
‘Yoga Sutras of Patanjali’ Swami Satchidananda – accessible look at the Yoga Sutras from an Indian perspective but relevant to the west.
‘How Yoga Works’ – lovely take on the Yoga Sutras and how to teach more than just poses.
‘Teaching Yoga’ Donna Farhi – a look at the ethics of teaching yoga – food for thought.
‘Yoga The spirit and practice of moving into stillness’ Eric Schiffman – I found this hugely helpful and inspiring when I first started teaching.
‘Bringing Yoga to Life’ Donna Farhi – short accessible and useful.
‘The Tree of Yoga’ Iyengar – an accessible into to yoga philosophy – all Iyengar’s books are great.
