Books Read Lately

      Comments Off on Books Read Lately

One of my goals for 2018 is to read 52 books. With 15 books completed in 3 months, I feel pretty confident that I’m headed in the right direction to meet my goal. I’ve had several people ask me what I’ve been reading so far so I thought I would hop in here today and share some of the books I’ve been reading so far this year.

Yoga Books

The first one, The Yamas & Niyamas was required reading as part of my yoga teacher training program. The other three were supplemental readings. The Lost Teachings of Yoga was an audiobook and quite interesting to listen to on my way to YTT on Sunday mornings. The Vedas to Vinyasa broke down the history of yoga in a way that was easier to understand. The final book, The Art and Business of Teaching Yoga was a pretty easy read and honestly a great read for aspiring yoga teachers, whether you are going to do this on the side or if you’re wanting to make more of a career from teaching yoga (or if you’re falling somewhere in between).

As you may or may not know, I’m more of a non-fiction reader than a fiction reader though that doesn’t mean I won’t sit down with a good fiction story from time to time, it’s just less likely to happen. I haven’t read any fiction stories so far this year, but here’s some (not all) of the non-fiction and personal development books I’ve read.
