5 Books to Read to Enhance Your Yoga and Meditation Practice

A big part of what we love most about yoga and meditation is that it not only benefits our physical beings but also our mental and emotional beings. Any seasoned yogi or meditator will tell you that yoga and meditation are equally mentally and emotionally stimulating! Therefore, it makes sense that, in order to enhance their yoga and meditation practice, we might turn to literature.

Below we’ve outlined our top five best books to read to enhance your yoga and meditation practice.

  1. Light on Yoga: The Bible of Modern Yoga by B.K.S. Iyengar

Snippet from official synopsis (courtesy of Amazon.com):

“The definitive guide to the philosophy and practice of Yoga--the ancient healing discipline for body and mind--by its greatest living teacher. Light on Yoga provides complete descriptions and illustrations of all the positions and breathing exercises.”

  1. The Yoga Beginner's Bible by Tai Morello

Snippet from official synopsis (courtesy of Amazon.com):

“With The Yoga Beginner's Bible, you will embark on an inner journey that will take you back to the state of peace, joy and happiness you were born to inhabit. From the outside yoga can seem like an esoteric, mystical endeavor exclusively reserved to Tibetan monks and spiritual adepts. This could not be further from the truth. Yoga is not only accessible to anyone, it is easy to learn if you have the right mindset and the benefits are only a few minutes away.”

  1. Poser: My Life in Twenty-three Yoga Poses by Claire Dederer

Snippet from official synopsis (courtesy of Amazon.com):

“Poser is unlike any other book about yoga you will read―because it is actually a book about life. Witty and heartfelt, sharp and irreverent, Poser is for anyone who has ever tried to stand on their head while keeping both feet on the ground.”

  1. The Wisdom of Insecurity: A Message for an Age of Anxiety by Alan Watts

Snippet from official synopsis (courtesy of Amazon.com):

“In this fascinating book, Alan Watts explores man's quest for psychological security, examining our efforts to find spiritual and intellectual certainty in the realms of religion and philosophy. The Wisdom of Insecurity underlines the importance of our search for stability in an age where human life seems particularly vulnerable and uncertain. Watts argues our insecurity is the consequence of trying to be secure and that, ironically, salvation and sanity lie in the recognition that we have no way of saving ourselves.”

  1. Do Your Om Thing: Bending Yoga Tradition to Fit Your Modern Life by Rebecca Pacheco

Snippet from official synopsis (courtesy of Amazon.com):

“In Do Your Om Thing, master yoga teacher and creator of the popular blog OmGal.com Rebecca Pacheco shows us how to do just that. The true practice of yoga, she says, goes deeper than achieving the perfect headstand—it is about bringing awareness and intention to every part of our lives. In her warm, personal, and often hilarious prose, Rebecca translates yogic philosophy for its twenty-first-century devotees, making ancient principles feel accessible, relatable, and genuinely rooted in the world in which we live today.”
