5 Books to Change Your Life


1. The Yamas & Niyamas: Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice, by Deborah Adele

Written in a clear framework, this book explains the ethical guidelines and foundation to yogic thought. Deborah uses relatable examples from her own life and others to walk you through Yamas and Niyamas, which are the first two limbs of the eight-fold path of the Yoga Sutras. If the mention of The Sutras scares you, don’t be alarmed. She breaks down all of the attributes in a way that’s easy to absorb and great for future reference. Without demeaning the integrity of this book, it’s almost like a “Yoga Ethics for Dummies.” It’s definitely a worthy investment.

The gentleness of his teaching can be felt on the pages of this book like a familiar hug.
