Yoga Resources

There are so many wonderful yoga resources, though none is more valuable than attending class under the guidance and caring, watchful eyes of a qualified yoga teacher. The teaching of yoga is primarily a relationship between teacher and student, though in this day and age one can take online classes without ever meeting the teacher. As a long-time practitioner and teacher of yoga asana who is continually scrutinized by other yogis, I often take classes via Yoga International. Though this may sound self-serving, I recommend studying with a teacher for at least a year before taking online classes.

The Shambhava tradition I study is experiential. Knowledge is acquired primarily through doing and being rather than in solely pursuing the intellectual underpinnings of yoga. For an avid reader like myself, this continues to be a challenge.

Below are some of my favorites. I will continue to add to the list.

Being in their presence and having their loving eyes upon you is a gift in itself. The wisdom imparted is the icing on the cake.

A Seat by the Fire, by Swami Shambhavananda, or our beloved Babaji, the spiritual leader at Eldorado and Shoshoni Yoga Centers in Colorado. You can buy the book at either ashram, or if you know me personally, I’d be happy to lend you my copy.
