Reading List

In an effort to help with your learning experience, Shades Of Yoga has compiled a reading list that features some of the most highly respected and recommended authors on the globe in the fields of spiritual philosophy, nutrition and yoga related anatomy. All of these books are available online from various sources and many that are 50-years or older are now available free of charge due to their copyrights expiration date. Shades Of Yoga has eliminated all excuses to not work your way through the list and grant yourself to expand on your knowledge of Yoga and allow it to blossom into full blown wisdom. Remember to keep checking the list on a regular basis as we will be updating it whenever possible.
