15 - Other Related Books

See Lesson #253 for a review of why this list was put together, how it can be used, and a brief history of the rise of yoga in the West.

This is not a recommended reading list. No one should have to read this much to travel the road to enlightenment! The online lessons and AYP books represent a distillation of what can be found in all of these books, and elsewhere, from the standpoint of managing daily practices and experiences. 

The book title links are to specific book pages on USA, or other pages, where each book can be found and further researched. Some of the books on this list are out of print. Often Amazon will have used books for sale on out of print books, so make sure to check that. If there are none available when you look, then try doing a Google search on the title and author for other sources.

It is hoped you will find this list to be a useful resource as you travel along your chosen path. Enjoy!

The guru is in you.
