Yoga teacher, Tony Eason encourages “Hatha Yoga” students to develop a deeper understanding of “Yoga” [the whole] by not only attending & experiencing a variety of physical yoga practices, but by studying classic yogic texts and reading books on anatomy, physiology, pranayama, kriyas, meditation, “self-help, ” and kinesiology .
In the context of Yoga [the whole], some primary readings & best seller books would include the “Yoga Sutras” by Patanjali, the “Bhagavad Gita,” the “Hatha Yoga Pradipika” and “Gem for Women” by Geeta Iyengar.
Classic Yogic Text can be dense and overwhelming to comprehend Therefore, to bring light to the subject matter, yoga students are advised to seek out guidance & ask questions via internet forums, yoga groups, retreats, book clubs, workshops, and Jhana Yoga teachers.
