svadhyaya book club

Svadhyaya, the fourth yogic niyama, is the concept of self-study. When we practice yoga, it’s not just for physical benefit. We’re on an inward journey (BKS’ words, not mine) of self-discovery. And that’s what differentiates it from pure exercise.

Svadhyaya is study that concerns the true Self… Study does not just mean passing over the pages. It means trying to understand every word – studying with the heart.

So the same will apply to our book club. We will read books that ask the BIG questions that lead us down the path of self-discovery. Which book would you like to read?

If you have a book that didn’t make the list, leave a note in the comments!
