Yoga Books in the Palm of Your Hand

As most of you Kindle lovers already know, there are more and more great yoga books available in e-book format.   Although I think e-books are still a bit overpriced, I love the convenience of having a small yoga library in the palm of my hand anywhere I go.  I’ll be the first to admit that some yoga books work for the Kindle, and some just don’t.  Yoga “confessionals” are a perfect fit for the Kindle. But what makes the Kindle (in all of its variations) way cool is that every now and then Amazon has a fire-sale on a yoga e-book for a price that you would never see for a book made from trees.

Tonight I noticed that for this weekend only, Neal Pollack’sStretch: The Unlikely Making of a Yoga Dude,” is available for only 99 cents!  I haven’t read it yet, but at that price it’s kind of a no-brainer. Downloaded.  From the product description and the reviews I’ve read around the web, it sounds like an entertaining read:

Stretch mercilessly lampoons the bizarre, omnipresent culture of yoga, but it’s also a story of profound personal transformation. Pollack started off mocking yoga. Now he’s become one of its most enthusiastic proponents.

Just curious, what’s your favorite yoga book you read this year?

  1. Just devoured The Great Oom, by Robert Love. A fabulous, very American story of Pierre Bernard, the man who introduced hatha yoga to America in the early 20th century. A real character, but he was a true scholar, transmitted by a Indian teacher, of the Tantric traditions. The true, non-fiction story is almost unbelievable, yet I could hear the words of my Anusara teacher…..

  2. Carried by a Promise – by Swami Radhananda – what can happen when you REALLY get into Yoga! And it’s available on Kindle…

  3. Stretch was actually 99¢ for all of August, as well. I bought it and couldn’t put it down (and couldn’t stop cackling, which disturbed my partner several times in both intensity and duration ;)). Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  4. ‘Jivamukti Yoga’ by Sharon Gannon and David Life- I am trying to get ready for my next yoga training… asanas, asanas & more asanas it is 🙂

  5. Just found your site and I love it! Thanks for sharing. I just finished Yoga and the Quest for the True Self by Stephan Cope. Really wonderful. I got it from the library and it was torture to not underline all the brilliant passages!

  6. Searching for, how to get bankruptcy records? No problems. You can possess an exact copy of the original bankruptcy documents. Your bankruptcy court records and documents are readily available and you can have it in your possession within minutes of your order.

  7. It’s amazing how technology is coming together with these alternative methods of healing. I just blogged about yoga and mental health today. I should suggest this to my readers. Thanks for a great blog!
