In answer to many requests, I’ve added this resources page to list books, programs, podcasts and websites that have inspired me over the years.  I am certain that I have forgotten many, and some books may be out of print, but they are all gems. 

Yoga books that I have used for teacher training and yoga sutra study are also listed, although I have probably missed some from over the years.
