Summary: Please read this book and submit a summary before the beginning of the training, latest before certification. The summaries may be handwritten or digital and can be as long as you choose. What is important is your understanding.
Recommended: Suggested reading
Reference: Please have these books in hard or soft copy at home and on hand at the training. In Bali, however, due to the flight and luggage, please ONLY bring the “Light on Yoga” Book – thank you!

Only “Light on Yoga” ought to be brought to the training in Bali. Otherwise our manual and books on-site are sufficient.

Books may be bought in hard copy or kindle, except reference books. We suggest to order the following books in soft/hard cover, because you will book them for a lifetime as reference: Light on Yoga, Bhagavad Gita, Yoga Sutras
