Working Yoga Momma Reading List for Beginner Yogis *Free Printable*

Recommend List for Beginner Yogis

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

I’ve had several friends recently ask me about good beginner Yoga books to start with their Yoga Journey.  After sending them suggestions off the top of my busy, working momma’s head, I decided to take some focused time to put a list together from my book shelf of my favorite yoga, spirituality, and personal development favorites.

I also went to the internet for additional suggestions for you, and in the process, I found a TON of books that are now on my own Books To Read List…I think maybe I’ll share that with you all next week.

For a printable list of my Recommended Reading list, simply click below and I’ll personally deliver it to your email inbox.
