Your 700+ page Spiritually Fit Yoga YTT manual, with lifetime access to online videos is a valuable, comprehensive resource. These books supplement the four 50 hour modules of your 200 hour training and build the foundation of your yoga teacher library:

- Paths to God: Living the Bhagavad Gita by Ram Dass https://amzn.to/3punGC9 (If you find the Bhagavad Gita challenging to understand, I found this book easy to read. Ram Dass made the Gita more relatable for me. Loved this book)
- Living in the Light: Yoga for Self-Realization by Deepak Chopra MD, Sarah Platt-Finger https://amzn.to/3W9aEGB (I’m tempted to make this part of my required 200 hour YTT book! It’s a beautiful blend of yoga philosophy presented by Deepak Chopra and an introduction to yoga postures by Sarah Platt-Finger. This would be a great resource when creating self-inquiry work for workshops or retreats. The audible version of this book is read by Deepak and Sarah)
