Yoga Book Club

I've written a few posts on here about my Twitter Yoga Book Club, #YOBC. I've met the most interesting people who all are reading the same book and I've been very fortunate to have corresponded with a few of the authors as well.

Out little #YOBC is growing with more and more members with each book we read. We have no joining requirements, you just comment on what you are reading when you feel like it. People will quote their favorite parts, discuss the authors point of view, or share similar experiences.

Yes, it's social media, but like I wrote in Not Your Momma's Book Club, it's a new era of book clubs. But I guarantee we get just as much, if not more, from this new technology. When in the days of living room book clubs would I have been able to speak directly to the author?

If you are on Twitter and want to join us, jump in anytime. Comment using #YOBC. Even if you aren't on Twitter, I think you'll enjoy these yoga books:

  1. Yoga School Dropout - Lucy Edge
  2. Poser, My Life In 23 Yoga Poses - Claire Dederer 
  3. Holy Coy - Sarah MacDonald (read my review here)
  4. A Life Worth Breathing - Max Strom ( read my review here)
  5. Yoga Bitch - Suzanne Morrison - review to be posted soon
Have a book you think our #YOBC would really like? Please put the title and author in the comments section. I'm always looking for good books to read. And yes, I also read lots of non-yoga books too!


  1. I love this idea. I'm currently doing a book club ( Perhaps you would like some of the books we have picked for the next year. :)

  2. Great list. I only found out about #YOBC when Max Strom's A Life Worth Breathing was the YOBC. I am grateful to be introduced to A Life Worth Breathing and so far I am really enjoying Yoga Bitch. Thank you! I hope I can check out the first 3 books too.

  3. How fun! Found out about #YOBC from your elephant journal post/reviews of Poser & Holy Cow. Off to get Yoga Bitch for my Nook.
