Curated Products

I receive many requests for recommendations related to Yoga, Ayurveda, home cooking, and my other interests. So rather than attempting to answer such queries individually, I have set up this page with links to some of the books and products I have found most useful. Please note that some of these are affiliate links, and Yoganama may get a small commission if you purchase an item. However, everything I recommend here is something that I either own or have used and appreciated.

Samahan Tea

Samahan Tea

A shopkeeper recommended it to me in Rishikesh and now it's a staple in my medicine box. Anytime I feel a sore throat or a cold coming on I brew a cup of this tea.
Ayurveda Yoga Dosha Type

Yoga for Your Type by David Frawley

This book gives a comprehensive overview of how to incorporate Ayurvedic principles for your yoga practice. There is detailed information on which Asanas are suitable for each Dosha along with pictures and instructions.
Ayurveda David Frawley

Ayurveda Nature’s Medicine by David Frawley

David Frawley, aka Pandit Vamadeva Shastri, is one of the most popular Ayurveda practitioners of our times. He blends the essential elements of Yoga and Ayurveda and creates a holistic approach to healing. Any book by him is worth picking up but if you need to choose one - I'd start with this.
Ayurveda Dr. Svoboda

Ayurveda by Dr. Svoboda

Dr. Svoboda needs no introduction in the Ayurveda circles. This is a good book to add to your collection but not necessarily a great first book on Ayurveda. If you are very familiar with Ayurveda then definitely consider this book.
Ayurveda The science of Healing

Ayurveda: The science of self-healing

A good book to start your Ayurveda journey. Dr Vasant Lad is a leading authority on Ayurveda. You can even look up some of his free YouTube Videos - they are insightful and entertaining. He has a good sense of humour :)
