Yoga Novels

By chance I discovered the Mantra for Murder Mysteries this winter, and have enjoyed the first two novels, my first real foray into murder mysteries. Now I’m onto the third and last book in the series. It has me wondering what other yoga novels exist, a series preferably, that I might like to sink my teeth into? If I had my druthers the criteria for these novels would be: funny, PG, acceptably clever, and with strong female leads.

This is what I found. Not exactly matching my criteria, but perhaps worth a try:

  • Holy Cow, An Indian Adventure by Sarah Macdonald
  • Yoga Bitch,  One Woman’s Quest to Conquer Skepticism, Cynicism, and Cigarettes on the Path to Enlightenment by Suzanne Morrison
  • Downward Dog, Upward Fog, A lighthearted novel about a woman who just can’t seem to stay on the spiritual path
  • Yoga School Dropout, A hilarious, hapless and desperate quest for mystic Indians and Tantric bliss by Lucy Edge
  • The Yoga Teacher
  • Stretch: The Unlikely Making of a Yoga Dude
  • Tales from the Yoga Studio,
