*Please read The Yoga Sutras of Master Patanjali (I recommend the commentaries by Swami Sachidananda) and the Bhagavad Gita (I suggest that you read this in full and original text instead of commentary) and finally the Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda

*Watch our tutorials on our YouTube Channel
