SU&Y Book Club

What is the SU&Y Book Club?

SU&Y Book Club is Shut Up & Yoga’s official book club, hosted by Ashley Josephine Zuberi.

Reading a diverse array of perspectives and spending time in inquiry and honest dialogue is a natural extension of the yoga practice and an opportunity to refine and transform our beliefs over time. As champions of evolution and growth, we honor the learning process that comes from reading and sharing information.

What books do you read?

We read a mix of titles spanning a variety of genres and inquire into how the stories and information presented in each book pertains to the art and science of yoga.

How can I participate?

Each month, we'll publish a review of that month's book as well as host a discussion call where you can share your takeaways in conversation with other modern yogis from the SU&Y community. If you have a favorite book you would like us to consider for the book club, send your suggestions to!
