A good place to start:
Yoga Mala (by Sri K Pattabhi Jois), it’s a older text, but explains the benefits of each asana and the correct breath for each movement. A key text for Ashtanga students.
Ashtanga Yoga: Practice and Philosophy by Gregor Maehle. A fantastic reference text for your practice, with anatomy, modifications and a brilliant translations of the Yoga Sutras.
Yoga Sutras by Edward Bryant, a super detailed read, but a resource I use every week for my studies of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
