ABOUT THE BOOK:
Internationally renowned and bestselling author Donna Farhi moves yoga practice beyond the mat into our everyday lives, restoring the tradition’s intended function as a complete, practical philosophy for daily living.
Expanding upon the teachings of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, the core text of the yoga tradition, Donna Farhi describes yoga’s transforming power as a complete life practice, far beyond its common reduction to mere exercise routine or stress management. This is the philosophy of yoga as a path to a deeper awareness of self. Drawing upon her years of teaching with students, Farhi guides readers through all the pitfalls and promises of navigating a spiritual practice.
“The simple yet powerful message of her book: ‘What yoga [promises]…is that through sincere, skillful, and consistent practice, anyone can become peaceful, happy, and free.’ This work is a thorough, highly readable, very rewarding discussion of how to do exactly that.” – The Yoga Journal Book Review
