Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Counter to the plethora of seven-step solutions and quick-fix formulas offered by so many contemporary self-help guides, the ancient science of Yoga does not pretend to be simple, quick, or easy. It is a practice that takes into account the very messy and often complex phenomenon of what we call a human being and the equally challenging task of everyday living. What Yoga does promise, however, is that through sincere, skillful, and consistent practice, anyone can become peaceful, happy, and free.

-- Donna Farhi

In this groundbreaking work, internationally acclaimed teacher Donna Farhi restores Yoga's traditional role as a complete, practical philosophy for everyday living. Most Yoga practice focuses on the physical aspects, or asanas, neglecting the profound spiritual teachings that are its foundation. In this beautifully written, encouraging, and down-to-earth guide, Farhi provides a blueprint for understanding the complete philosophy of Yoga. For beginners and seasoned practitioners alike, Bringing Yoga to Life offers the tools to help us navigate the ups and downs of a spiritual practice, illustrating how we can become our own teacher and obtain the deep rewards available through engagement with an authentic path. Brimming with insight gathered from over twenty years of teaching experience, this lyrical exploration of the heart of Yoga is essential for anyone who practices this ancient tradition.
