Bringing Yoga to Life
The Everyday Practice of Enlightened LivingBook - 2003
Draws on the core teachings of yoga to present a practical philosophy for daily living that promotes deeper self awareness, a more meaningful spiritual life, and physical health. 20,000 first printing.
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
