Overview

In this selection from Bringing Yoga to Life, one of America’s most respected and loved Yoga teachers helps free us from the trivial humdrum of daily life and shows us how to live more fully by connecting with our soul.

In Breaking Free from Sloth, Donna Farhi presents the philosophy of yoga as a path to a deeper awareness of self. Drawing upon her years of teaching with students and writing in an engaging and accessible style, Farhi guides readers through the pitfalls of sloth and reveals the promises of navigating a spiritual practice.

“If we define a Yoga practice as an awareness of and investment in our most cherished values, we may be dismayed to discover how little real energy we designate to the central purpose of our life. So when I speak of a habitual disinclination toward effort, I am speaking specifically about purposeful effort. In what ways are we sabotaging ourselves, and how can we extricate ourselves from the mire of self-indulgence?”—from Breaking Free from Sloth
