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.

In what ways are we sabotaging ourselves, and how can we extricate ourselves from the mire of self-indulgence?”—from Breaking Free from Sloth
