Half Moon will be hosting a Book Club for our community beginning January 2018! We will be meeting on the 4th Friday of each month at 10:45am. As you know, yoga is a mind/body/spiritual practice and often our teachers refer to books that provide them with guidance and inspiration. Since many of you have expressed an interest in going further in your practice through exploring and discussing some of these great books. Some of our first selections will be about finding your dharma, having an attitude of abundance, using yoga’s ethical principles in your daily life, and how to be more present in the moment. Since it will be your book club, we hope you will participate in recommending choices in the future.

The first book we have selected is BRINGING YOUR YOGA TO LIFE: THE EVERYDAY PRACTICE OF ENLIGHTENED LIVING by Donna Farhi. 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 describes yoga’s transformational power as a complete life practice, far beyond it’s common reduction to mere exercise 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.
