Tackling Tension with Simple Stretches You Can Do at Your Desk
Office Yoga is a survival handbook for the deskbound; a practical manual of simple movements which you can do a few minutes at a time throughout the day to relieve the tension and stress of sedentary working life. It gives clear instructions and illustrations for sixty stretching and breathing exercises-simple, safe, and fun to do-most of which can be done sitting in your chair at your desk.
Office Yoga will make you feel better. It will relieve and help prevent headache, neck-ache, backache, and eye-ache. It will improve your posture and breathing, replenish your vitality, boost your energy levels and improve your concentration.
Office Yoga also offers guidance on improving your personal working environment- chair, desk and lighting, and suggests how to make use of the time you spend travelling to and from work.
If you work at a desk, computer terminal or drawing board, in an office or at home, Office Yoga will be of sound, practical help to you.
Though small in size, this book is highly useful for beginners as well as advanced practitioners of yoga who find themselves confined to an office for long stretches of time. Clearly illustrated, it teaches 60 simple, safe and fun stretching and breathing exercises - yoga-based movements coordinated with breathing - which can be performed from a seated position. A reading list is included for those who want to know more.
