More and more people depend on computers for work and entertainment, which means more and more hours spent slumped in a chair—and more and more hand, wrist, neck, shoulder, and lower back injuries. In Yoga for Computer Users, Sandy Blaine offers a program of preventive self-care. She presents twenty-four illustrated poses, exercises, and breathing and relaxation techniques that increase circulation and range of motion, improve posture, and restore vitality. They can be practiced regardless of age or yoga experience, and are combined
in sequences, ranging from quick 5-minute stretching breaks to a 15-minute practice at the computer, to 30-minute at-home sessions designed for morning energy and evening relaxation. A special “Everyday Yoga” section presents lifestyle tips that help you learn to alternate mouse hands, strengthen your core, schedule computer-free days each week, and make time for joy.
