First Sentence
THE HUMAN BODY evolved to hunt and gather, to run and jump and climb, to play hard and rest fully—not to sit in front of a computer all day. Read the first page

By Tami Brady HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Sept. 12 2011
Format: Paperback
If you spend any time working on your computer and you'll undoubtedly feel the tension building up in your shoulders, neck, and back. If you do a lot of typing or even texting on a regular basis, you may even run the risk of repetitive movement injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Of course, taking regular breaks helps reduce the risk of permanent injury but nonetheless a lot of the tension remains.

Yoga for Computer Users provides some simple exercise that you can do to release that tension while stretching those tight muscles. The poses are very easy to do, even if you've never done yoga before and are completely out of shape. Most of these exercises only take a minute or two and are meant to be sitting.

I definitely carry a lot of tension in my shoulders, neck, and back. Since getting this book, I've been taking little breaks once or twice a day to do the full range of desktop yoga postures. I've been surprised at how energized I feel afterwards.

HASH(0xa43b97d4) out of 5 stars Anyone with use of their arms and a modicum of common sense will benefit from this book! May 9 2010
By Robyn Scherr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm a craniosacral and massage therapist, and recommend this book to nearly all my clients, young and old, active and sedentary. Every one of them who uses it has seen benefits, and I notice that they all have longer pain- and kink-free stretches of time between sessions.

Sandy Blaine writes in a clear, engaging voice. Her instructions are precise, and still very easy to follow. The beauty and genius of this book is that the poses are geared directly to the symptoms people get with longterm computer use, they can be done nearly anywhere with very little equipment, anyone with use of their arms and a modicum of common sense can perform them well, and the protocols are flexible time-wise, fitting in to busy schedules.

Anyone who spends time in a chair, with their hands out in front of them (think dental hygienists, quilters, cyclists, teachers...) can benefit from this yoga program. Folks who stand with their arms out (avid cooks and bakers...) also see great benefits.

I rehabbed an injured knee with Sandy's Yoga for Healthy Knees, so I know firsthand that her work is excellent.

HASH(0xa43ad9d8) out of 5 stars Great Yoga Moves or Office Workers! April 7 2009
By Shelley Gibson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has some great moves you can do sitting at your desk. I can't do all of them because I'm not that flexible yet, but it's a goal! With fibromyalgia, I need to stretch my muscles to relieve some of the pain. This offers easy exercises for us "regular" people.

HASH(0xa43ad9cc) out of 5 stars Practical advice, excellently presented June 4 2008
By C. Chafer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great book for anyone who spends a lot of time at a computer, or just at a desk. Even if you have never done yoga before, this book will make your body feel better after a session in front of the screen. It's also a great reminder (and a good excuse!) to take breaks. Practical and clearly explained, this book should be required buying for every Human Resources department across the land. It will save companies a ton of lost employee time - and as they know, prevention is a whole lot better (and cheaper) than cure!

HASH(0xa43ad708) out of 5 stars For Anybody and Everybody April 6 2010
By Andrea Wolper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I received this book as a gift and I was relieved to find out you don't have to be an experienced yoga practitioner to do the exercises. I read through the intro, and then took a few minutes to try the first four exercises and, honestly, my body felt more "open." Everything's explained and illustrated clearly, so I'm looking forward to progressing through the exercises. I think anyone who spends any time sitting in a chair could benefit.

HASH(0xa43ad528) out of 5 stars Excellent book, inspiring teacher July 11 2013
By Jeffrey D. Hickey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was recently at a book fair where Sandy Blaine gave a speech and led those in attendance, including all the authors, in a few practical poses and exercises. Her enthusiastic, confident energy was contagious, and her advice invaluable for all in attendance. I especially enjoyed watching the other authors drop everything they were doing to listen, heed and benefit from the simple advice and positions she had them achieve. As I spend a large amount of my day at a computer, I was anxious to read her book and see if her heart felt energy translated to the printed page. After a few months with this book, I am pleased to say it does. This book is simple, instructive, and completely helpful. It has aided me relieving stress in ways both physical and mental. I am especially grateful for the section dealing with breathing and meditation, which are often forgotten in the daily grind of getting things done, or even during basic stretching. After focusing on my breathing, I find all my actions are more efficient, even joyful in the aftermath of stress reduction. This book is now a fixture in my day, both at work and at play.
