Untertitel: Healthy necks, shoulders, wrists, and hands in the postmodern age

Klappentext: Sandy Blaine, author of Yoga for Healthy Knees, has been teaching yoga in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1993. In 1995, she graduated from the Advanced Studies Program at The Yoga Room in Berkeley, California, and joined the faculty in 2000. She is a cofounder and codirector of the Alameda Yoga Station. She has been the in-house yoga teacher for Pixar Animation Studios since 1994.  She lives in Oakland, California.

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.
