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.
Doing 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.
"...provides sixty stretching and breathing exercises which can prove very useful for improving the physical and mental conditions of those having to undergo the hazards of long-hour desk jobs."
