Yoga has gone completely mainstream. Sensible people everywhere are saying "Om" and doing postures once a week. Enter the world's easiest yoga book for the place we need it most: work! Renowned teacher Darrin Zeer brings this ancient Indian art to the modern-day office with a fully illustrated, easy-to-use guide offering 75 stress-relieving stretches perfect for the cube environment. Unlike most yoga guides, Office Yoga offers a fun, accessible approach and is useful for both beginners and experts. Exercises are organized by time of day and for a variety of situations—waking stretches, commute exercises, on-the-phone and at-the-copy machine stretches. Humorous and colorful illustrations by Michael Klein enliven exercises that can be performed anywhere from the elevator to the conference room. This handy little book will fit nicely on any desktop, and makes a great gift for the workaholic in your life.

About the Author:

Darrin Zeer spent seven years in Asia studying the different forms of yoga. He now focuses on teaching others to lead simpler, healthier, more peaceful lives. He is based in Southern California.

Review:

As the title implies, Zeer offers a series of short, simpleyoga stretches and poses or asanas designed for the home and office. "Office Yoga" takes the reader from early morning in-bed yoga stretches through workday routines (easily performed in the cramped and hurried atmosphere of the office) and returns home with gentle and lighthearted exercises such as "Yoga for Couch Potatoes."

"At-The-Desk-Relaxation," and "Afternoon Invigoration," offer a balanced mix of traditional Hatha yoga poses (e.g., Sun Salutation, Cobra, and Cat) and adaptations such as, "Keyboard Calisthenics" (for loosening wrists and fingers), "E-mail Meditation" (for calming nerves), and "Crowded Elevator Stretch" (to restore energy ). The exercises are enlivened by Michael Klein's retro, New Yorker-ish illustrations, as well as the occasional inspirational quote from the likes of Fred Astaire and Buddha.

Zeer doesn't spend much time teaching yoga concepts; this is a day-planner for relaxation, with a simple, easy-to-follow yoga routine for relieving stress. But it serves that purpose well. (Beliefnet, May 2000) -- From Beliefnet
