Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0399524460, Mass Market Paperback)

"Just like your computer screen needs a screen-saver to keep it from burning out, your body needs a body-saver ... so you aren't victimized and tortured by your work," writes yoga instructor Julie Lusk, who dedicates this book to "mouse potatoes." It's a clever idea: adapt hatha yoga principles of breathing and postures so that they can be done in a chair. Lusk presents a variety of stretches and movements. Most are organized by body part (neck and shoulders; face; arms, wrists and hands; back; legs and feet). For example, do the Infinity Neck Stretch by drawing an infinity sign (sideways figure "8") with your nose and eyes, or do the attention-getting Lion Pose by inhaling "as you bug out your eyes, stick your tongue way out, and stretch out your fingers." (Do tell us what your boss says when you do this in the office.) Some, but not most, of the poses are illustrated, and although more illustrations would make this book easier to use, the written instructions are very clear. You also get "power naps and guided imagery" (it wouldn't be yoga if you didn't get to relax) and some specially designed sequences for the whole body, such as the "Seated Sun Salute." There's a sequence to calm down, another to energize, and another to release anger and frustration (you probably want to be alone in the room for this one). No yoga experience is required to use and appreciate this helpful book. --Joan Price
