Guide Review - Easy Desktop Yoga

Yoga instructor Juliet Lee has created a simple, soothing workout for anyone who works long hours at a computer. The workout begins with a warm up to loosen the shoulders and arms. Next you can choose standing poses or moves to stretch the head & neck, arms & wrists or back & torso. Each pose is designed to stretch the muscles most taxed by sitting. My favorites were wrist rolls and hip rotations. All exercises are done while sitting (except the standing poses) and can be done individually for short workouts or together for longer ones. Other segments cover posture, breathing and relaxing and includes workout reminders in 30-minute increments. This is an excellent way to reduce stress right at your desk. Cost is $19.95.
