Review

Sandy Blaine grew up in Berkeley, California, where she took her first yoga class in 1987 and immediately fell in love with its beauty and mystery. She has a joyous devotion to her own daily yoga practice, which she strives to share with her students through her teaching and writing.

Sandy got her start teaching yoga at the University of California, Berkeley in 1993 and has been teaching full time in the San Fransisco Bay Area ever since. In 1995, she graduated from the Advanced Studies Program at Berkeley's Yoga Room; she joined their faculty in 2000. She is one of the founders and codirectors of the Alameda Yoga Station, which opened in 1995. In addition to teaching her weekly classes in Berkeley and Alameda, she has been the in-house yoga teacher at Pixar Animation Studios in Emeryville, California since 1994.

Sandy's writing has appeared in Ascent, Yoga International, and Yoga Journal. In 2004 she wrote a series on home practice, "Asana at Home," for Yoga International's "Asana" column.

Sandy resides in Oakland, California where, when not teaching, practicing, or writing about yoga, she enjoys reading, cooking, and hiking in the Oakland hills.

Format: Paperback
I'm a craniosacral and massage therapist, and recommend this book to nearly all my clients, young and old, active and sedentary. Every one of them who uses it has seen benefits, and I notice that they all have longer pain- and kink-free stretches of time between sessions.

Sandy Blaine writes in a clear, engaging voice. Her instructions are precise, and still very easy to follow. The beauty and genius of this book is that the poses are geared directly to the symptoms people get with longterm computer use, they can be done nearly anywhere with very little equipment, anyone with use of their arms and a modicum of common sense can perform them well, and the protocols are flexible time-wise, fitting in to busy schedules.

Anyone who spends time in a chair, with their hands out in front of them (think dental hygienists, quilters, cyclists, teachers...) can benefit from this yoga program. Folks who stand with their arms out (avid cooks and bakers...) also see great benefits.

I rehabbed an injured knee with Sandy's Yoga for Healthy Knees, so I know firsthand that her work is excellent.

This book has some great moves you can do sitting at your desk. I can't do all of them because I'm not that flexible yet, but it's a goal! With fibromyalgia, I need to stretch my muscles to relieve some of the pain. This offers easy exercises for us "regular" people.

This is a great book for anyone who spends a lot of time at a computer, or just at a desk. Even if you have never done yoga before, this book will make your body feel better after a session in front of the screen. It's also a great reminder (and a good excuse!) to take breaks. Practical and clearly explained, this book should be required buying for every Human Resources department across the land. It will save companies a ton of lost employee time - and as they know, prevention is a whole lot better (and cheaper) than cure!

I was recently at a book fair where Sandy Blaine gave a speech and led those in attendance, including all the authors, in a few practical poses and exercises. Her enthusiastic, confident energy was contagious, and her advice invaluable for all in attendance. I especially enjoyed watching the other authors drop everything they were doing to listen, heed and benefit from the simple advice and positions she had them achieve. As I spend a large amount of my day at a computer, I was anxious to read her book and see if her heart felt energy translated to the printed page. After a few months with this book, I am pleased to say it does. This book is simple, instructive, and completely helpful. It has aided me relieving stress in ways both physical and mental. I am especially grateful for the section dealing with breathing and meditation, which are often forgotten in the daily grind of getting things done, or even during basic stretching. After focusing on my breathing, I find all my actions are more efficient, even joyful in the aftermath of stress reduction. This book is now a fixture in my day, both at work and at play.

I received this book as a gift and I was relieved to find out you don't have to be an experienced yoga practitioner to do the exercises. I read through the intro, and then took a few minutes to try the first four exercises and, honestly, my body felt more "open." Everything's explained and illustrated clearly, so I'm looking forward to progressing through the exercises. I think anyone who spends any time sitting in a chair could benefit.
