Description
Back Of The Book

For most of us, desk is like a second home. In fact, we probably spend more time glued to our desks than at home. This often results in severe backache, frozen shoulder, difficulty in walking and body pain. All this affects the quality of life and work, yet we do not do anything about it and keep putting it off. Desktop Yoga solves your dilemma in a flash because it gives you simple and effective yoga exercises that you can do at your desk itself.

Bharat Thakur is an internationally acclaimed master of yoga with an extraordinary background that has found extensive place in the media, including the time magazine. He was chosen by his master, Sukhdev Bramhachari at the young age of four to be taken to the Himalayas, where he lived for 14 years. Under the guidance of his master, he studied yoga intensively and comprehensively, including related areas such as Ayurveda, tantra and mantra. He also studied Sufism, Jainism and Buddhism, and then returned from the Himalayas to embark on formal education. He completed his graduation and subsequently his post graduation in exercise, physiology and yoga. He lives in Mumbai and travels throughout the world, teaching people the ancient yogic meditation techniques that have helped to improve and change the lives of many in a powerful yet subtle and unexpected manner.

Introduction

The idea of writing a book on desktop yoga came to me when I visited a large corporate house. I was lunchtime and it was a funny sight to see a person bending his neck right and lift, another rotating his shoulders, some others bending forward and backward while a few massaging each others' shoulders I felt sorry for then as these are the people who form the backbone of the economy of my nation.

My research on people working in offices give me some very strange results. For example, people who sit in front of switched-on desktops get so hypnotized that they unknowingly work longer than their required hours. Most accidents on the road happen at night because of the white line drawn on the road. The flashing headlights of an approaching vehicle illuminate it even more and people driving at night, watch the white beam of paint on the road. After driving for some hours, they get so hypnotized by it that when there is a break in that white line, they forget to turn and instead hit the divider on the road.

This is simply to explain to all those people working on computers that, unknowingly, they get hypnotized by the light coming from the screen and, in that state of hypnosis, they tend to forget all about their body posture. So they take a comfortable position which includes a slouched back legs spread apart and head tilted downward. If what I'm saying stands true for you computer users. Then you all are likely to suffer from at least problems affecting one of the following.

Stomach
Lumbar back
Middle back;
Cervical area;
Shoulder.

Most computer-tables have cabinets below the desktop, leaving no space for the legs. The result is that you legs may develop veinous problems and sciatic pain along the sides. Watching the screen for hours on end, your eyesight is bound to weaken and affect your brain and blood circulation. The chances of migraine occurring are also very high. A frozen shoulder could also be a gift from your desktop. Problems like these are bound to arise even if you have the most advanced sitting arrangements - the right height for the computer, right posture for your body, correct seating, etc. These will simply decrease you problems but will not remove them.

So this book is not about the right seating arrangements nor about the correct posture for sitting at a computer, etc. it is intended for people who dare to break their habits and accept that productivity is not about working long hours but working with the right frame of mind. Being computer professionals, your other nickname is 'creativity'. You have to create new stuff all the time and, to be truly creative, you have to get rid of that state of hypnosis you find yourself in when sitting in front of the computer screen.

So, those people who dare to pick up this book, must read it well as it affects the rest of your life. You will be free from all kinds of problems, diseases and aches and pains.

Testimonials

Just wanted to say thanks for everything. I am really impressed with the statue, the packaging and the service. It's absolutely beautiful!

I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
