Overview

It's incredible how fast we adapt to new technology. But occasionally, these adaptations can actually be detrimental to our health. You see hordes of people walking around with their faces glued to mobile phones. We've all seen it - the chin goes forward, chest is dropped, and back verges forward to provide a better view of the phone screen. Not only our eyes suffer because of too much screen time but also other body parts like the neck, back, and even respiratory system. It's not natural to constantly look down in order to check yet another text message. It's not natural to sit in front of a computer for hours at a time. Neck and back injuries are not the only consequences of this new habit. It's been shown that the so-called text neck (or computer neck) can even drastically reduce your respiratory capacity.

Fortunately, it's possible to protect your body from the detrimental consequences of a modern lifestyle. Desk Yogi is a team of fitness, yoga, and health experts, heralded by the founder Jacqui Burge. Burge is a yoga teacher with more than 20 years of experience, who noticed that something's wrong with the way most people go on about their typical office and texting activities. She realized that most people don't have enough time or interest to attend full yoga sessions, so Burge made short exercises that you can do anytime, anywhere.

Numerous companies, businesses, and individuals use Desk Yogi, and the Computer and Text Neck-Stretching Exercises course has more than 100,000 learners on LinkedIn. Dr. Baxter Bell, the teacher for this course, will help us learn proper stretching exercises for the back and neck.

"If you continue to be in the posture of text neck for a long period of time, you could lose 30% of your respiratory capacity over time. That means having a third of your lungs taken out of your body. This is a big deal, everybody."
