The fresh and functional Dharma Desk.
This “whole working thing” with computer, iPad, tablet...is a bit of a conundrum isn’t it? People sit anywhere from 4 to 6 to 10 hours a day, churning out (hopefully) creative pieces that are inspiring, and serve others to make a difference. We know that it can create havoc on the body through tightening myofascia along the front of our body, through our hips, between our shoulder blades, and in our back. And, it isn’t going to go away anytime soon.
Well, here is the good news. We have yoga to help ease out of “working at a computer posture”. And we have 2 new companies - Dharma Desk and Sukhasana - who offer a functional and well-designed solution to give ease to our working lives.
Dharma Desk offers very pretty and effective wooden desks that enable you to “go to the floor”. You can literally sit on your meditation cushion and do your work. www.dharmadesk.com I know Carla and her husband, have seen the house they built themselves (literally), and I love this desk. Produced in Canada.
Sukhasana offers a very cool chair that I love for my “off the floor desk”. This chair will support you to sit in crosslegged, and if you “aren’t quite there yet” the chair has cushions to support your thighs. It is very radical, creative and functional. Also made in Canada, you can find the chairs at www.sukhasana.com
