Stretching for Paddling Boat Trips (book reports)
Stretching in the Office
By Bob Anderson. Stretches that you need while sitting at your desk or at your computer turn out to be many of the same stretches that are good preparation for sitting in our boats all day. This great little book covers lots of stretches that are useful at work or at play. (**** - my rating 4 stars out of 5)
By Julie T. Lusk. This book describes stretching and relaxing using yoga methods. It provides more of a whole body approach including some philosophy of wellness and lifestyle. (*** - my rating 3 stars out of 5)
