Darrin Zeer is on a mission to help stem the epidemic of worldwide stress. I do not know about you, but boy am I glad about that. He believes that technology, great as it is, has created a state he calls the “Zombie Apocalypse”. I am sure you can imagine what that is, but I will tell you it has everything to do with the way we stare at our smart phones every time we get in line or have to wait.
Darrin is the best selling author of Office Yoga and CNN calls him America’s Relaxation Expert, which makes sense as Darrin wants to help the world “take a breath” and learn to relax. Darrin is also a very busy man and you can find out more about Darrin on one of his websites Relax Yoga and Yoga for Lovers.
