This review is from: Eye Yoga – How You See is How You Think (Paperback)

I wanted to see more clearly with eyes and mind and this book delivered both. The easy to follow exercises have retrained my eye muscles and my brain. I work on the computer for several hours a day, and had developed tension and stress in my eyes. With the easy to follow exercises from Eye Yoga, I have retrained my eye muscles and my brain. Once I educated my eyes and brain to the new way, my vision improved . It’s fun and I’m pleased that I am taking care of my long-term vision health. A side benefit is that the stress I had carried in my shoulders from the hours in front of the computer has vanished. You see why I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exercises for Vision Improvement, October 27, 2011
Rebecca Johnson “The Rebecca Review” (Washington State)
This review is from: Eye Yoga – How You See is How You Think (Paperback)

“Frequently people find that once they educate their eyes they do not need to do these exercies often.”

Before reading this book I didn’t realize that the eyes needed to be exercised. Is it really possible to live without glasses and contacts? Well to accomplish better eye health this book suggests that you do the exercises with a partner. Basically your partner moves their finger in front of your face in certain ways. Like one of the exercises is done as follows:

“Have your partner focus on the tip of your index finger, held several feet out in front of the tip of their nose. Tell them to keep your finger in focus as you slowly move your finger in towards the tip of their nose.”

Throughout the book there are plenty of pictures and diagrams to help you do the exercises correctly. This book also has information on nearsightedness, farsightedness, difficulty seeing up close, astigmatism and cataracts. It is interesting to note that around age forty near sight tends to deteriorate. This is happening to me and I’m 44. I have to sometimes hold things further away to read them.

The authors of this book delve into some territory I’m not sure I totally agree with but it is interesting. Like they say that nearsightedness is caused by a fear of being overwhelmed by the big picture. I think of it much more as a physical reality than caused by emotional problems.

So if you are experiencing problems with your sight this might give you some indication as to why it is occuring. The exercises are easy to do but you do need someone to help you with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye Yoga: How You See Is How You Think, April 6, 2011
By Ann Miller
This review is from: Eye Yoga – How You See is How You Think (Paperback)

Eye Yoga is clear and simple, light-hearted and fun, as well as deep and technical. Charts, graphs, drawings and photos walk the reader through each exercise. Best of all, the print in the book is large enough for me to read without glasses! I find the exercises improved my eyesight as well as my balance, reading and sight-brain connection. For me, reading the research, the client stories and the student successes is like reading “chicken soup for the eye-challenged.”
