Yoga complex for eyes
Recommends for maintaining good vision. As the yogis themselves say, if you do it every morning and evening, starting from youth, you can maintain good vision until old age and not use glasses.
Before performing the complex, sit in a comfortable position (preferably on a yoga mat). Straighten your spine. Try to relax all the muscles (including the facial muscles), except those that support the sitting position of the body. Look straight ahead into the distance; if there is a window, look there; if not, look at the wall. Try to focus on your eyes, but without undue tension.
Exercise 1Inhaling deeply and slowly (preferably from the stomach), look between the eyebrows and hold your eyes in this position for a few seconds. Exhaling slowly, return your eyes to their original position and close for a few seconds. Over time, gradually (not earlier than after 2–3 weeks), the delay in the upper position can be increased (after six months to several minutes)
Exercise 2 Inhaling deeply, look at the tip of your nose. Hold for a few seconds and, exhaling, return your eyes to their original position. Close your eyes for a short time.
Exercise 3As you inhale, slowly turn your eyes to the right (“all the way”, but without much tension). Without pausing, as you exhale, return your eyes to their original position. Turn your eyes to the left in the same way. Do one cycle to start, then two (after two to three weeks), and eventually three cycles. After completing the exercise, close your eyes for a few seconds.
Exercise 4As you inhale, look to the upper right corner (approximately 45° from the vertical) and, without pausing, return your eyes to their original position. On your next inhalation, look to the lower left corner and return your eyes to the starting position as you exit. Do one cycle to start, then two (after two to three weeks), and eventually three cycles. After completing the exercise, close your eyes for a few seconds. Repeat the exercises, starting from the upper left corner
Exercise 5 ;Inhaling, lower your eyes down and then slowly turn them clockwise, stopping at the highest point (at 12 o’clock). Without pausing, start exhaling and continue turning your eyes clockwise downwards (up to 6 o’clock). To begin with, one circle is enough, gradually you can increase their number to three circles (in two to three weeks). In this case, you need to immediately start the second without delaying after the first circle. After completing the exercise, close your eyes for a few seconds. Then do this exercise by turning your eyes counterclockwise. To complete the complex, you need to do palming (3-5 minutes).
Exercise 6 Palming. Translated from English, “palm” means palm. Therefore, the exercises are performed accordingly using these parts of the hands. Cover your eyes with your palms so that their center is at eye level. Position your fingers as you wish. The principle is to prevent any light from entering your eyes. There is no need to put pressure on your eyes, just cover them. Close your eyes and rest your hands on some surface. Remember something pleasant for you, so you will completely relax and get rid of tension. Don’t try to force your eyes to relax, it won’t work. Involuntarily, the eye muscles will relax themselves as soon as you are distracted from this goal and are somewhere far away in your thoughts. A slight warmth should emanate from the palms, warming the eyes. Sit in this position for a few minutes. Then, very slowly, gradually opening your palms and then your eyes, return to normal lighting.
