Hello my dears, this is Mata. I guess we
all face in one way or another, problems
with the eyes or the eyesight from near
to farsightedness or squinting
or presbyopia or astigmatism. There are a
lot of names on disturbances of the eyes,
Of course, they are coming from a lot
of computer work, from bad lighting, from
poor diet, we all kind of know where they
are coming from! What we will do today is,
we will focus on the eyes and we will
try really to help them, to help them
heal, to help them cure. We cannot really
aim for problems such as glaucoma or
cataracts, which are more serious and
mechanical problems and if you
have problems like these, please ask
first your eye doctor, your eye
specialist to tell you if you can take
this journey with these eight exercises
that we will do, but for all the basic
disturbances of the eyes is very helpful what we will do.
The effect is not going to be
tomorrow, it will take a while, it takes a bit of
perseverance, it takes a bit of
commitment. It’s a very short
sequence that you can do in the morning
or you can do it also in the evening,
if you wish It’s great if you do them under the Sun, don’t look directly at the Sun of course.
And one more thing, which is very very
important, once you have a chance just
try to walk bare feet on the grass or anywhere, any time you have,
because the reflexes of the feet are related to the eyes.
So the exercise we will do, try to do them quietly, gently, not with a lot of stress,
focus on your breath and do not strain the eyes and we can start.
Before that, we will go one second we will
for 10 times, splash with cold water the eyes.
So you put some water, on your hands, and then you splash your eyes, so we can get all the blood circulation moving.
Take care, see you in a minute.
Okay my dears welcome back.
We are ready now with our eyes. Let’s rub the palms of the hands together,
until they become really warm,
very nice! Place the palms gently over
the eyelids without any pressure, very
nice! Try to use the palms and not the
fingers covering your eyes and let’s
breathe here, enjoy the warmth from the
palms covering your eyes, this first exercise which is
called Palming Hands, is relaxing and
revitalizing the eye muscles and
stimulates the circulation, very nice,
beautiful! Release the arms down. Now we will go into the second exercise this is
a funny one, actually it’s called
blinking, just really blink the eyes very
fast, up to 20 times and then close your eyes
for a little moment, take two deep
breaths, release your whole body
beautiful! Let’s do it again
blink your eyes very fast, as fast as you
can up to 20 times, very nice! A lot of
times when there’s defective eyesight,
we are blinking irregularly and
unnaturally and this exercise is helping,
it’s encouraging that blinking reflex. One more time after every exercise, we will go
into capping our eyes. So this is the
second time we are cupping the eyes with
the hands, with warm palms. You can
always stop after every exercise you can
repeat them, like for instance the
blinking you can repeat five times,
the cupping you can repeat three, I’m
just passing through only one or two times.
Let’s go into the sideways viewing,
bring up both of your hands, spread them to the side
I try to see them with your
peripheral vision and try not to move
your head, feel your whole body, feel your
shoulders, down the whole neck, is released.
And let’s go first look at the
left and then go to the right and left
and then right, go on breathing go on
releasing your face,
release your neck, it’s just the eyes
moving, this is a wonderful release of
tension and please always start from the
left, very nice! Let’s release, bring the
arms down, close your eyes and let’s cup
again both of the eyes with the warm plams.
The sideway viewing relaxes
the tension of the muscles, strained by
constant reading, sitting in front of the
computer, watching TV, very nice!
A couple of breaths more and gently release
the hands down and now we will take the
right arm down, just bring your thumb up
just try to find a position of the arm,
of the right arm resting, that actually
you can see it without moving your head
and then the left is the one that is
extending to the side and let’s go
looking down and looking to the left
Try to release the face, try to use deep
breathing, you can inhale looking in the
front exhale looking to the side. This is an exercise for the medial and lateral eye muscles.
And rest, release the arms on top of your
knees, little breath and we go to the
other side. Now we bring the left forward
and the right extending to the side
and once more breathe in and out. This exercise improves also the coordination,
releases the mind, the eyes, that are the window to the mind, to the soul. Let’s give them some time,
some attention, beautiful and
release. Beautiful work!
We tend to hold the breath sometimes,
let’s rub again both of the palms
together until they become warm and bring your two hands
and cup your eyes, very
nice! Feel the warmth
from the healing energy entering, very
nice! Let’s just release a bit the
shoulders, you can just turn from side to
side bring the shoulder to reach the
chin, this is a great release for the
neck and for the shoulder area.
Shake a bit, move a bit your head,
shake the hands forward, fingers released
and let’s go to the next one, which is
the up and down viewing. As you see we
always start with the left, so this time
both of the hands are in front of the body and
I’m just lifting the arm and following with my eyes the movement up and down,
looking straight at the left thumb, very nice!
This exercise is for the upper and lower eye muscles
is balancing, beautiful! Try not to strain the face, try not to strain the eyes,
go as long as you feel comfortable, feel your limits, and do not extend them, beautiful!
As I said, we can always pause and you can do these exercises longer, for now, I’m doing
10 times from the left and 10 times on
the right, use your breath, very nice!
Keep your chin close to your chest, so
you can have your neck long and released.
You can release the arms, rest the hands on top of your knees
and once more cup both of the eyes.
If this position of the cross
legs is too much for you, you can always
extend your legs forward, for me it’s a
a comfortable position, for some, is not
try to find a comfortable position for
your legs, you can always sit on top of
a pillow or a meditation pillow to keep
your pelvis higher than your knees and legs,
keep your back straight and released. Let’s go to the next one which
is a rotational viewing, one more time
the left arm is up and I’m watching the
thumb making big circles in front,
originally you perform these 10 times
clockwise and 10 times anti-clockwise.
Here, I’m just doing five in one
direction and five on the other, as I go
up I inhale and as I go down I exhale.
Well done, keep the breath smooth and
synchronized with the forming of this
Well done! you can also hold the left arm
with the thumb and pointing finger
together, that’s a very powerful mudra
very nice! Now the left is going the
opposite way, as we said five circles in
one direction, five circles in the other
for now, originally is ten and ten.
As you see, I’m not moving my head I’m just moving my eyes, very nice, well done
And a little moment of releasing, bring
both of your hands into the yoga mudra,
you can also allow a large, gentle smile on the face, you do great, these are very
difficult exercises, very nice! Let’s
go now to the right one more time, same
idea, as I go down I exhale and as I go up
with my thumb, I inhale,
eyes are following the movement.
And breathe, this rotational viewing exercise improves the coordination of the eye muscles, very nice!
Well done, release for a little
moment, breathe, shoulders down, release
a bit your face, you can move a bit your
neck, keep the back long,
the legs are released and get ready we
go to the other side, inhale up, exhale
down, try to keep your shoulder down. As
you see the arm is moving inside the
shoulder socket, beautiful! And three more, inhale-exhale down
nice, and last inhale and exhale. Once
more, lets rub
the palms together warmth is here and
cup both of the eyes with your palms.
Beautiful work until now, we are almost
there, we have just two more eye
exercises and we gave some great curing
and healing energy to our eyes, very nice.
Let’s bring a bit the neck from side to
side, I know that the neck can become a
bit stiff during these exercises, let’s do
it four times from side to side, keep
your face released and let’s go to the
side looking to the side and bringing
your shoulder to meet the chin, well
done! And once more to the right, to the
left. Okay, now we are going to do something that we
often don’t do and it seems a bit
funny, so I have the thumb in front and I
just bring my thumb as close as I can to
my nose and I just follow it with my
eyes, very nice, the left arm can rest
into the yoga mudra, it’s crossed eyes
positions I know that we were doing when
we were kids, this is really funny, I feel
a bit weird to do this on the video,
please don’t pause when I am cross-eyed.
And go on, let’s do this five times,
originally you do this ten times.
Well done, this exercise improves the
accommodating and focusing power of the
eye muscles, nice! A little moment of
releasing and guess what? We will do it
with the other hand. Very nice,
try not to strain the eye muscles, try to
be precise but relaxed, the breath is
fluent and is following the movement.
Well done and rub one more time the hands, palms over the eyes, and feel the warmth.
Then bring gently the palms down and
we will go into the last exercise which
is the near and distant viewing. What
we will do is first you will focus the
eyes on the nose tip, which in Sanskrit is the Nasikagra Drishti.
Originally you stay here for five
seconds and then you focus on a distant
object on the horizon for five seconds.
Originally we repeat this process for ten
times. I’m doing it a bit faster, very
nice! If you need to repeat you can
always pause the video and do the
original times. Let’s rab once more the
times together, cap your eyes,
inhale and exhale and with this exercise we’re actually increasing the range of the
movement of the eye muscles, very nice!
Once more rub well your palms,
cup your eyes and if you wish, you can also keep the eyes ope,
you can look inside your palms or you
can keep the eyes closed.
Beautiful work!!! Let’s release the arms
down and that will be it for today! I bow to your light,
