EYE YOGA ; Vision without tension

Temps de lecture : | Reading time : 2 minutes

Our eyes are crying out for help. It is a fact ; the long hours spent behind our screens are bad news for our eye health.  The constant strain imposed on our eyes  is an increasing concern in the medical world, and is greatly impacting our general well-being.

If you are suffering from eye tingling, a burning sensation in the eyes, tension headaches, visual fatigue, or dry eyes, it is time to give your eyes a rest and some TLC. You owe it to your overall health.

The eyes are in correlation with various body organs, but also, with our brain. Poor eye health can be a telling sign of various medical concerns. Medical studies are currently investigating links between increasing poor eye health and diseases such as Alhzeimers, the latter is an emerging public health issue.

It is said that the eyes are the mirror to the soul. They witness and translate our emotions, and feelings. Taking care of your eyesight is taking care of yourself.

If looking after our eyes is important to our general health, they are both equally as important. Lifestyle regimen, diets can preserve or impend quality of our vision. Let’s not panic…there is no need yet to eat carrots all day long!

Based on various trainings and studies, this workshop is specifically devised to try and address an increasing health issue yet remains practical for anyone interested in incoporating some changes be it at home or in the workplace.

The workshop firstly looks at the causes of a poor vision and their consequencies on our vision and general health. Different methods are offered to alleviate visual and associated strains.

Then, it looks at how the diet and simple excercises may promote and sustain good eye health. Finally, it investigates  how we can adapt our environment  and adopt new habits to improve visual quality.

This workshop is perfect for those working, studying, playing long hours behind screens.

This workshop does not aim to make medical diagnostic, and should not dispense you from seeking medical advice.

Ayurveda (Ayur = life Veda = science) has, since 1982, been officially recognised by the World Health Organisation as one of the original traditional holistic health system.

Yoga and Ayurveda are said to be sister sciences, both dating 5000 years.

We often get to know Ayurveda through its massages and diet regimens ; those both, are methods used to restore health. There are many other hugely beneficial cleansing techniques ; (Panchakarma, Yoga) to restore balance to the body, mind and emotions).

To fully benefit from what the science of Ayurveda has to offer to our health, it is important to understand what our constitution (Prakriti) and biological humours (also known as Doshas) are.

According to Ayurveda, we are all born with a Prakriti that makes us all unique. Composed of three Doshas ; Vata, Pitta, Kapha– they all have their own qualities.

Depending on life circumstances, the Doshas might be impacted and inherently influence our overall well-being. This is when there is an imbalance, and a ‘dis-ease’ of the body and or mind appears.

Understanding what the Doshas are, how they work and how they can influence our well-being becomes crucial if we wish to self heal. 

When we know what our dominant Doshas are, we are then equipped  to make changes and maintain a physico-emotional integrity.

Anyone with a Yoga practice should tap into this vast Ayurvedic knowledge. Yoga  paves the way towards self-realisation and Ayurveda towards self-healing.

A theory and practical workshop with a featuring rich content to give you the tools to adjust your practice and lifestyle for maximum benefits. There will be time for an Asana (postures) Pranayama (breathing) and Meditation practice adapted to this theme.

A personal ‘Ayurveda’ questionnaire is sent to you prior to the workshop to help you get the most from the workshop.

The Chakras -energy centres- tell us a lot about who we are, including the origin of our physical and emotional pains.
According to Ayurvedic medicine, the chakras are spinning energy vortices.

Buddhist philosopher, Michio Kushi, offers the below explanation :

« Universal’s energy force tends to charge the right side of the brain, whilst the Earth’s energy Force influences the left side. Where those forces collide they form a union called the Chakras or energy centers ».

The electro magnetic flow generated from those centres have an impact on both our physical and emotional well-being.

At the same time, the Chakras are also influenced by our history, emotions and environment. There is a definite connection between the Chakras, energy pathways and our physical body.
Each Chakras is connected to a body part, so whilst Chakras can not be operated on directly, if the flow is impaired, imbalance manifests in the form of discomfort or pain on the physical level?
Reflexologists, acupuncturists, Shiastu practitioner, Reiki masters all work on those energy centres albeit using different means.

In Yoga, the use of proper breathing is key for appropriate distribution of the Prana -vital force- to promote a healthy flow throughout the energetic system.

This theory and practical workshop introduces you to the major Chakras, their correspondences on the physical body, what it means on the physico-emotional level when they are ‘blocked’, what a Chakra energy ladder is, and how each one of us can work on our own Chakras through specific breathing, exercise, food, with the use of gemstones, and colours.

This interactive workshop includes time for postural practice (Asana), supervised breathing (Pranayama), Mudras (hand seals) and Meditation with content dedicated to the Chakras.

A personal ‘Chakra’ questionnaire will be sent to you prior to the workshop to help you get the most out of this workshop.
