Many of us are looking for ways to maintain and even improve our vision. Drawing from such diverse fields as brain neuroplasticity, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and natural vision improvement, Martha Rigney and Jane Battenberg make important connections between the eyes and brain that can reawaken deep brain capacities through simple eye exercises.

In "Eye Yoga: How You See is How You Think," you will find easy-to-follow diagrams and photographs that help you perform the exercises with ease, whether alone or with a partner.

"Eye Yoga" is written in an easy, light style, offering a depth of experiences and references. Introducing advanced research, Martha and Jane reveal essential insights concerning the eye/brain and TV-watching, video games, the effects of colors, stroke recovery, visualization therapy, the irises' ability to reflect our innate personality, and many other topics. Prepare to be entertained as your eyes are opened to new possibilities.
