Developing Visual Resilience: How Modern Life Overtaxes Your Eyes and What You Can Do About It
There is an epidemic of myopia in our world, but it doesn't have to be this way. Eyes CAN heal, and they don't have to lose their ability to focus as you age. Dr. Marc Grossman and Daniel Orlansky will give you simple and practical strategies for visual healthcare to relax your eyes and lessen visual stress. Your eyes will thank you as you follow along in an easy practice of acupressure eye massage, yogic breathing, and feel-good techniques to help your eyes be resilient and strong.
In This Session:
- Natural, evidence-based practices from the East and West to relax your eyes and lessen visual stress
- The 4 “B’s” of eye healthcare that can be practiced anytime and anywhere to rejuvenate your eyes
- Underlying causes for vision problems created by life in the 21st century
According to Daniel Orlansky, MA, ERYT-500m, there is a creative infinity in constant flow among, through, and with all things. This flow has no beginning or end; it is unity with all. It is the moment before we breathe, and the breath we take. It is the moment after, too. When the breath flows, so does life. The arts of yoga and Qigong can bring us to this feeling of wholeness and peace, to this flow of unity with all there is; they are paths up the same mountain, from which the “one moon” of higher consciousness can be experienced in its full brilliance. I have studied yoga, meditation, and movement practices for over forty years, and have taught since 1992 in Europe and America.
A graduate of the Boston Shiatsu School, he's the originator of Meridian Yoga, which uses yoga postures to open and balance the 14 fundamental meridians of the body. Presently, his classes meld the unique and complementary strengths of yoga and Qigong, creating a unified practice that balances the flow of life force in all its aspects, with breath as the foundation that unites both systems.
His academic education led to a master's degree in Expressive Art Therapy/Dance Therapy from Lesley University and he has been a visiting lecturer in movement studies at Tufts University. Currently, he's the director of Boston University’s Yoga Teacher Training and lead yoga teacher training and retreats worldwide.
