How long has eye yoga existed?

文字稿

This is one of the many eye yoga exercises Subhan is teaching his students today. Rubbing your hands vigorously together to generate energy and covering your eyes to block the light getting through, he says, helps ease out eye strain. Eye yoga has existed for centuries.

這是肖布汗今天教給學生的眾多瑜加練習之一。用力揉搓雙手產生能量,遮住眼睛阻擋光線通過,他說,這有助於緩解眼部疲勞。眼部瑜伽已存在了數百年。

It began as an ancient practice in India and is mostly taught alongside other forms of yoga. Some students suffer from eye problems. Others are here to take a much-needed screen break.

它源於印度的一項古老的練習方式,並多和其它形式的瑜伽一同傳授。有些學生患眼病,而其他人來這裡是為了讓長時間看各種電子屏幕的眼睛休息一下。

Eye yoga student
So I am short-sighted in one eye and long-sighted in the other. And so I think my vision isn’t very clear. And then after the practices, everything seems much more focused.

眼部瑜伽課學生
「我一隻眼睛近視,另一隻眼睛遠視。所以我的視力比較模糊。但做完操之後,一切似乎都更清晰了。」

Can eye yoga really help improve vision or go as far as to cure eye problems?

眼部瑜伽真的可以幫助改善視力甚至治好眼病嗎?

Subhan Nair, Eye yoga teacher, Isha Hatha Yoga
It’s more on anything that’s focus issues. According to, you know, regular science, once you get these kind of issues, you can’t reverse them. But in the Yogic system, they’re saying you can reverse them.

肖布汗‧奈爾 眼部瑜伽教師 艾沙哈達瑜伽中心
「它主要治療視力清晰度的問題。根據常規科學,一旦出現這類問題,你就無法逆轉它們。但在瑜伽的體系裡,這是可能的。」

Though Subhan and some of his students say eye yoga helps improve eyesight, there isn’t actually any scientific evidence to prove this.

雖然肖布汗和他的一些學生說眼部瑜伽有助於提高視力,但事實上並沒有任何科學依據可以證明這一點。

Amir Hamid, Ophthalmic surgeon, Optegra Eye Hospital
They can’t correct eye problems in terms of refractive error. So in terms of the need for glasses for distance vision, the need for glasses for reading, there’s no way you can anatomically change the shape or the function of your eye, by performing an exercise.

阿米爾‧哈米德 眼外科醫生 Optegra 眼科醫院
「它不能矯正眼屈光不正的問題。所以,如果你需要戴眼鏡才能看清遠處的事物或近處的讀物,那你是不可能通過做眼保健操而從生理結構上改變你眼睛的形狀或功能的。」

If eye yoga was an alternative to curing or correcting eye problems, eye doctors would have to look elsewhere for a career. But while eye yoga doesn’t do that, it certainly helps your eyes feel more relaxed.

如果眼部瑜伽是治療或矯正視力問題的另一種方法,那眼科醫生就得另謀生路了。但雖然眼部瑜伽做不到這點,但它確實能讓你的眼睛感到更放鬆。
