To begin yoga eye exercises, sit comfortably in a straight back chair, feet flat on the floor, one hand resting on each thigh. Close your eyes and slowly take a deep breath through the nose. Hold the breath for a few seconds, then slowly exhale through the nose.
With eyes closed, focused your gaze at the space between your eyebrows. Hold for two normal breaths. Open your eyes and blink a few times, then close and repeat the inward gaze.
With head facing forward, slowly move your eyes as far to the right as possible. Hold for five seconds, then return eyes front. Now move your eyes as far to the left as possible. Hold for five seconds, then return your gaze forward. Repeat the right-to-left movements three times, then close your eyes for 10 seconds and rest.
Keep your head facing forward and move your eyes up, as if trying to look at the ceiling. Hold for five seconds, bring them back to the starting position, then move your gaze down, as if trying to look at the floor. Repeat three times, then close and rest. Remember to keep your head perfectly still throughout these exercises.
Slowly roll the eyes clockwise, in a complete circle. Repeat three full circles, then reverse direction and make three counterclockwise circles. Close your eyes and bring them to the forward position.
Rub the palms of your hands together vigorously for 15 seconds to generate heat, then place them over your closed eyes, with the heel of your hand resting on your cheekbone. Rest with eyes covered for one-half minute.
Make an ‘X’ with your eyes by moving them diagonally from the extreme upper right to the extreme lower left. Repeat three times, then rest with eyes closed for a few seconds.
Make the letter ‘U’ by first looking up to the extreme right, then dropping the gaze down, then repeat three times from left to right. Close your eyes, rub palms together, and cover the eyes for one-half minute.`
