BEING ALERT ABOUT YOUR CHILDREN MEANS STAY OPEN MINDED

We are introducing Tratak for young children in our Heritage of India classes. Too often very young kids are being asked to wear eye glasses because they cannot focus. Once again dependency on externals seem to be the instinctive remedy in the West. Yeh, great sales for the eye glass industry right? Young parents are falling for this unaware of what self help ways are available. Tratak, a form of yoga for the eyes can be started pretty earlyto avoid and alleviate this condition in most children. Early signs of arthritis in children ! This is due to the increased level of hayaasana that children are subjected too. The number of hours that children have to sit in hayaasana position in chairs at school, in the car, at the dining table, doing homework, at the PC etc all contribute to this. Encouraging floor positions, gymnastics and active sports on a regular basis can help.
