Walking and the Bates Method


Walking and seeing have the same effect : connection to ourselves and to the world, in the present moment.

First of all, bringing awareness to the sensations in the body, the amplitude of the breath, the quality of thoughts as they simply flow through.

Then the movement of walking brings into play peripheral vision, something opens and central vision becomes more lively. Every new detail triggers our curiosity. The resulting relaxation leads to a visual well-being.

Walking generates a holistic and vibrant awareness of oneself and the world, creating the conditions ideal for the principles of good vision. A morning walk, like a game, can be practised in one’s kitchen or during a long hike.
