Meet Pnina Zoharah
Vision Specialist & Healer
Vision Specialist & Healer
Pnina Zoharah is an internationally known healer/teacher, neuromuscular bodyworker and movement instructor.
Pnina found her passion and her gifts as a healer as the result of a difficult family experience. In 1988 her mother became very ill with multiple sclerosis (M.S.). Pnina started to search for ways to help her mom heal. This lead her to the Center for Self Healing where she trained with Meir Schneider, who had healed himself from blindness. Since then, she expanded her study with many other techniques including energy healing, spiritual counseling, hands-on healing, emotional release work, dance therapy, qigong, and pilates training.
Pnina's rich knowledge and her many years of experience in the body-mind connection, helped her form her own "Movement and Spirit" self-healing technique and Yoga For the Eyes workshops.
Pnina enjoys integrating movement, meditation, energy healing and nature into her workshops and private sessions.

Why Natural Vision
5 Simple Principles for Vision Self-Healing
Take the healing of your eyesight into your own hands by learning 5 simple principles for
self-healing. Your body and your eyes are interrelated.
Poor posture, neck and upper back tension can all affect your vision.
You have the power to heal your vision simply by waking up your awareness, changing your habits
and connecting to your eyes with love.
Here are the 5 simple principles for vision self-healing:
1. The Brain, the Body and the Eyes - Our eyes are the closest organ to the brain. They even share the some of the same tissue. Any change in brain chemistry and function affects our eyes and then the entire body. If we believe that thought and feeling can affect our body, we can see that our eyes can also be affected. Stress, happy or sad events, tension in the neck and shoulders all influence circulation to the muscles and nerves in and around the eyes. By studying Yoga for the Eyes, you will learn to train your body and your eyes to work holistically for better vision and overall wellness.
2. Movement Therapy for Your Eyes - Awakening your kinesthetic movement can increase circulation to your eyes. Conscious, slow, gentle movements are designed to reprogram your movement patterns and body posture with healthy habits. Together with visualization this will reawaken nerves and muscles that have gone numb. By increasing the communication between your eyes and your brain you will increase your coordination and balance. Your entire body will reach its full potential of movement.
3. Light and Dark Meditation and Exercise - Our vision depends on the ability of our eyes to observe light and to relax in the dark. Yoga for your Eyes will teach your eyes to create a better relationship with the light of the sun and with the dark of the night. Learning the Sun and Dark meditation and visualization will relax your eyes and awaken unused muscles and nerves. The contrast between light and dark relaxes your eyes and helps you to increase your ability to observe more light and therefore see better.
4. Self-Massage - Blinking is the way eyes massage themselves. The use of computers and cellphones causes our eyes stress because they don’t blink enough. Our peripheral vision becomes very limited. By massaging the tissues around our eyes, shoulders and neck, increasing your circulation brings relaxation to our eyes. The techniques of Yoga for the Eyes wake up the nerves and tissues in and around your eyes. This retrains your eyes to be more active and function better.
5. Nature and Vision - People who live and work in nature have better vision. Nature is a healer. Being outdoors with wide vistas where your eyes are constantly shifting between near and far views, helps you develop good peripheral vision. This also gives you a break from staring at the small screen or sitting too long on a chair. Nature gives your body and mind a chance to release tension and stress. You connect to natural wellness. For this reason Yoga for the Eyes is mostly done in nature. Movement and meditation experienced in nature deepen your connection to shades of light from a vast spectrum of colors. This results in clearer and better vision.

What Participants Are Saying...
Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined 6 hours comfortably without my glasses especially given that I've worn glasses since I was 6 and have yet to find someone with a higher prescription than mine! The post-workshop shifts have been spectacular. I can actually hear my body/soma again. The exercises you gave us are quite the workout for the nervous system but oh so easy and pleasurable to do. I find that they easily integrate into my daily routines and I actually enjoy doing them. I'm looking forward to continuing with the certification with you. Much love to you for sharing your amazing gift of healing vision on all levels with us. — Erika
"Pnina’s simple, active self-care movements, have improved my vision in a 1-day workshop — besting other vision classes by a long shot as the improvements stuck! Directly after class, I could read all the overhead signs and see all the product labels without squinting or leaning closer. Going to the grocery store, I drove without my glasses safely as night was falling because I could SEE! My posture has improved. And my happiness! I’ve incorporated the tapping in bodywork with clients and have seen amazing results: deeper relaxation and embracing life more. I am thrilled to know that “this is it” as my vision stays improved/improves."
— Stephanie Wilger of “Health Happens”
"Great Yoga for the Eyes workshop that came at just the right time. Needed my physical energy flow unblocked which Pnina was able to facilitate where others had not. Being given permission to rest prior to feeling tired has increased my awareness of how so very important that is for my overall health. Time to stop this computer stuff and rest my eyes."
— Thanks, Rodney
"Pnina’s Yoga for the Eyes workshop is amazing. I was definitely seeing clearer and sharper by the end of class. My body was relaxed and loose…no eye strain at all! The exercises were easy and fun to do. Pnina’s approach is revolutionary. I recommend it highly!”
— Norma Novy
"Thanks, Pnina for a wonderful session on the beach in Jaffa. At the beginning of our previous session, I could only read the top three rows of the eye chart, and at the end of the session, suddenly I had a moment of clarity, when I could read down to the bottom row. That moment has stayed with me and given me confidence that my vision will improve. With your guidance I am beginning to understand that vision is related to emotions, and if I want to improve my vision, Thank you."
“I was diagnosed with MS disease in 2014, and as a result my I lost my peripheral vision. The doctor predicted degenerative blindness, but fortunately I met Pnina, and we began working on the beach with movement therapy, meditations and emotional release work… suddenly, not only did my vision get much better but my balance and body got stronger. With Pnina’s help I changed my life style and started my days relaxing and healing on the beach.
Thank you Pnina”
Dearest Pnina, Thank you so much for sharing your immense passion and expertise with us at your Yoga For Eyes Workshop! As I shared, it was very 'eye opening' to be able to go all day without my progressive glasses and see well enough to enjoy the wonderful Redwoods and all it's surroundings! Your many processes that we did throughout the day made a big difference and really left me feeling empowered to continue to have the benefits for my eye's well-being! I didn't even need to use eye drops during the day, which typically I use numerous times daily! I have a new appreciation and gratitude for my eyes that take in all of the beauty and life experiences through them! With so much Gratitude!
I attended an all day workshop with Pnina in Yoga for the Eyes in the Forest at Roy's Redwoods. I was so impressed with Pnina's guidance and leadership of this workshop. She is a skilled healer, full of information, wisdom, and compassion. Although the workshop was focused (no pun intended) on the eyes, the day stressed the importance of regulating the nervous system and the connection of relaxation to eye care and health. We did a lot of fun exercises including a short hike, working with art materials (with eyes closed), breathing, movement exercises, noticing nature, and more. Previous to attending this workshop, I had a series of 10 sessions once weekly to help with anxiety. I highly recommend Pnina as a teacher and healer.

This session is usually done in nature by immersing yourself into shades of light and dark. You will connect to a variety of space distances and the natural healing properties of nature. This will help your eyes to observe more light, develop sharper peripheral vision, and relax each individual part of your body.
This valuable method will help you increase the communication of your brain function with the rest of your body, so you can move your body with balance and full potential. This session can also be done long distance by phone, online by Skype/Facetime/Zoom, and in person
