This is great Zoey, I am certified under PilateSystem and Colleen, Karen and Cherry talked about focus.... I have clients that want to close their eyes because they say they want to focus on their proprioceptive functions. But w/o knowing what is correct alignment using focus and gaze then the other can become dysfunctional because vision plays a key role in the ability to sense ones own body in space!

Great observation Brenda. In the yoga practice each asana has a drishti- both an internal and external one. As I started experimenting with telling students where to just look, where the eyes should focus I saw huge changes in their carriage, especially in the way they aligned the head on the spine. It is interesting when you start looking how difficult this can be for some clients!
