Please use the search function, as this has been discussed immensely.

Practicing with closed eyes seems to enhance "body memory" which makes the motions more natural and inherent within you, and not visually based, which means you have to pay attention to what your are doing.

it all starts to become second nature after many hours spent, it is very good practice.
welcome to new discoveries.... there are so many more and i hope you let us all be apart of it.

Nor need one seek the aura in the face,
As love unveils the beauty of all things."
