About Face Yoga

Explaining The Magic

Face yoga is a completely natural alternative to anti-aging remedies. By practicing a series of facial exercises, correct posture and breathing you can learn to tone the muscles beneath your skin and increase facial circulation and blood flow which results in more youthful and radiant complexion. From a young age our emotions are written on our faces, we furrow our brows, wrinkle our forehead and raise our eyebrows to express excitement or shock, tighten our jaws when we are stressed and more. Over time these repetitive unconscious movements form the lines and wrinkles on our faces. In addition, by unknowingly overusing some muscles and under using others, our faces can become asymmetrical. aging is not merely a skin condition. The skin is attached to the facial muscles and consequently when the muscles become weak and less firms causing drooping and sagging. The only way to remedy this is to work these facial muscles in a structured and tailed way to improve and maintain perfect muscle tone for you.

Benefits of Face Yoga

FAQ

When should I practise Face Yoga ?

Ideally twice a day; the first thing in the morning and right before going to bed.

Do I have to do all the exercises everyday?

For the best results, I highly recommend doing all the poses every day. However, if you have a specific concern, you can practice specific poses for problem areas.

My face feels strange after practising Face Yoga is that normal?

It is absolutely normal! In fact, that means you are moving the face muscles you are not used to moving. Imagine any sport you try for the first time, how does your body feel? Your body and brain are getting new stimulation. If you feel too much pain or intense sensation take it easy on the poses and gradually increase the resistance or frequency of the exercise.

How long before I see results from Face Yoga?

Some people see results right away, even after one practice! But after 2 weeks of practice most people will see results (see Before/After photos). Please note that measuring facial changes is very different from measuring body changes which are easy to track with scales and other measuring devices. The results on the face are much more subtle and appear slowly over time.

What if cannot move my face muscles ?

Practice, practice, practice! Practice makes perfect. Remember the first time you rode a bicycle without a training wheel? Once your body learns the movement, you will never forget. The same thing can apply to your face muscles. If you are not used to moving some muscles on your face, it may take time to “feel” the movements.

How long do I have to do each pose?

Each pose description explains this. Some take 3 breathes and others takes longer/shorter.
