As a certified instructor of the Face Yoga Method I have been teaching face yoga since 2018. There are as many as 70 poses designed to tone the muscles of the face and neck, enhance circulation and breath, lift mood and reduce stress.
I’ve previously worked as a public relations consultant, writer, editor, mediator, office manager, pharmacovigilance associate and marketing business owner. Coaching face yoga and weight loss have been my most enjoyable endeavors. I’ve been married since 1982. For the last 20 years my husband and I have lived in Charlottesville, Virginia. We have a son and a daughter and are delighted to be grandparents.
HOW I FOUND FACE YOGA:
Have you ever wondered when you look in the mirror, who is that person? I did. I saw a face that was losing its vitality. At rest I was looking sad and serious, but my mood was happy and vibrant. I decided to investigate plastic surgery, injections and other ways to create symmetry and reduce facial sagging. I really didn’t want to spend the money on treatments and I was afraid I might end up looking fake, not to mention disappointed by the results after enduring a lot of pain and expense. Nevertheless, I consulted one plastic surgeon and two skin specialists, tops in their fields. They all had similar ideas on how they would treat my issues. The choice was simple: Either continue as is, letting gravity take its course or invest a whole lot of money and downtime for procedures that were temporary fixes lasting about 3-4 months just to have them done again – IF I liked the results.
That choice was not sitting well with me. Continuing my research I came upon the Face Yoga Method. This appeared to be an intriguing alternative to needles, surgery, etc. Exercising my facial muscles made so much sense to me. So I began practicing Face Yoga. And I got so much more than I expected! I felt empowered! I didn’t have to be a victim of Bell’s Palsy (which affected half of my face), nor did I have to go through the pain and expense to fight the ravages of gravity. I found that in doing the exercises I let go of the concerns I once had. And the best part is seeing the revelation and rejuvenation in others as well.
You don’t have to settle for surgery or shots to improve how you look and feel. Once you learn Face Yoga the poses are yours for life.
