Why Take A Face Yoga Workshop?

  • More benefit from instructor guidance

  • Questions you have can be answered immediately

  • You'll easily learn how to implement Face Yoga into your life

  • Meet other people with the same interest of natural skin care

  • It's a great act of self-care

 

There is a lot of great information to share about Face Yoga on how to encourage more healthier and younger looking skin.  Especially with the facial exercises, there are over 70 of them to target certain muscles in the face!  It's similar to going to a yoga class.  The instructor is there to assist you in your poses.  The slightest correction can make all the difference in the benefits from doing the pose.  The same with Face Yoga.  You want to learn how to do the poses correctly to get the most benefit.  The group setting is wonderful because it's great to meet other people interested in natural skin care like yourself!  A Face Care Workshop is also a great act of self-care for yourself!  The benefits not only will improve your complexion, they will improve your overall health!

1st Face Yoga Workshop will be Saturday, June 17th 9:30 to 11:00 at University Hills Library!

Let's take a Face Yoga quiz!

It's pretty amazing to think that our face alone has 43 muscles.  It makes sense to have so many in order to create our many expressions!  

Some of the problems we come across as we age are:

  • If we don't exercise our body, our muscles lose tonality.  Same with our faces because of all those muscles we have up there!
  • If we create an expression often, like frowning for instance, we will start to create unwanted lines.

For example, take a look at my photo to the left where I'm concentrating/frowning.  Look at the lines it creates on my forehead!  Now, imagine holding that expression for much of the day.  No wonder lines are created that way!  

That is where Face Yoga comes in.  You will learn how to tone your face for a firmer complexion, how to become more mindful of the expressions that are causing those aging lines and learn healthy lifestyle tips that will greatly benefit your skin from the inside out.  By attending my workshops or 1-on-1 sessions, you will learn how to incorporate Face Yoga so you can age gracefully and naturally.  Let's start working those face muscles!  Sound good?

 

Why Do Face Yoga?

The beauty industry wants us to buy expensive beauty creams and invasive procedures.  What if I told you there is a safer, cheaper, and natural alternative?  That is the answer to why do Face Yoga!

Incorporating exercises to tone the facial muscles, becoming mindful of expressions that create wrinkles, and learning about healthy habits for our complexion is what Face Yoga is all about, a natural skincare program!  Join me in my workshops to learn more about this exciting approach to aging gracefully and naturally.  

There is so much wonderful information I want to share, you might want to consider getting the "Best Package Ever" which includes two Face Yoga workshops you attend and a 1-on-1 Skype(or FaceTime) session.  This way, you learn many of the Face Yoga poses to tone facial muscles and learn how to incorporate many healthy lifestyle tips that will improve your skin from the inside out!  By attending the two workshops and one 1-on-1 session, you will learn how to incorporate Face Yoga as a practice into your skincare regime.

Woo-Hoo!

 
 

It's official!  I am a CERTIFIED Face Yoga instructor!!  See? >         

I passed my final assessment by doing a Skype session with the founder, Fumiko Takastu today.  I was nervous to sell myself to the woman who created this great skin program!  Luckily, Fumiko was very encouraging and taught me well and this final step went just fine.  I am honored to be one of the first students to become certified outside of Japan.    

This green light means GO!  I'll be putting the pedal to the metal because I am ready!  So, buckle up and enjoy this adventure with me!

Tomorrow, I'll provide more information on my Face Yoga workshops, 1-on-1 sessions and dates available.  Thank you everyone!  I'm excited!!!!

 

 

 

How I Got Into Face Yoga

Many people look into the mirror and suddenly are surprised at what they see.  " Wow, I look older than I feel.  What happened?!"  Well, that was me last year.  So, I started to do some research on how I could solve this problem.  I certainly wasn't going to have Botox or plastic surgery done.  So what were my natural options?  

That is when I came across Face Yoga.  It totally made sense to exercise your face muscles like you would the rest of your body.  The first video I found was this one with the beautiful Rhanjana Khan.  I loved the 7-8 exercises she shares, but I wanted more!  That's when I came across Fumiko Takatsu's website, FaceYogaMethod.com.  It is jam-packed with information about her Face Yoga Method she developed!  What really intrigued me was the fact I believed a lot in what she was saying.  For instance, Fumiko really believes in treating your skin well by not only doing Face Yoga, but also eating healthy and also implementing mindfulness into your life.  YES, that all maked total sense to me!  What a total new concept of skincare:  a holistic approach from the inside out!

This was fall of 2016 and I immediately implemented Face Yoga into my skincare regime.  Taking before and after photos helped a great deal in measuring the improvements.  Take a look for yourself:

 

Look how much my complexion is more even toned after just 3 months!  I sound like a commercial right?  But it's true!  I have less dark circles under my eyes, my eyes look brighter and the areas next to my nose is less meaty.  I think I look younger.  More importantly, I look more alive, more confident and more happier.  BTW, I only have eyeliner and mascara on in both photos.

Toward the end of 2016, Fumiko announced that she was going to certify instructors outside of Japan for the first time starting 2017!  I was loving her natural method of skincare and felt like this was my calling!  I told Steve, "This might sound strange, but I really want to become a certified Face Yoga Instructor!"  My forever supportive husband's reply was, "Go for it!",  

So, here I am about to become an official Face Yoga teacher very, very soon!  Not to worry, I will continue my love of painting.  In my next blogpost, I'll talk about the "WHY" of doing Face Yoga.  Hint:  there are so many benefits I want to share with you!

Bringing Face Yoga To Denver And Beyond!

 
 

Hello everyone!

Most of you know that I have been taking a course to become a certified Face Yoga instructor these past months.  So, what is Face Yoga and what does it mean to be a certified Face Yoga instructor?

Specifically, the Face Yoga Method was developed by Fumiko Takastu of Japan over ten years ago!  Her approach to natural skin care that includes exercises to tone face muscles, awareness of expressions that cause wrinkles and lines on our face and practical lifestyle habits that encourages transforming your beauty from the inside out. 

What does it mean to be a certified Face Yoga Instructor?  In Japan, Fumiko certified over 400 people to teach her Face Yoga Method.  This is the first time she is offering certification outside of Japan!  You would think a bunch of people from the States would jump at the chance since Face Yoga is a new “thing”.  However, most of my fellow students are from around the world like England, Vietnam and Mongolia even!  Isn’t THAT cool?  In the meantime, I’m waiting for the last step of our certification process-a one on one skype interview with Fumiko.  I'm hoping for it to happen in the next week or so.  I am so ready to teach all of you Face Yoga!

This natural approach to face care is something I really believe in.  I want to empower people with this fantastic way to take care of your skin and also take care of your SELF mentally and physically.  It’s a beautiful way to age gracefully and naturally.

If you know anyone who might be interested in Face Yoga, please share my website with them.

Stay tuned for my next blog post.  I’ll talk about how I got into Face Yoga!  Until then, check out my website and see the June workshops I have scheduled HERE.  Thank you everyone!
