You probably know about the great mind and body benefits of yoga, but have you heard of face yoga?
Popularised by Japan-based Fumiko Takatsu who created the Face Yoga Method, face yoga is now practised worldwide, by anyone looking for more youthful, radiant and lifted skin, or just a quick dose of self-care.
Done properly and regularly, face yoga can even help you achieve balance in your facial features. (Interesting fact: Fumiko founded the Face Yoga Method after a car accident resulted in her having an asymmetrical face. She credits face yoga for improving her facial tone and alignment.)
Closer to home, face yoga seems to be gaining traction. Seeing the positive effects face yoga had on her mum, social media content creator Christabel Chua (@bellywellyjelly) got inspired to learn more and become a certified Face Yoga instructor.
“My mum had a slight twitching in her face that she couldn’t fix with medication, so she tried face yoga. After three years, the twitching in her face stopped and she’s now off medication!” Christabel shares.
