Facial Yoga Proven To Work




In a recent study conducted by Northwestern University and published by JAMA Dermatology, it was found that facial yoga exercises do bring a youthful vitality to the face. The study was taught by Gary Sikorski of Happy Face Yoga, who has been teaching his facial exercises program since 2006. His Happy Face Yoga class will be coming soon to TriYoga Boston, in Waltham.

Individuals with sagging jowls or winkled foreheads without the financial wherewithal or desire to spend large sums on medical intervention now have an affordable and natural alternative in Happy Face Yoga. The program uses proven techniques combining fundamental yoga practices of awareness training, relaxation and conscious breathing with dynamic facial muscle resistance exercises.

“Past class participants have referred to it as non-surgical plastic surgery,” says instructor Sikorski. “Amazing changes occur in the face in three or four weeks.”

Classes meet once a week for four weeks, and Sikorski will also be offering a one-time, two-hour informational seminar. In addition to facial yoga exercises, information on the muscles of the face, vitamins and supplements, nutrition and other aspects of facial care will be discussed.
