Facial Yoga & You?

facial_yoga_tout2.jpgSometimes you just can't believe that this stuff makes it in to the mainstream press.

Facial yoga? 

Surprise Me!
Widen your eyes, as though surprised, but try not to wrinkle the brow. Focus on a point in front of you for about five to ten seconds. Then repeat, four times.

In New York City, Annelise Hagen, a devoted yogi, former actress and author of The Yoga Face: Eliminate Wrinkles with the Ultimate Natural Facelift, runs a weekly facial yoga class. Hagen says she started to develop her face-based technique when she realized that her students, mostly well-to-do, well-educated professionals, were practicing yoga but getting Botox injections during their lunch breaks. "It didn't seem to be in the spirit of yoga to me," she says.

You know what doesn't seem to be in the spirit of yoga to me? Misleading people for profit. Botox works. I know. I've seen it at the plastic surgery center i work w/in Florida. They specialize in everything from Botox to lipo to breast augmentation in Miami. Here's something else. I didn't need to see the positive results of Botox to know it works. I mean, something like 4,000,000 procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2006. It obviously works. I have a friend who likes to watch QVC and the other home shopping show. I've seen something on there called "FacialFlex," which is the gadget you put in your mouth that supposedly helps you to work up muscles in the face to keep wrinkles away. You want to keep wrinkles from forming? Live in a dark basement, and never show any emotion of any kind. Or, get Botox.

I love to do yoga, I normally try to do it everyday. I like this! this is something new for me I have never hear the yoga face but I am going to try it. Thank you

I work with a plastic surgeon who performs BOTOX Cosmetic and tummy tuck in st louis and about any other surgical or non-surgical procedure or treatment to help patients prevent or reverse the signs of aging. And you know what? There's always something new that's supposedly "Better than BOTOX" (with a ? mark, of course). If there is, I haven't seen it. I really can't believe this facial yoga really works. I'm not going to be out looking to change industries anytime soon because of it, that's for sure.

I really have no idea that there is such as thing as facial yoga. This is my first time to know this and makes me fee surprised. I like to learn yoga and I think it is one of interesting form of exercised.Many women nowadays are prone to wrinkles and even do cosmetic surgery and I think it could help a lot of people know that yoga is important in medicine and also in health and beauty.
