Face Yoga Cards For Cheekbones

 

Greetings, Yogis, Yoginis, and Yoga teachers. I’m George Watts, a BWY yoga teacher and creator of the Face Yoga Card Deck and Online Yoga Lesson Planner.

Face Yoga Exercises Muscles Targeted Welcome to our 30-Day Face Yoga Challenge!

It’s a well-known fact that our faces tend to lose tone and elasticity as we age. While it might not be the most pleasant reality, we all acknowledge that it will eventually impact us. Why not embrace the 30-day Face Yoga Challenge as a natural solution?

Dedicate some time each day for the next 30 days to caring for your beautiful face and work towards holistically combating the effects of ageing.

Today, we’re diving into exercises designed to sculpt and tone your cheek muscles, enhancing your cheekbones.

But first, you may be wondering what Face Yoga is.

 

What Is Face Yoga?

 

What Is Face Yoga

 

Below is roughly what I told my students the other day when introducing them to Face Yoga…

“Alright, Yogis, we’re gonna take this yoga thing to a new level today. We’re gonna work out muscles we didn’t even know we had…in our faces. That’s right, we’re gonna do some Face Yoga.”

Now, you might be wondering what the heck Face Yoga is.

Well, it’s like regular yoga, but instead of a Downward Facing Dog Pose, we will do some upward nostril flares. Instead of using the Warrior III Pose, we will do some intense eyebrow raises.

Face Yoga is all about working out those facial muscles to keep your skin looking tight and toned. Let’s face it (forgive the pun): everyone wants a face that looks toned and tight.

Below are three Face Yoga Cards to sculpt and tone your cheek muscles, enhancing your cheekbones. For the other 47 cards, get my Face Yoga Card Deck.

Now that you’ve become super smitten with your Face Yoga exercises, you might be scratching your head and pondering,

Hold up, what’s the science behind Face Yoga?”

Well, buckle up, my blissful beings, because I’m about to sprinkle some face-stretching wisdom that’ll make your chakras shine! So, let’s dive into the mystical world where your facial muscles get their groove on and uncover the science behind the art of facial enlightenment!

 

What is the Science behind Face Yoga?

 

What Is The Science Behind Face Yoga

 

Below is roughly what I told my students in a yoga class where I taught many of the 50 Face Yoga exercises within the Face Yoga Card Deck.

“Alright, Yogi Bears (yes, I do call them that sometimes, if I’m feeling particularly weird), listen up because I’m about to give you the low-down on the science behind face yoga. And let me tell you, it’s a lot more than just making funny faces in the mirror.

So here’s the deal: when you do face yoga exercises, you’re stimulating the muscles in your face, just like when you work out the muscles in your body.

When you stimulate those muscles, you increase blood flow and oxygenation to the area, which helps to tighten and tone the skin.

But that’s not all!

Face yoga also helps to reduce tension in the face, which can lead to fewer wrinkles and a more relaxed look. And when you’re less stressed, you’re less likely to furrow your brow or clench your jaw, which can also cause wrinkles.

Face Yoga is like a little spa day for your face.

You’re giving those muscles a workout, increasing blood flow and oxygenation, and reducing tension. And the best part?

You don’t even have to leave your house or put on yoga pants to do it!

So next time your partner asks you why you’re making funny faces at them, either don’t let on so that they develop some sort of complex, or tell them you’re doing your daily face workout. They’ll probably join in!

Let’s delve more into the science of facial yoga by exploring the five main muscles targeted by facial Yoga exercises within the Face Yoga Card Deck.

 

What Facial Muscles are Targeted by Facial Yoga Exercises?

 

Face Yoga Exercise 5 Muscles Targeted

 

Facial yoga can target various muscles in the face and neck. Some of the muscles that facial yoga exercises can target include:

  1. Frontalis muscles: These muscles are responsible for raising the eyebrows and can be targeted by exercises that involve raising and lowering the eyebrows.
  2. Zygomaticus major muscles: These muscles are responsible for smiling and can be targeted by exercises that involve lifting the corners of the mouth.
  3. Platysma muscles: These muscles are responsible for the appearance of the neck and can be targeted by exercises that involve tilting the head back and tensing the neck muscles.
  4. Buccinator muscles: These muscles compress the cheeks and can be targeted by exercises that involve puffing them.
  5. Orbicularis oculi muscles: These muscles are responsible for closing the eyelids and are targeted by exercises that involve blinking and squeezing the eyes shut.

Facial yoga exercises can help improve blood circulation and muscle tone in the face and neck, which can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. However, it’s important to note that the effectiveness of facial yoga exercises in achieving these goals is still a matter of debate among experts.

Before we get too carried away with our face yoga exercises, let’s talk about the possible risks.

 

What are the Possible Risks of Face Yoga?

 

What Are The Risks Of Face Yoga

 

Now, before we get too carried away with our face yoga exercises, let’s talk about the possible risks. I know it’s hard to believe that making silly faces could be dangerous, but hear me out.

First of all, you could end up with some serious face fatigue. I’m talking about muscles that are so tired they feel like they’ve run a marathon. So, if you start to feel like you can’t move your face anymore, maybe take a break and dunk your face in a sink filled with cold water.

Another risk is that you could accidentally scare your dog or partner with your crazy face contortions.

And finally, there’s the risk of looking too good. If you get the Face Yoga Card Deck and start doing Face Yoga daily, you could look so amazing that people will stop recognising you. You might have to carry a photo of your pre-face-yoga self to prove it’s you.

So, there you have it, my Yogi bears, regarding the possible risks of Face Yoga. But don’t let that stop you from trying it out. Just be careful not to scare anyone, and make sure to take plenty of selfies so you can track your progress.

Next, I will tell you about some possible mistakes to avoid in Face Yoga.

 

Common Mistakes to Avoid in Face Yoga

 

Common Mistakes To Avoid With Face Yoga

 

Alright folks, listen up, because I’m about to tell you about some possible mistakes to avoid in Face Yoga. And trust me, you don’t want to make these mistakes.

First off, don’t get too aggressive with those facial muscles. I know it’s tempting to go all-out with your tongue juts and eyebrow raises, but if you push too hard, you could end up knackered (overly tired), and nobody wants that.

Another mistake to avoid is doing face yoga in public. Trust me, it will scare everyone who glances in your direction, and you’ll discover that people don’t come within a 10-yard radius of you. So, keep your facial Yoga behind closed doors where only your dog and partner can see you doing it.

And finally, don’t forget to breathe. We’re all so focused on our facial muscles that we forget to inhale and exhale. But trust me, breathing is important. Not only does it help you relax, but it also helps to oxygenate your skin and keep it looking healthy.

So there you have it, my Yogi bears, some possible mistakes to avoid in Face Yoga. Remember to take it easy, avoid doing it in public, and breathe. Your face (and your reputation) will thank you.

Next, I wrap things up with my conclusion on the “heady” subject of facial yoga (yep, that was another face pun).

 

George’s Conclusion

George's Conclusion

Well, Yogis, I hope you’ve learned a thing or two about the magical world of Face Yoga today. And remember, whether you’re looking to reduce wrinkles, tone your facial muscles, or make silly faces in the mirror, Face Yoga has got you covered.

But let’s not forget the most important lesson: don’t take yourself too seriously. We’re making funny faces. So, it’s similar to Laughter Yoga in many ways. Laugh and enjoy the ridiculousness of it all.

And who knows, maybe someday we’ll see Face Yoga as an official Olympic event. I can picture it now: Yogis from around the world contorting their faces in ways we never thought possible.

But until then, keep on stretching those facial muscles, my Yogi friend. And don’t forget to smile because laughter is the best medicine, and it’s great for your face, too!

Oh yes, I almost forgot.
