Face Yoga with Debbie
‘Move your face, your body will love you for it.’
Why move the muscles and connective tissues in your body and not the 52 muscles and many ligaments, fascia etc in your face? You will have heard in yoga classes to relax your eyes, your face, your jaw. And you might have heard where energy lines run in our face, head and neck.
By moving the muscles in our face, moving and massaging the skin we bring awareness of stored tension, mimical patterns, emotions and stress to the surface. As with bodily asanas, we can then do something with that. Like with many forms of yoga, relaxing our nervous system is a goal.
And of course, the stimulation of circulation means that you produce natural collagen, by boosting blood flow, oxygen and water through your system. This softens lines and tension and opens up space in our faces. Again, balancing out our nervous system.
Join Debbie in this 2,5-hour workshop from 14:30 – 17:00 and experience what face yoga can do for you. You will learn about our facial muscles, fascia, skin, patterns, emotions, ways to massage, to strengthen and soften the face. Leaving your body, face and mind feeling lighter.
What to bring?
Bring your face, of course. If you've got a gua sha, definitely bring it along. Also, bring a facial oil or any other skincare product you adore. Wear comfy clothes with an open neck and chest so you can access your collarbones and décolleté easily. If you don't have a gua sha, no worries, you can buy one or bring a spoon instead. It's best to skip makeup, but mascara is okay.
