commonly-asked-face-yoga-questions1 – Will I get wrinkles by practicing the Face Yoga Method?

No. Some people think that moving face muscles will make more wrinkles. While the wrong repetitive movements can cause  unwanted wrinkles, moving them the right way can prevent and even reduce wrinkles. Since each pose does not take more than a minute and every movement is very specific, it would be quite difficult to make more wrinkles by practicing the FYM. To make sure you are using the right muscles and moving them correctly, practice the FYM in front of the mirror until you get the move right. In my mid 30′s, I developed a very noticeable forehead line above my right eye brow. It was due to my habit of moving the right eye brow every time I talked. After a few months of the FYM practice, the line is gone! Since the FYM helps your face muscles relax, you may notice your entire face is relaxed after the practice. Stress can make more wrinkles on your face than you think.

2 – How often should I practice the Face Yoga Method before I see results?

Some people see results right away, even after one practice they are glowing due to increased blood circulation! But after several weeks of practice most people will see results (see Before/After photos below). Please note that measuring facial changes is very different from measuring body changes which are easy to track with scales and other measuring devices.  The results on the face are much more subtle and appear slowly over time. For this reason, I highly recommend taking Before/After photos to keep yourself motivated.  One of my students, Heather, practiced some of the FYM poses while she commuted by car. After 6 weeks, she saw a friend of hers whom she had not seen for almost 2 years. Her friend told Heather that Heather looked younger than 2 years ago and wanted to know what Heather did! The secret is the FYM!

face-yoga-method-fumiko-takatsu-0503 – My family members have double chins, it is genetic, can I still get results on my chin by practicing the Face Yoga Method?


The answer is definitely yes! A double chin is one of the easiest areas to change despite genetics.  Take the 28 day challenge for the neck and jawline and you will see results. Your parents can be a great indicator of your future face. Study the way they look and work on the areas you want to change. Since you are more aware of the possible problems in the future, you can prevent the problems before they manifest on your face. Observe your parents’ faces and keep your motivation to practice the FYM.

International best selling author and creator of the Face Yoga Method, Fumiko Takatsu’s motto is “change your face, change your life.” “Face yoga is a practice that can physically transform your face, which in turn affects how you feel about yourself.  Once that happens just watch all the other positive changes that start to appear in your life.  My goal with the Face Yoga Method is change from the inside out.”



“I have taught Face Yoga to thousands of women all over the world and to this day one of my favorite things is when someone who has practiced regularly writes in and tells me about her fantastic results.  There is always a physical change but it is the internal change in my students that thrills me the most.”


Thank you so much for sharing your method and changing my life! I have been practicing face yoga for three months now and wish to share with you the fantastic results. I am thrilled with the changes I see and especially how symmetrical my face is again. I do 15 minutes or so daily, of which most is while I am in my car. Your method really works and has become a permanent part of my life.

With a bit of discipline and a 5 minute daily practice results are within your reach.  One of my favorite things about the FYM is that it is one of the only exercise routines you can do in 5 minutes a day and see real results.
