The confession 2012: the very challenging year 2012 was a very interesting year for me. After a couple years of hesitation, I finally started my English version of the Face Yoga Method program. It has been so exciting but also challenging in some ways.

First of all, one of the challenges was the language. As many of you know, I am from Japan and English is not my first language! It was very scary to start a Face Yoga Method project in English. Also many poses look very funny and silly and I share them with people around the world!? I had to be ready physiologically to do so. I really had to push myself out of my comfort zone.

Just like everything else, we must expand our comfort zones before we can grow.

So I did.

Another challenge was time.

Finding time for my work and balancing the family and personal life is not easy. But everybody has 24 hours a day, so no more excuses. I decided to make time and enjoy what I do. The outcome?

Satisfaction and happiness!

I am so glad that I started the Face Yoga Method program in English. Through this program, I have met you and have seen so many changes on so many people. I absolutely love that. Thank you so much. So, here is what I would like to ask you. I would like to hear from you what kind of area you have the most concerns. What kind of program you want to see? What kind of poses you want me to tell you. Do you want a new 28 day challenge? If so, what area?

Send me your comments/requests to

I may not able to meet all of your requests right away but I will do my best! Most of all, I would like to thank you for all the support, encouragement and love you have sent me in 2012. Without all of you, I could not make it this far. Wishing you a happy and peaceful holiday! And I will see you in 2013!

I am launching my video membership site this month, January 2013 and it will cover everything!  I am so excited.
