face time
That’s funny. A rundown of the anatomical targets in yoga technique doesn’t seem to mention exercises for the face.

So using yoga as an alternative to plastic surgery facelifts is, much like other forms of meditation, more of the mind than the body.

Want to sculpture and narrow your nose? Alternate breathing out of each nostril, Revita-Yoga teaches. Have crow’s-feet? Open the eyes wide to smooth the lines. As pale as the winter sky? A dose of downward dog can add color to the complexion while oxygenating the skin.

On the other hand, what about that old rule of thumb about not making weird, straining faces, lest your mug get stuck that way? It could throw off that desired “balanced facial symmetry”. But on the plus side, it would result in an instant moment of zen — which, ultimately, any good yoga regimen should accomplish.
