Actually, I've been creating and perfecting face exercises for over 10 years.
At first, for myself, because I was left with a lopsided eye area after a car accident and was looking for ways to make it more symmetrical. Soon enough it evolved into a project bigger than just me.
Word about the Face Yoga Method spread and hundreds of people began practicing. Before I knew it, I was giving interviews on TV, graced almost 100 Japanese magazines, worked as a corporate sponsor for several major brands, and since 2006 I've trained over 600 Japanese Face Yoga certified teachers.
I’ve helped students incorporate the face yoga method in combination with other markets such as tango, yoga, psychology, cosmetology, fitness, kinesiology, medicine and many others. It’s a method that I've now certified hundreds of students in.
They are not only using it themselves but have turned it into full time businesses.
I have spent more than ten thousand hours mastering a method that changed my life and that had only impacted a tiny handful of people and that didn’t sit well with me. I knew I wanted my legacy to be bigger.
I felt like I had a duty to do something more with my life and I knew that certifying face yoga teachers would allow my method to impact people on a much larger scale, so they in turn could impact the lives of their students and have this massive ripple effect.
