But, Shobha Naik, an Art of Living expert, feels that facial yoga is a gimmick and an insult to the holistic yoga. â€œYoga is related to the mind and brings about a sense of peace and calm. It cannot be restricted to just one part of the body. Moreover, yoga is something to do with the inner self. How can you concentrate on just one part of the body?â€ he asks.
Dr Unkule, however, says that facial yoga does help in maintaining the emotional and physiological balance, and keeps the mind calm as well. Since it is important to be healthy, everyone in the 18-60 age group, should practice it, .. he says. Other than facial expressions, Dr Unkule recommends other asanas for keeping one’s skin healthy and rejuvenating. Kapalbhatti, Pranayam, Sarvangasan, Shirsasan, Dhanurasan and Salabhasan are some of the asanas that can do a lot for your face, says he.
So, the next time you see people making faces at you, do not take it personally. For all you know, they might be performing facial yoga to get back that glow on their face.
