I started taking yoga classes again and two days in a row, each instructor said, "Soften your face." Wow, what look was I portraying?
We hold on to stuff and it shows, our face tells a story. We often carelessly age ourselves. Our appearance is distorted by worry, anxiety, confusion, emotional hurt, feeling overwhelmed, panic, rushing, lack of sleep and exhaustion.
Some clues that the instructors must have seen: frowning, pursed lips, squinting, worry lines, squished facial expressions, and clenched jaw.
I am a late bloomer in the fitness world. At the age of 45 I received my group fitness instructor certification and two years later my health coaching certification.
