Balloon pose and benefits:
The video shows Malaika, wearing a black cropped top and workout tights, demonstrating the steps to do the three asanas of Face Yoga. She does the first asana – Balloon Pose – by inflating her mouth and keeping two fingers on her lips to keep the air from blowing out. Then she withdraws her fingers and exhales. The ball pose is a “must-have pose for the facial muscles as it helps with blood circulation,” the post said.
Face tapping pose and benefits:
Malaika did the second asana – Face Tapping Pose – by gently tapping her entire face and neck with her fingertips. According to Malaika, “tapping gives a natural, red glow to the skin, as it stimulates blood circulation.” It also prevents aging and wrinkles.
