Vanamala Mayr-Reisch


Certified Face Yoga Method Teacher




When I discovered the Face Yoga Method, I didn’t know that it would change my life. I was searching for a cure to heal a long-term neck problem when a friend told me that she had finished the 28-day Face Yoga Method challenge for the jaw and neckline. She discovered that it had changed her face with the bonus that it had healed her neck pain. That’s when I got all ears and wanted to find out what this was all about.

Now, one  and half year later, after having not only done several Face Yoga Method courses but also finished my certified FYM teacher training under Fumiko Takatsu, the founder of the Face Yoga Method, I am happy to say this was the beginning of a new life for me.

Having worked as a physiotherapist in the neurological sector for many years, and being trained in several alternative healing methods like for example Breath Therapy*,  Colorpuncture** and Vision Improvement has given me a broad foundation to work with people on several levels.

All these modalities enhance the Face Yoga Method and allow me to deliver the best solution for you to rejuvenate inside out and lift your face.

I am looking forward to meeting you at one of my classes or workshops or through a one-on-one consultation in person or via Skype.


*Breath Therapy, Knowing the breath, you know the secret of life! From native wisdom to spiritual practice the breath is recognized as the fundamental force in existence. Specialized breathing techniques may bring about improvements in health, mental clarity and emotional well-being.

**Colorpuncture is a form of light therapy that addresses the root cause of illness and disease. Precisely targeted colored light treatments are used on Acupuncture points and Reflex Zones to provide the cells with the information they need to heal.

Real People. Real Experinces.

You deliver information in a clear, friendly and accessible way, making it easier to remember the steps involved in the exercises. I have noticed a difference since practicing the neck and jawline exercises. Even my husband has commented on how much “smoother” it looks.


Well done Vanamala!  Having this contact felt sooo good.  I think we will appreciate it even more as the time passes when we are in self distancing.   I couldn’t believe how easy it was!  Thanks once again…

Thank you Vanamal, I loved your class and already experience a difference!

Many thanks for this, I am enjoying practicing at home just whenever it pops into my mind to do it!
And I very much enjoyed the online class.

Thank you so much dear Vanamala,
I so enjoyed your online classes and learnt a lot from them.



It was so good to come to your weekend workshop. It really helped put into place some little nuances for me. After I got the right instruction, I find I can do it after all.  After doing a round of one on one with you which was so helpful the workshop really rounded it off. Thank you…

After practising the eye exercises from the last eye workshop for the past few months, I went to my optometrist. He told me that my eyesight and the flexibility of my eyes had improved.

I am looking into the mirror, and I am starting to love myself. I normally have low self-esteem, but now that is changing. Now, when I am in a bad mood, I can change that through practicing Face Yoga.


I so appreciate your teaching instruction and making sure we all had a good time as well. Looking forward to the next workshop … But the biggest joy for me is that I have great jaw function now and no pain.


Thank you for getting this set up Vanamala, I did enjoy it. … Looking forward to the next online class.

I am super looking forward to your class! I have macular degeneration and get monthly injections in my eye – so I could do with all the help I can get.

Thank you so much for your workshop on the weekend, I loved it!!


I much enjoyed and benefited from my sessions with Vanamala. She is a professional, committed teacher with great communication skills and a sense of humor.
Her Face Yoga sessions do not only ‘smoothen my creases’, they also make me laugh.
Thank you Vanamala!
