It’s the newest trend in the fight against the signs of aging. This latest weapon is facial yoga, Happy Face Yoga to be precise. It was created by Gary Sikorski, a man of 50 who looks a lot less, who said he just got “tired of looking gray and old.”

“Does it really work?” Patti asked instructor Gary Sikorski.

Gary Sikorski, who is certified in yoga facial toning, gives his Happy Face workshop in the Atlanta area. In a phone interview, Mr. Sikorski sounded, well, quite happy. He had just seen a graduate of his course, and, he said, “she had been practicing a lot on her own, and she looked amazing! The corners of her mouth were turned up, she looked younger and was absolutely glowing.”
The latest six-session series, he said, drew 25 seekers of his guidance for stimulating 57 muscles in the face, neck and scalp. Mr. Sikorski sent them home with a 33-page booklet, a CD and fact sheets on nutrition and vitamins.
