The Lion Face!

In the lion face exercise, first inhale through the nose, squeeze your face muscles as much as possible and bring your hands into fists.

This yoga face exercise is to be repeated thrice so that you can alleviate the tension and stress from your face muscles, and also give them an effective stretch!
