“Sarika is such a gift to the world and one of the most interesting women I have ever met. I will never forget the day I met her. She is an unforgettable woman and so full of great energy. I have spent a substantial amount of time with Sarika as a friend, student and fellow teacher. Her laugh and awesome sense of humour will keep you engaged- she is a mesmerising teacher and draws students in with her sheer love of life and incredible enthusiasm in all she does.
Sarika brings a wealth of knowledge to her students in her most interesting courses on Face Yoga. I am lucky to have her on my team of teachers and as a friend in this life. Simply put, she is a good person, and humble soul! I love Sarika! Namaste, Suzanne."

“Sarika took my community on a virtual trip to Japan by revealing to us the amazing world of sake and face yoga. She was so engaging and pleasant, we had a wonderful time and learned so much! I absolutely love how her passion for both sake and face yoga come through when she speaks about them, and her dedication to highlight the women in the sake industry is commendable. We both share a love for sustainability and it was wonderful to learn of the many sustainable practices for creating sake today, especially by female brewers! I've been practicing the face yoga poses we learned and I already notice a difference after a week. So grateful to have had this opportunity to learn from you Sarika!"

“An Empowering Perspective on Beautifully Aging: I had the pleasure of taking part in two of Sarika’s workshops in Hanoi, Vietnam and left both times feeling positive, having had a good time, learned some things about anatomy and the aging process. In our Western society which is so focused on youth, it’s nice to see an alternative approach to aging which focusses on practical fun exercises which strengthen facial and neck muscles. The theory part, lays out some basic information on anatomy, anthropology of universal facial expressions and how language influences how we use our facial muscles. The second part focussed on practice with some basic exercises to support strengthening vision and addressing wrinkles and sagginess around the eyes, while others exercises focussed on contours around the mouth and neck. As we all know the virtues of physical exercise, the workshop emphasized the importance of facial muscles exercises for all ages. I enjoyed the sessions and time to time find myself practicing a pose or two in the mirror! "

“Face Yoga may look like a joke, but it can bring surprising transformative emotional and physical benefits. Learning to strategically release facial tension, in fact, releases the tension and stress in our minds. It can even soften facial wrinkles! Face Yoga brings a sense of happiness an empowerment through increased facial oxygen and blood circulation, laughter and enhanced facial expressions. Thank you, Sarika Sarika for this great method of relaxation. I feel Fabulous!"

“It is amazing how face yoga help reshaping and toning your face, re-train the muscles to be more relaxed and aware of how much tension you carry in your face. I definitely recommend.

“Dear Sarika, Good evening on a mild winter evening out here in Xindian. I just wanted to write to you, to say how much I enjoyed learning about sake, yesterday. The participants were very happy with your workshop. I enjoyed watching as they became more and more enthusiastic with the new information that they were experiencing. It was fun.

“It was great to participate to Sarika’s Face Yoga workshop! For me it was such an amazing discovery to realize what we can do to tone and lift both our faces and our spirit! Sarika is such a talented woman and simply being in her company makes your day happy and serene! I highly recommend attending her sessions! Don’t miss out!"

“It was really good to join the meaningful and exhaustive Sake Tasting Education Workshop held by Catherine and presented by Sarika san. It is used to said drinking mixture of alcoholic beverages will easily let people get drunk. However, enjoying Sakes didn't let me feel dizzy and uncomfortable. I took Biochemistry course at university, but it was not so interesting as Sarika san taught last Friday. Thanks a lot for her professional and knowledgeable sharing and Catherine's cozy venue at Sol Art Space for gathering as well."
“The excellent preparation made it a most enjoyable experience. I appreciated that the pairing snacks were nicely presented, that the sake sample glasses were clearly positioned on the explanatory paper and that the additional material was concise and useful knowledge. The varied selection of sake tasting enabled us to understand the options when we order in a store or restaurant so it was very helpful. Only problem to buying in a store is the lack of English on the label. I wonder if there is anything that could be provided to help with this."
