Meet Melissa Chapman

Face Yoga Health Coach

Hi, I'm Melissa.

The creative mind behind Taste N Dash. While I’ve spent the last few years sharing my insights as a health and food blogger, I now focus my energy on something that has completely changed my life – face yoga. This incredible technique not only reverses the signs of aging but also give you a boost of confidence to pursue a healthier life overall.

I first started discovering the healing power in nature while studying Foods and Nutrition. After a few different career changes and struggles with weight and stress, I came back to the importance of all-natural self-care. This refocusing has changed my life. At 48 years old, I wanted to find a way to address fine lines and wrinkles that were appearing on my face. Instead of getting chemicals injected into my skin, or having invasive surgery, I discovered the rejuvenation of face yoga.

AGe with grace

Did you know that you can age with grace while still having fun, enjoying the foods you love, and looking great along the way? With all of the restrictive diets and beauty regimens in the world, it may not always seem like that’s even a possibility. However, after spending the last several years focused on health, nutrition, and the power of natural methods like face yoga, I am thrilled to share my knowledge and empower other women!

A New Found Purpose

I share all this to spread hope and inspiration that making changes can be empowering! These practices can alter your life in the best ways at any age, if you’re ready to try something fresh. I am so happy you are here and I cannot wait to see how face yoga, along with other self-care, create positive improvements in your life. No matter what stage of life you’re in, this new journey can begin today!
