In a medical article I recently read, it was noted that stress increases the possibility of getting a heart attack by over 50%. An estimated $300 billion are spent every year in the USA alone for stress-related compensation claims.
Laughter Yoga is a very cost effective way to reduce the ramifications of stress and the resulting health complications from having too much stress! HO HO hahaha
So please consider coming this Friday to a Special Laughter Yoga Event at the Equinox in Greenwich Village! You don't have to be a member! Just download the FREE 3 day pass and bring along with you! The New York Laughter Yoga Meetup Group It starts at 8pm, so those of you who work late or are coming from a distance will have time to get there.
Laughter is the Best Medicine. Humans were designed to laugh. Laughter is nature's stress-buster. Laugh yourself healthy! We all know that laughter makes us feel good. A regular 20 minute laughter session can have a profound impact on our health and well-being. Laughter is gentle exercise. It fills your lungs and body with oxygen, deep-clears your breathing passages and exercises your lungs. This is really important for people who don't get regular aerobic exercise.
If this is something you'd like to explore locally, RSVP for the next MeetUp day & time, and a way for you to be contacted. For this experience there is NO LIMIT to the amount of people who may attend (unless specified otherwise), and no previous knowledge of yoga is required, no mat is needed, just come as you are, wear flat shoes, and be willing to laugh 'for no reason at all'!
