Laughter Yoga

 

Laughter Yoga (Hasyayoga) offers the gift of learning to laugh as an exercise. By combining  self-triggered, or unconditional, laughter with yogic breathing, anyone can learn to laugh for no reason--without jokes, humor, or even a good mood. Scientific evidence supports many medical benefits of laughter, for body and mind. You can choose to make a commitment to laugh, heartily, for your health, every day.

    I've never done yoga but I am interested in learning. As a beginner, is it ok if I attend?

    Laughter Yoga is rooted pranayama, yoga of the breath, rather than asana or poses. We use unconditional laughter exercises, rather than humor, to engage in the biochemical benefits of laughing. It is fun and healthy.
