Holiday Luncheon - Laughter Yoga with Clair Billingsley

Join the Holistic Chamber for a holiday break with Clair Billingsley and Laughter Yoga. Laughter Yoga is major part of the therapeutic laughter revolution.  The science of laughter, "gelotology", has proven that mirthful laughter provides good physical exercise and can decrease your chance of respiratory infections.  Dr. Patch Adams, immortalized in film by Robin Williams, believed that "healing should be a loving human interchange, not a business transaction."  In 1995, Dr. Madan Kataria, a medical doctor in Mumbai, India, started the first ";laughter club".  In the initial meetings, they stood in a circle while one person would tell a joke or a funny story in the center of the circle.  Everybody enjoyed and felt good the rest of the day.  He discovered that our body cannot differentiate between acted and genuine laughter.  Both produce the same "happy chemistry".   Laughter Yoga was born! Laughter Yoga is a blend of yogic deep breathing, stretching, and laughter exercises that cultivate child-like playfulness.  

Claire Billingsley, a certified Laughter Yoga leader and improvisational comedy performer, will join us to lift our spirits and help us get back to our own child like playfulness.  With the stress of the holidays upon is, who wouldn't want to relax a bit, laugh out loud, and raise their energy level to a higher vibration?  We bring this opportunity as our gift of health and happiness as you maneuver through your holiday season! So "Ho, Ho, Ho" this season and get beneficial results!
