Laughter is the best medicine! Anyone can laugh at any time for no reason at all. We don't need comedy or jokes - we can laugh while just being ourselves and having fun being playful. When we gather as a group, we'll practice doing just that. Trained in June 2011 as a Laughter Yoga Teacher, I have enjoyed sharing this fabulous practice through laughter yoga classes at The Resiliency Center, wellness retreats, and programs at organizations and universities. Laughter yoga combines laughter exercises with yoga breathing, leaving participants energized, relaxed, and happier. Research has found that we gain the same amazing physical and emotional health benefits from pretending to laugh as we do from genuine laughter. Laughter yoga is based on this premise. After engaging in laughter exercises with the group, most participants find that they begin to laugh genuinely and really have a lot of fun.
So, come join us - reduce your stress, exercise your heart (literally great for cardiovascular health), enjoy time in community, and feel happier. Men and women, girls and boys of all ages welcome. I look forward to laughing with you.
Periodically, I may list laughter yoga club happenings at different locations throughout the area - and at different times during the week and weekend (like evenings and Saturdays). Stay tuned!
