No jokes, no yoga kits - at Dubai Pop-up Laughter Club we laugh for no reason whatsoever. Come as you are - office dress is perfectly fine! Our pop-up sessions are based on exercises from Laughter Yoga and Positive Psychology that can be done in any attire and without additional kit. Cost: please pay your own entry fee to the park at the gate. Donations to the host welcome. Each session has a different theme, and you are welcome to suggest new or different topics!!! Themes in this series include: - playing with stress - creatively laughing for new ideas - sharing laughter with friends - laughter fitness challenge WHY SHOULD I COME? We combine exercises from Positive Psychology and Laughter Yoga in a fun way to reduce stress, boost resilience and unleash creativity. Oh, and it is good exercise too! DO I NEED TO BE HAPPY OR FUNNY? No, because these exercises are about fake laughter. So it doesn't matter if you are happy or not. As long as you can say "hahaha", you're fine. WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING? Just yourself and an open mind (and a friend?). All exercises can be done in your normal clothes and no equipment or gear is needed. SO HOW DOES IT WORK? We do a little warm-up and stretches, then we launch into the laughter exercises and finish with a short meditation. All exercises are done standing (but can be done seated, let the instructor know), meditation can be done seated or lying down. CAN ANYBODY DO THESE EXERCISES? Basically, yes - BUT: This is physical exercise and there are times when you should NOT participate or use great caution. For example: - if you have a cough or cold, you should not do these heavy breathing exercises - if you have a back ache or injury, - if you have a heart condition etc. Please review our full disclaimer here to stay safe: https://bit.ly/2zDVAHk If in doubt, speak to the instructor first.
