Laughter Yoga
Laughter Yoga Laughter Yoga is an interactive activity that combines improvisational and easy to do “laughter exercises” with yogic breathing and relaxation techniques. There are no jokes and no yoga postures, so anyone can do it regardless of the fitness level. It is easy, playful and fun! After a class many people report feeling relaxed and energized, with calm and clear mind and feelings of joy and delight. Many people also experience more smiling, joy and laughter in their daily life. Laughter is the best medicine! Led by Inessa Love, Certified Laughter Yoga Leader and founder of Honolulu Laughter Club. Suggested donation $10 (any amount is accepted, if you cannot donate anything at this time - come and laugh anyway). Please note: this is a 1 hour class so be on time not to miss anything! There will be a short introduction to laughter yoga in the beginning of the class, so If this is your first experience with Laughter Yoga, please come a few minutes early. If you come late, you won't know why we are laughing! (actually we are laughing for no reason because its fun and healthy, so if you are late, just play along the best you can). Please read "About us" section for more information. If you RSVP and your plans change -please update your RSVP.

Laughter Yoga is a deceptively simple, yet very powerful and potentially life-changing, form of exercise that anybody can do — anytime, anywhere. Its core premise is that your body can and knows how to laugh, regardless of what your mind has to say; Laughter Yoga is a body-mind approach to laughter, as opposed to mind-body. The distinction is very important. Here you do not need to have a sense of humor, know jokes, or even be happy. Laughter Yoga invites you to laugh by choice, not by chance. You start with an intention to laugh as an exercise and quickly the "simulated" laughter becomes real laughter. Practicing laughter yoga helps us to rediscover our innate playfulness that we all had as children and many of us have lost in being too busy, serious and important adults. If you want to have more play and joy in your life, this practice is for you!

Here we don't laugh because we feel happy, we feel happy because we laugh.

Bring an open mind and prepare to have some fun.
