Funday/Sunday Laugh & Play the Stress Away (Laughter Yoga Club)
Laughter Yoga is a great way to promote healthier habits and living. Laughter is great for the heart and the brain! Come and experience some Laughter Yoga with us! Dear Laughter Club Members and Friends, Feeling stressed or just wanting to add some more laughter to your daily routine? Join us for some stress-busting, invigorating, uplifting laughter! It's time to take control of our inner joy by incorporating mindful laughter into our busy lives. The laughter club is where participants can experiment with their laughter in a safe and supportive atmosphere. We don't perform yoga poses. Instead, we practice different laughter exercises , laughing from our diaphragms. and deep breathing exercises. These simple combinations of laughter, breathing, singing and dancing draws more oxygen into the body, opening up the arteries and also oxygenates the brain to create those happy endorphins. Laughter Yoga promotes wellness and boosts the immune system, energizes, empowers, helps to regulate blood pressure and reduces feelings of loneliness, depression and anxiety. We hope to see you at our next Sunday afternoon- 2-3 pm Laughter Club meeting at our new and larger location at The Unitarian Universalist Church of Delaware County, 145 W. Rose Tree Rd, Media, PA It's always a good idea to arrive 10 mins. early to sign in. Also, please check here for updates for possible weather cancellations or other important notifications.

Join us for some fun yoga laughter exercises to improve your health and happiness! What is Laughter Yoga? Laughter Yoga is a unique concept where anyone can laugh for no reason without relying on jokes or comedy. How do you practice it? We initiate laughter as an exercise in a group but with eye contact and childlike playfulness. It soon turns into real and contagious laughter. Why is it called Laughter Yoga? The reason we call it Laughter Yoga is because it combines laughter exercises with yoga breathing. This brings more oxygen to the body and to the brain which makes you feel more energetic and healthy. Really? The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter if done with willingness. You get the same health benefits. The history behind Laughter Yoga: It was started by a medical doctor, Dr. Madan Kataria from India with just five people in a Mumbai park in 1995. Today there are more than 6000 Laughter Yoga Clubs in more than 72 countries. In 2015, Laughter Yoga will celebrate it's 20th Anniversary. In addition to social Laughter Clubs, Laughter Yoga is also practiced in companies and corporations, fitness centers, yoga studios, senior centers and homes, schools, colleges, universities, cancer centers, prisons, day care centers etc.
