Hello Laughter Friends!
Let's transform ourselves through laughter!
Join us for some indoor laughter at the Media Borough Hall Community Room where we will fill this big banquet room with laughter and positive energy.
Laughter Yoga is celebrating it's 21st Anniversary this year and is practiced in 105 countries and at over 6000 laughter clubs. LY is the combination of laughter exercises + deep yoga breathing. Laughter Yoga was created in 1995 by cardiologist Dr. Madan Kataria and his yoga instructor wife, Madhuri.
NO YOGA POSES- but don't worry, this is still considered an aerobic workout. That said, all the exercises are very easy to follow, NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. You will burn calories, you will give your diaphragm a good work out and you will leave feeling great, no exaggeration.
We practice laughing for the sake of laughing to benefit our health. We don't use comedy or jokes to provoke the laughter. Instead, you will be guided by a Laughter Yoga professional into following some fun & simple laughter exercises which include clapping, chanting, singing, dancing, gibberish and of course, LAUGHING. We will have you giggling in no time. Everyone feels uplifted and energized after our sessions.
Laughter reduces the stress, anxiety and depression. Laughter opens up the blood vessels, increases your oxygen levels to the body and brain and boosts the immune system.
Did you know that:
- the Navy uses LY to reduce post traumatic stress syndrome?
- Cancer patients at the Mayo clinic use LY to build up their immunities and to increase T-cells?
- Research at U of MD Medical Center has shown that LY increases the net oxygen to the body, which expands the arteries to help blood flow, helping to regulate blood pressure?
- Laughter brings us the the present moment and helps to reduce chronic pain
-LY helps us face life's challenges and helps us build positive behaviors and resilience?
Get strong, get laughing!
Laughter Yoga is non-religious and non-political. Laughter Club meetings are open to all- ages 12 and up.
If you are unable to perform standing exercises, you can do them seated and we will come to you.
No experience necessary. Everyone is welcome. No yoga poses.
