Benefits of laughter yoga include having lots of fun, boosting the mood, getting in touch with the inner child, being playful, loosing inhibitions, connecting with people and production of endorphins which are natural pain killers, stress-fighters and immune system boosters.

Available to watch from 5pm 31st May until 5pm 7th June https://youtu.be/B2bSakgEQEI Sometimes the Devil is a gentleman... When a seduction goes horribly wrong, Don Giovanni finds himself in a situation he can’t charm his way out of. TIMINGS Introduction: 0 – 4 minutes 43 seconds Act I: 4 minutes 43 seconds – 1 hour 33 minutes 23 seconds Act II: 1 hour 33 minutes 23 seconds – 2 hours 58 minutes 18 seconds Don Giovanni lives a life of debauchery and pleasure, seducing and abandoning women wherever he goes, helped by his faithful servant Leporello. But when a seduction goes horribly wrong, he finally finds himself in a situation he can’t charm his way out of. Don Giovanni, Mozart and Da Ponte’s take on the familiar Don Juan legend, is a work ahead of its time. Colliding comedy and tragedy in a fluid, free-form music-drama, the opera has a breathless energy and impetus that’s impossible to resist – a wild musical ride that takes its audience quite literally to hell and back again. A score of contrasts and extremes includes the beguiling simplicity of Don Giovanni’s serenade and the high-wire virtuosity of Donna Anna’s arias. Gerald Finley stars as the libidinous Don in Jonathan Kent’s sleek, contemporary staging, with Kate Royal as Donna Elvira and Anna Samuil as the vengeful Donna Anna. Don Giovanni was captured live at Festival 2010. Enjoy ☺️
