Your health is a laughing matter!

Today’s society promotes being overly busy and stressed, at the expense of our health and hindering true connection with others. Join us for an uplifting, energizing and fun PLAYshop that will delve deeper into the practice of Laughter Wellness than our typical classes, cultivating even more stress relief, joy, community, and connection.

Laughter Wellness utilizes simple movements, laughter, deep breathing exercises, group activities and mindfulness to tap into your inner joy and create connection with others. The PlayShop is family friendly and you can even participate from a chair.

The simple act of laughing does more than put a smile on your face; it brings about short and long term physical changes that benefit your entire body.

In the short term:

  • It reduces tension, increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles
  • It activates your parasympathetic nervous system, creating a calm state of being and decreasing the harmful effects of stress
  • It releases endorphins, or happy hormones, that leave you feeling good and full of energy

In the long term:

  • It boosts your mood by helping fight symptoms of depression and anxiety while improving your overall sense of happiness
  • It relieves pain by aiding your body in creating its own natural pain relievers
  • It bolsters your immune system by lowering the stress hormones that suppress the immune system and by supporting your lymphatic system
  • It helps you better handle problems by making you feel happier about yourself and aids in coping with tough situations or hardships; you’ll be better prepared to respond to life, rather than react to it.

In this experiential PlayShop you will:

  • Participate in fun laughter activities and deep breathing exercises. These release endorphins and create T-Cells to produce immediate and profound boosts to your mood, immunity, health, creativity and confidence levels
  • Learn how laughing for no reason can lead to being happy for no reason
  • Discover why prolonged intentional laughter is being recognized as a form of complementary medicine
  • Experience how laughter creates connection, contributing to the social health of society and the world
  • Tap into your inner-child’s playfulness and boost your aliveness, vitality and joy

Cost: $20 before December 31.  $25 after and at the door.
