Are you interested in bringing more joy and vitality to your life? Are you looking for a fun, uplifting way to relieve stress and anxiety while getting a cardio workout at the same time? Join us for Laughter Yoga!
Laughter Yoga is a whole body, well-being workout; it’s joyful and healthy exercise that combines unconditional laughter with deep breathing exercises and light movement. There are no actual yoga poses involved. The “yoga” aspect is the breathing and mindfulness exercises we do. This series is a wonderful opportunity to experience, practice and reinforce stress-reducing, joy-boosting techniques that you can utilize in everyday life.
Laughter Yoga is available to everybody; you can even participate in a chair!
It is not comedy. You don’t need to be flexible or funny.
Why do Laughter Yoga?
Laughter Yoga is incredibly simple, healthy and fun. Here are just a few of the benefits:
- Reduces stress and anxiety
- Supports your immune system, so you stay healthy
- Increases endorphins – your happy chemicals!
- Core muscle and cardio workout
- Boosts focus and creativity
- Flushes stale air from the lungs
- Infuses your entire body with fresh oxygen
- Creates a positive attitude
- Creates connection with others
- Balances your blood pressure
- Releases enzymes to aid digestion
- Reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease
The breath is a powerful tool for health and healing. When you deepen your breath, you calm your body. When you calm your body, you calm your mind. When your body and mind are relaxed you start becoming more aware of the present moment.
What People are Saying
Karen’s Laughter Yoga is magic! It transformed a roomful of grumpy grownups with issues into playful, energetic young people. We left energized, happy and amused. I would recommend this to anyone, regardless of physical ability, age, illness or general crankiness. You will not be disappointed.
I was skeptical at first, but after only one class, I’m a believer!
It was a great reminder that we don’t need to wait for something to make us laugh, we can just laugh anytime, we don’t need a reason.
