Laughter Yoga is a great way to meet new people, laugh, brighten your life and to enhance your health and overall well-being.
It is the creation of a medical doctor, Dr. Madan Kataria, who studied the positive effects of Laughter and created
a world-wide laughter wellness movement,celebrating it’s 22nd Anniversary this year.
Practiced in 106 countries and at over 6000 laughter clubs throughout the world, Laughter Yoga has helped countless practitioners improve the quality of their life.
Laughter Yoga is not to be confused with a traditional yoga class. In Laughter Yoga , we perform NO YOGA POSES.
Laughter Yoga is the combination of laughter exercises and deep yogic breathing . We breath from the diaphragm.
Participants learn how to laugh for no reason at all, not based on jokes or comedy.
These exercises bring up the heart rate, so it is considered aerobic exercise.
We calm down again using our breath and the final restorative meditation at the end of a session is relaxing and yet invigorating.
Participants walk away feeling up-lifted and energized.
Laughter Clubs around the world are FREE and open to all.
