Description

In laughter yoga sessions we will teach you to laugh without a reason, without relying on humor, jokes, or comedy. We initiate laughter as an exercise using eye contact and childlike playfulness. It is called Laughter Yoga because it combines laughter exercises with yogic breathing. This brings more oxygen into your body and brain making you feel more energetic and healthy. Laughter is great exercise and a great stress reliever. Laughter is contagious!
