Laughter Yoga is a joy filled workout for all levels of fitness. During this series, we laugh for no reason without jokes, humor or comedy. Instead, we play with laughter games and yoga breathing techniques which have been researched to benefit every body system. People state they feel more energetic, healthy, positive, and peaceful after a LY session. In classes and clubs for the last five years, Heather has witnessed people with diseases such as COPD, Parkinson’s, MS, and cancer find great benefit in breathing easier, better movement and less pain. In research, laughing has been shown to benefit the immune system, hypertension, diabetes, fertility, fibromyalgia, menstrual disorders and may more physical challenges. There is a mental benefit too as Laughter Yoga reduces anxiety and depression due to increases in neurotransmitter release. Many individuals who come to LY are seeking self-care tools, mindfulness practices, natural pain relief, help with their sleep, and energy. Laughing makes us more creative, productive and attractive! If you can’t imagine laughing for an hour, have enjoyed Laughter Yoga in the past with another group, or know you have lost your laugh, join us and sense the transformative benefits of laughter.
