Join us from 1-2pm for an hour of wholesome laughter and playfulness, with simple exercises based on breath and laughter and openness.
Based on Laughter Yoga (it’s not about comedy and telling jokes), enjoy some gentle stretches and laughter games and a laughter meditation!
Suitable for everyone, but if you have health considerations then check out the guidance before attending (Google search on Laughter Yoga Contraindications), or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
Let’s see if we can laugh ourselves happier, healthier and calmer together!
What is Laughter Yoga?
Laughter Yoga is based on the concept of laughing for no reason except that it is good for us!
It is not based on jokes, but rather incorporating into gentle exercise a willingness to laugh, plus yogic breathing (Pranayama).
With a sense of playfulness, this soon leads to real laughter!
The Yoga in Laughter Yoga
The word Yoga means Union – union of mind and body through the breath – and laughing is just a form of breathing! There are no funny poses or stretches, just playful games which encourage laughter, usually followed by a laughter meditation.
Through these we can experience joyfulness, a relaxed body, a calm mind, and social connection: this is being in a state of Yoga.
What is Laughter Club?
Social Laughter Clubs are set up around the world to bring people together for a chance to laugh ourselves happier, healthier and calmer and to connect together.
Come together for a chuckle and some gentle exercise. Laughing helps us rebalance ourselves by decreasing stress hormones, increasing antibodies to fight infections, lowering resting blood pressure, releasing endorphins which give us the “feel good factor”, and improving respiration and circulation.
Do I need to bring anything to take part?
Nope! Just wear comfy clothes.
