laughter yoga

Tuesday, 3:30-4:30 p.m.

Laughter yoga is about playing, having fun, feeling good and relaxing. We laugh in groups as a form of exercise and through eye contact and childlike playfulness, the fake laughter becomes real and contagious.

It’s a scientific fact that the body doesn’t know the difference between a fake laugh and a real laugh, so when we laugh we receive a happy chemical release and create more ease and space in our body and mind. .
