It’s never too late to have a happy childhood!
Why should I go to a laughter class?
You will feel more relaxed after a one-hour session of laughter yoga than you have felt in a very long time. A regular laughter practice will joyfully alter your life.
Who can attend?
Anyone who wants more laughter in their lives–men and women, seniors, kids and teens. Laughter yoga is appropriate for athletes, handicapped people, the physically fit, and the wheelchair bound. The only people who should not attend are those who have a medical condition that forbids aerobic exercise. If you have stitches, for example; or have had recent surgery, or an untreated, chronic disease, you should not attend a laughter yoga class. Anyone who questions if laughter yoga is appropriate for them should check with their personal physician prior to attending.
What happens at a laughter class?
In a typical hour, we will perform playful laughter exercises in a group setting. For instance, we may pretend to toast each other with champagne and then laugh. We will chant and clap, celebrate, breathe deeply, and relax, sometimes accompanied by music and/or singing. We then spend time in laughter meditation, which seems to be everyone’s favorite part of the class. We end the session with affirmations and sharing.
Will I have to stretch and contort my limbs?
Never! The yoga part of laughter yoga is in the deep and rhythmic breathing, called pranayama, we practice in between laughter exercises.
