Laughter Yoga

Laughter is contagious and has a powerful and immediate effect on our mind, body and spirit. Our bodies can’t tell the difference between real or simulated laughter. This class involves deep breathing, stretching, clapping, and laughter exercises. 

Our laughter exercises in this class can:

  • Increase blood flow and oxygen to all the major organs
  • Enhance endorphin levels which make us feel uplifted and reduce pain
  • Stimulate immune, digestive, and cardiac systems
  • Reduce stress levels
  • Relax, strengthen, and lengthen the muscles with stretching
  • Help create a laughing community and be fun!

The class meets most Monday and Thursdays. 

Thursday, June 25 at 7:00pm to 7:45pm
