What is Laughter Yoga?

heart Developed by Dr. Kataria in 1995 as an incredibly
fun and effective “wellbeing workout,” Laughter Yoga has
become a worldwide phenomenon practiced in 70+ countries. 
Delight in a variety of laughter exercises, yogic breathing,
and laughter meditation, guaranteed to release stress and
tension, open your heart, calm your mind, boost your health,
and joyfully infuse your life with an abundance of peace and
positive energy.  Laughter Yoga does not involve jokes, humor,
or comedy, and many studies have proven simulated laughter
has the same truly remarkable psychological and physical benefits
as "real" laughter (and simulated laughter often quickly becomes
wholeheartedly "real" laughter).  Practice the enlightening
art of spiritual play, and learn to laugh for no reason!

What does a Laughter Yoga session look like?
heart We begin by taking time to center, ground, arrive in
body, mind, heart, and spirit, and become present to
receive all of the many gifts and blessings available to
us during the Laughter Yoga session.
heart We warm up with light stretching and breathing exercises.
heart I lead the group through a variety of delightful, playful, and
heart-opening Laughter Yoga exercises, connecting
with and enJOYing yourself, others, and each present moment.
heart We ground in between exercises to chant "Ho Ho Ha Ha Ha."
heart We join in a Laughter Yoga meditation and allow
laughter to flow freely from our hearts in an
infinite wellspring of uninhibited joy.

*Dressing comfortably is encouraged.

It is impossible to participate in
Laughter Yoga and not feel entirely
uplifted, energized, and renewed. It's an unavoidable biological response!

"My experience with Christine and Laughter Yoga was
truly amazing to say the least!!!  From the first night,
I was energized, revitalized, and pleasantly surprised at
the physical exercise I received.  In the four weeks I
was in the class, I had more loving, laughing, and
intoxicating energy than I could have ever expected!!! 
I felt alive, inspired, and connected with my inner playful
child!!  I am excited waiting for the next classes to start!!!"

Becky Lamb

"Christine has such a beautiful spirit about her and while
she facilitates the Laughter Yoga sessions, you can't
help but feel the warm, loving and accepting space
she provides while doing this!  Laughter Yoga is a way one can
feel completely free to express themselves in any way they
choose in a fun and nonjudgmental way.  Laughter Yoga
helps one to explore their own creativity and imagination
in playful exercises.  Laughter Yoga is really for ANYONE who
wants to just 'let go' and revisit the joy of life's pleasures."
