Ages: Mostly adults from 18 to 75 (with a few young adults in their late teens).
What is it like? Our weekly laughter session begins with mindful breathing, easy flowing movements, and a few fun vocal warm-ups. This leads to a series of playful, interactive, laugh inducing exercises (that can easily be adapted to fit your abilities, mood or energy level). Our group Laughter is joyfully simulated with full body laughter exercises, clapping, eye contact and youthful playfulness. The simulated laughter soon turns into real and contagious laughter that lifts our spirits, connects us, and carries over into our every day lives. After the exercises we do a little "free laughter" and end with a few peaceful moments of guided relaxation.
No yoga mat, or flexibility needed . . . just wear comfortable clothing and a smile:)
