What is a Laughter Club session like?
Our weekly Laughter Sessions in Western Massachusetts are a ton of fun! Robert Rivest 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:) Our Western Massachucetts laughter club / laughter class meets EVERY SUNDAY EVENING @ 4:45 pm to 5:45 pm at Heartsong Yoga Center, 264 North Main Street, East Longmeadow, MA 01028-1815
