Education on the practice for newcomers 4:30 pm -5:00 pm
Laugh Club 5:00 pm- 6:00 pm
The club is part workshop and part play
We will be engaging in laughing, clapping, playing, breathing deeply and stretching our bodies gently and We will not be using jokes, humor or comedy. "Pretend Laughter" is initiated through exercises as directed by the Laughter Leader. Through laughing, playing and making eye contact, the laughter quickly becomes real and it is VERY contagious! Participating in Laughter Yoga will leave you feeling energized, happy, connected to one another, and less stressed.
We do NOT need to be 'happy', or 'in a good mood' to participate in Laughter Yoga. You do not need to bring any yoga mats or wear special clothes come as you are.
If we choose to practice laughing and playing regularly, we will find ourselves able to use the tools of laughter and play in many different areas of our lives. We like to say, "If you can laugh at it, you can live with it." Laughter does not solve problems, but it does serve to dissolve the mental blocks that keep us from finding creative, positive, effective solutions to our problems. Let's all agree to leave jokes at home as humor is subjective. This means: what is funny to one person may be un-funny or even offensive to another person. We will gather to laugh together as an exercise and to get to know one another as individual people after the laughter session.
