Laughter Workout with Laughter Yoga! A Water Fundraiser at Virgin Money Lo...
Mon 22 May 2017, 12:15 – 14:00 BST
A participatoty workshop and chance to chat and relax. Lets laugh ourselves happier, healthier and less stressed with some games, some laughter yoga, and some crisps. Suitable for eveyone, although there are steps up to the area where we are going.
The laughter session will begin at 12.15pm, last about 45 minutes, and include an introduction to Laughter Yoga, some gentle warm up exercises, and then laughter yoga exercises and a taste of a laughter meditation. There are chairs available for people who would prefer to sit.
We will then repeast the session from 1.15-2pm.
The word YOGA means UNION - the union of mind and body through the breath. Laughter is just a special and specific way of breathing. So we wont be doing strange stretches or need a yoga mat and special clothes.
Come along and be prepared to be just a little silly, somewhat playful, and open to meeting new people and new ideas.
The session is free, but the event aims to raise money for a Clean Drinking Water project in Ghana being run by the Rotary Club of Manchester. In the community of Fievie, in Volta Region, Ghana, water is delivered by 4 standpipes in the town; and the water does not always flow becuase of power cuts so that the water cant be pumped. People can also fetch water from a pond shared with cattle. We aim to improve the water supply and also connect outlying parts of the community. Please come along and make a donation to the project.
