Event description

Description

This is Laughter Yoga, it has nothing to do with yoga and it is all about laughing. What do you mean I hear you say??……well let me explain.

Laughter Yoga is about laughing for no reason without judgement or the need for comedy, jokes or humour. As children we laugh often but as adults we tend to rely on other sources, be it TV, friends, partners or colleagues. Laughter Yoga gives you a safe space to reconnect with your own laughter.

During the session, we will be warming up with rhythmic clapping followed by Laughter Yoga exercises. This involves acting out daily activities using laughter as the language,(as we do not use the spoken word) this is then followed by a deep breath before moving onto the next exercise.

Every session is different with group sizes ranging from 5 to 25! We all use eye contact during the exercises as this promotes genuine contagious laughter and group connection.

During the close of the session we end with a laughter meditation, this may involve humming, breathing or laughing.
Now I know what you're thinking,'This all sounds a bit strange!!' to be honest it is much easier to participate in a session than for me to try and explain it!!

The great news is that when we do the laughter exercises we benefit from a huge chunk of goodness for our body, mind and general well-being. You will discover how laughing elevates your mood, boosts your immune system and increases your energy.

Laughter re-connects us to our childlike qualities which maybe long forgotten and here’s a little science fact….the body cannot tell the difference between real and fake laughter, so we reap all the health benefits just for laughing.

Laughter Yoga is non-religious and non-political. The intention is to gather together for the sole purpose of laughing.

We all need a good laugh and if we cannot laugh at ourselves then we are taking things way too seriously. Why don’t you come along and experience this fun packed insightful evening and see for yourself? This is a wonderful way to reap the health benefits, unleash your inhibitions and meet like- minded people.

We laugh every 1st and 3rd Thursday monthly. Doors open at 6.55pm for a 7pm start and the session finishes around 8pm. The cost is £3 which is paid on the evening. There is no dress code so wear whatever you feel comfortable in.

Look forward to laughing with you
