Description

LAUGHTER YOGA uniquely combines laughter exercises with ancient Yoga breathing techniques in a way that is accessible and fun!

WHEN WE LAUGH, WE CHANGE. AND WHEN WE CHANGE, WE CHANGE THE WORLD AROUND US...

The Well was traditionally the centre of the village and a place of meeting. A place of coming together. A place for stories and wishes and celebration... And of course, a place providing for our basic survival need for water.

The LAUGHTER WELL is similarly a gathering place. Where we celebrate all that unites us and where our need for joy and laughter in our lives is met. With water we survive and with laughter, we thrive!

FUNdamental to the work we do at THE LAUGHTER WELL to bring more joy, confidence, resilience and overall well-being into our lives is LAUGHTER YOGA. A system of exercise incorporating Laughter Exercises and Yogic Breathing techniques, based on a philosophy of peace and compassion for ourselves and the world.

Regular practice of LAUGHTER YOGA teaches us the power of unconditional laughter to support and encourage us in being all that we can be - all that we truly are.

As conventional wisdom tells us, LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE and daily doses of LAUGHTER YOGA promote health & well-being on a number of levels. LAUGHTER YOGA IS SUITABLE FOR ALL (with a few contra-indications where for example recent surgery or some untreated conditions exist) has scientifically proven benefits for reducing stress; boosting the immune system; as a cardiovascular workout and for lifting depression; cultivating a positive outlook on life; reducing pain and promoting healing. Phew! And if that wasn't reason enough to practice... LAUGHTER YOGA brings people together in a spirit of joy & childlike playfulness - and goodness knows we need more of that in the world!

Let the laughter flow and see where it transports you!

A partnership event brought to you by Libraries Unlimited, Active Devon and Age UK to reach the most socially isolated in North Devon, also open to all.

Part of the Unlimited Potential Project, funded by Arts Council England and Delivered by Libraries Unlimited.
