The famous saying goes ‘laugh and the world laughs with you’, so we thought we’d give it a try with laughter guru Connie Costa, Founder of Laugh and Live Well.
You are invited to laugh your cares away at her 30 minute Laughter Yoga sessions during lunchtime on Thursday 24 January. No experience or equipment is required – just bring a sense of fun, a playful attitude and an open mind!
Laughter Yoga is a process that allows you to laugh, even if you don’t feel like it, without jokes, comedy or humour. It allows you to experience the ripple effect of laughter through a series of laughter exercises, rhythmic clapping and deep breathing exercises.
Benefits of Laughter Yoga include reduced stress, increased energy levels and improved mood. Laughter exercises tend to be playful and interactive. They often involve an action and simulated laughter, for example in the ‘handshake laughter exercise’ you will shake hands, make eye contact and laugh as you greet different people in the group. With eye contact and group dynamics, laughter tends to become contagious.
Laughter Yoga doesn’t involve yoga poses so there is no need to wear exercise gear, however comfy clothes are advisable – you will be standing up for a large part of the class and be invited to lie down (on the mats provided) for a short period at the end of the class.
