Laughter Yoga is a unique & gentle form of exercise in which we combine breathing techniques from yoga with laughter exercises. This brings extra oxygen into the body, creates feel good hormones called endorphins, thereby creating a joy cocktail that makes us feel more energetic & healthier! Laughter Yoga connects us to our innate, playful nature. When we allow ourselves to be playful, laughter flows like a fountain! It can be practiced standing or sitting in a chair by EVERY body, regardless of age or fitness level. If you can breathe, you can do Laughter Yoga! Laughter Yoga has been scientifically proven to: release stress; boost the immune system; exercise your heart & lungs; elevate mood; improve circulation; reduce symptoms of arthritis, asthma, allergies & pain; and foster feelings of kindness, joy, forgiveness & love. Laughter truly is the best medicine!

Special Note: No yoga mat is needed, and this program is open to attendees of all ages! Laughter Yoga can be practiced standing or sitting, regardless of fitness level. If you can laugh, you can do Laughter Yoga. It’s best to do Laughter Yoga on an empty stomach.

This program is presented by Dana Kaplan and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
