Is there a single person not looking for more health and happiness in their life? But instead of fostering these good feelings and outcomes, many of us are stressed, depressed, sleeping less, experiencing more negative thoughts and feeling isolated. If this sounds familiar, Laughter Yoga is for you.
Laughter Yoga, combining unconditional laughter with pranayama, yogic breathing, is a revolutionary idea sweeping the world. A complete workout and wellbeing exercise in one, Laughter Yoga was developed by Dr. Madan Kataria, an Indian Medical Doctor, and is practiced in more than 100 countries.
In this class, laughter is initially simulated as a physical exercise while attendees maintain eye contact with others in the group. In most cases this soon leads to real and contagious laughter. No yoga mats are needed – just be ready to laugh lively and find peace in 90 minutes.
This class is hosted by Dana Kaplan, Yoga You Smile instructor, and is presented by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
