Take a mini-vacation from your usual routine and discover the art of laughing unconditionally "for no reason"... No jokes, comedy nor even a sense of humor are required. Easy, fun group activities and deep belly breathing release our stress, bring out our childlike playfulness and spontaneity, and release our "feel-happy hormones".
All that's needed is to show up with a desire to laugh. Soon, the contagious group laughter jump-starts your "giggle button". The more we laugh...the more we laugh! And the more joy, zest and peaceful well-being we feel and have to share with our friends, family and the world.
~ Laughter is the Best Medicine! ~ Research has shown that laughing deeply for fifteen or more continuous minutes provides a wide variety of health and well-being benefits.
"I enthusiastically recommend Barbara's LaughterPlay Yoga to anyone who would enjoy expressing their joy-filled inner child. She is a very skilled facilitator who helps bring out the best in us, and creates an atmosphere of innocence and complete acceptance. I haven't laughed this hard and for so long in years! We all had a blast!"
Thank you, Bobbi Quana Ryals.
