If I were still living the lifestyle I was accustomed to until I was in my mid-20’s, I wouldn’t be here today, there’s no question. Sugar and hi-carb empty-calorie foods became my security blanket, and eventually took its toll. I reached an unmanageable weight. One conversation changed my life! I lost 100 pounds in the process, and gained a passion for wellness that has never diminished.
Several decades later, I returned to school, the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York City, and became a board-certified holistic health coach. I began to realize that the foods you love, should love you back…and everything you take in is food! At the Institute, we studied about *primary foods: your career, relationships, your exercise...and speaking of exercise, it was during my training at the Institute that someone invited me to a laughter yoga session. When I experienced my first laughter yoga class, after a few minutes, something clicked inside of me, and I said, "I get it", and it really resonated with me and I researched it further. I realized that this is a branch of ‘complementary medicine’ that everyone could benefit from, and I became a certified laughter wellness instructor and founder of Spinner’s Grinners™ Laughter Yoga classes in New Hyde Park, NY, and have been conducting laughter yoga classes as a holistic path to wellness since 2009.
