Laughter yoga is a form of low-impact cardio exercise, preventive (lifestyle) medicine and a complementary option to the established therapeutic strategies for physical, mental and emotional health. We do a series of laughter, breathing and playfulness exercises with many scientifically documented health benefits.
It offers a versatile, reliable and easy to use, multidisciplinary and holistic approach to health care that combines various elements from other wellness modalities into a smooth and fluid blend.
"Laughter yoga is a combination of deep controlled breathing, stretching and forced laughter that engages your and improves lung capacity." Dr. Madan Kataria, MD
At Spinner's Grinners™ Laughter Yoga Class, we do simple laughter-based activities that help heal body, mind and spirit. I incorporate my knowledge of holistic health, reiki or qigong into every class. All activities are done either standing or sitting. We will not be laying on the floor. No fancy movements necessary.
Laughter yoga brings anyone into a place of unconditional acceptance. At laughter yoga sessions, inhibitions fall and people are able to access a space of unconditionality - childlike playfulness - childlike acceptance of themselves and those participating. What distinguishes laughter yoga from other meditative practices is that this unconditionality occurs within the context of relationships. Laughter Yoga is supported by powerful tools derived from the Western psycho-analytical methods as well as Eastern spiritual laws. It can help you to stay in high spirits when life throws up challenges. It can enhance your ability to laugh and smile when dealing with negative emotions, situations and negative or difficult people. It makes you heal better, feel better, boosts resilience, and so much more! I advise participants that - just for a while - they can leave worries, stressors and any other troublesome thoughts behind. But for a while, we will play, laugh a lot, and generally feel good.
My classes are geared to Men, Women, Seniors (ages 13-80). Class duration is 70 minutes long.
DISCLAIMER: As with any other form of exercise, laughter yoga is not intended to substitute for the medical advice of physicians. Be advised not to take risks beyond your level of experience, aptitude, and comfort level. A participant should regularly consult a physician in matters relating to his/her health and particularly with respect to any symptoms that may require diagnosis or medical attention.
