About Laughter Yoga:
Started in 1995 by a medical doctor in India, Laughter Yoga is based on the belief that voluntary laughter provides the same benefits as spontaneous laughter. Scientific studies even show that 10 minutes of laughter is the equivalent of 30 minutes on a rowing machine. Combining laughter exercises with deep breathing, laughter yoga is a positive way to start your morning and will help you lead a more joyful and stress-free day. Open to all ages and abilities, no prior yoga experience, special clothing or equipment is necessary. Come in jeans, t-shirts or in work clothes. You’ll leave feeling younger, healthier and happier!
