About

Laughter is the best medicine and this laughter yoga class is designed to show you how to receive some of the amazing health benefits laughter has on the mind and body.

Laughter is scientifically proven to reduce stress, anxiety, depression and increase physical and mental energy levels. Laughter actually boosts your immune system keeping you stronger and healthier overall. When we laugh together we feel more open and accepting of ourselves and others, what a fun way to build new friendships.

The class will start with gentle warm-up techniques which include stretching, and body movement. These help to break down inhibitions and develop childlike playfulness. Breathing exercises are used to prepare the lungs for laughter, followed by a series of “laughter exercises” that combine the method of acting and visualisation techniques with playfulness. These exercises, combined with the social dynamics of group, lead to prolong and hearty unconditional laughter. Laughter exercises are interspersed with breathing exercise.

A laughter session may finish with a “laughter meditation”. This is a session of unstructured laughter whereby participants may stand, sit or lie down and allow natural laughter to flow from within like a fountain. This is followed by a deep relaxation and guided meditation.

***Teacher Bio***

Deborah had been practicing Ashtanga yoga since 2012 and decided to explore other styles of yoga. She was drawn to laughter yoga as she loves to uplift and inspire people and what better way to uplift than to make people laugh. She credits laughter yoga as helping her to over-come self-judgements and self-consciousness as well as reducing stress and anxiety. Teaching laughter yoga really allows her spirit to shine through and she loves to be able to bring this out in her students. Deborah really promotes a fun and open energy in her classes. She received her qualification from the Laughter yoga international university in 2014.
