- DURATION 30 mins
'mirth' means joy and laughter - let's turn that into action by laughing like nobody is watching – just for the pure joy of it and to boost your mood, health and resilience.
Join certified Laughter Yoga Leader Sylvia for this unique session, combining laughter with breathing and stretching exercises – this will most certainly give your Monday morning a boost.
Sylvia will facilitate the exercises. When we laugh, we release feel-good hormones that uplift our mood, help to combat stress and even relieve pain.
This is an extra special session kicking off our Festival of Belonging 2022!
- Duration: 30 mins
- Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (no replay available)
Meet the Host, Sylvia
Sylvia has a business background and a strong interest in natural health and therapies, she has a foundation training in counselling skills (COSCA), is a Jikiden Reiki practitioner and a Certified TRE® (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises) Provider.
When the pandemic hit she asked herself what the world really needs and concluded: health, joy and laughter! Laughter Yoga ticks all these boxes and she wants as many people as possible to join in – as laughter is contagious, in a good way!
Preparing for the Event
Dr. Madan Kataria, the founder of Laugher Yoga, once said:
"I have not seen anybody dying of laughter. I know millions who are dying because they are not laughing."
But as Laughter Yoga is an aerobic exercise, it's not suitable for people who shouldn't do exercises. Please refer to Sylvia's website for more details: http://www.laughforsuccess.co.uk/post/disclaimer
