Program: Laughing Our Way to Wellbeing
7:30–8:30 pm, Bishop's Garden
Join leader Diane Cohen, CPCC, for an evening of Laughter Yoga, a blend of yogic, Pranayama breathing, and laughter exercises with health benefits for the mind, body and spirit. Laughter Yoga exercises (breathing, clapping, and movement) are designed to relax us and to boost our creativity. With intentional laughter, we tap into a wellspring of joy that engenders feelings of health and well being. Please join us for this wacky, silly, and fun practice that has been proven to reduce stress and strengthen the immune system. The session ends with a period of silent meditation. Wear a smile. Bring your silly bone. Be prepared to have fun and de-stress and open to a wellspring of holy joy. You might also want to bring a bottle of water.
