Holy Hilarity: Laughter Yoga to Beat the Winter Blues

Sunday, March 10, 2019 | 2:30pm

With just over a week left in winter, prepare to laugh away the winter blues and spring into a new season with Laughter Yoga. Combining laughter exercises and gentle yoga breathing, Laughter Yoga brings a sense of joy, playfulness, and fun. It’s easy. It's for everyone - aged five - 95. All that’s required is an ability to laugh. (NO POSES OR MAT REQUIRED) It’s not political; religious, competitive, or judgmental. We get the same benefits - lowered stress hormones, increased feel good hormones, and general feelings of well being - from intentional laughter as we do from natural laughter.
