CANCELED: Laughter Yoga

Sunday, January 13, 2019 | 2:30pm

This event has been CANCELED due to snowy conditions.

Join us this JaNEWary for Laughter Yoga with Diane Cohen.

Ha ha ha! Laughter Yoga combines 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. “Holy Hilarity!”

Diane Cohen is an Executive and Career/Life Transition Certified Coach and Certified Laughter Yoga Leader. She started practicing traditional yoga and meditation in the 70s and laughter yoga in 2012. She has led laughter yoga sessions for breast cancer patients and their caretakers, hospital staff members and the general public. Her laughter yoga sessions have been featured in a Voice of America video, the City Paper and on WTOP’s website.
