Holy Hilarity: Laughter Yoga

Sunday, May 16, 2021 | 4:00pm

Need a laugh? Want to laugh for the health of it? Do you think that “laughter is the best medicine”? Discover the joy of  “laughing for no reason” in this 60-minute online laughter yoga session. Laughter Yoga is yoga through the lens of laughter and pranayama breathing. It helps us build resilience, lower stress, boost our immune system, and feel more light-hearted. Laughter happens without relying on humor, jokes or comedy. And, you’ll find that “ha ha ha can lead to aha”!

Advanced registration is required; registration closes at noon EDT on May 16.
