Laughter Yoga Club at Dance Warrior in W. Orange, NJ
August 2 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Visit www.laughteryoganj.com for more information. Class begins always at 4pm, we meet at 3:45 to check in and get to know one another. We have a brand new home in West Orange after more than a year in Montclair, we needed a bigger space.
In laughter yoga we combine laughter exercises with youthful playfulness and movement, eye contact and deep breathing to connect, unwind, and let go. We laugh for no reason, no sense of humor required, we fake it until we make it! The benefits lasts for days after a laughter session.
The sessions are 55 minutes and are suitable for all ages and abilities. Participants are encouraged to wear loose clothing and bring water, as laughter is like internal jogging. No Yoga mats necessary.
