Laughter really IS the best medicine!
Laughter Yoga is a practice, founded in India, by a medical doctor and Yogi named Dr. Madan Kataria. The practice connects Yogic breathing (Pranayama) to laughing exercises and is meant to help you cultivate joy, release inhibitions, increase serotonin and endorphins, and decrease stress.
Laughter Yoga does not require a mat or blocks and you will not be doing postures. It is for everyone and anyone can do it, the only blocks you need are the ones you are willing to unblock with this incredibly healing practice!
Participants should wear comfortable clothing and bring a bottle of water.
This event is hosted at a private residence in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
