Laughter Yoga is a practice of intentional laughter. Mix it with stretching and pranayama, or yogic breathing, and you have the makings of stress relief and joy. 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! The benefits lasts for days after a laughter session. All that is required is the ability to laugh! The sessions are one hour long and are suitable for all ages and abilities. No special clothing nor mats required. Suitable for all fitness levels. No fee! We will be meeting in the meeting room of the Southeast DC neighborhood library, which is located in the basement level of the library. Benefits of Laughter.
