Laughter Yoga

Monday, August 27, 2018
Thanks to our friends from Care Indeed we are laughing happily with our Laughter Yoga Instructor Annie.
Laughter Yoga combines unconditional laughter with Yogic Breathing.
Laughter is simulated as a body exercise in a group; with eye contact and childlike playfulness, it soon turns into real and contagious laughter. The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific face that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits.


Florence, Bill, Elsa and Nellie all had fun laughing.

Thank you to Annie for being such a wonderful instructor.
