Most meetings begin with an introduction to the benefits of laughter and some gentle warm up exercises. This is usually followed by a variety of games and Laughter yoga exercises, (designed by Dr. Kataria in India in 1995 to open up the body and mind to laughter) www.laughteryoga.org. The principle of is that we can bring laughter to the body first and the mind will follow. The laughter releases endorphins which make us feel great and the pretend laughter soon leads to spontaneous laughter and loads and loads of laffs! We aim to be extremely silly and playful, because as Robert Holden explains; “Being silly is not silly; being silly is a first step to being free.”
Laughing with others in a group is particularly infectious, and we usually finish the Laughter yoga with a Laughter Meditation and a relaxation after all that serious giggling and chuckling!
Who usually comes to the Laughter Club?
People who love to laugh, people who want even more laughing in their lives, and people who like focusing on the lighter side of life!
What if I don’t laugh?
You do not need to laugh to join in. If you find it hard to laugh, a smile is fine. The important thing is to be yourself and enjoy being with other playful people. Participants usually find that if they are simply willing to laugh and have fun then the rest is easy!
What do I need to wear?
Please wear comfortable, loose clothes and a big grin.
How much is it?
£7 per person.
Who do I contact to book a place?
Please contact Lisa Sturge on 01243 572381 or email email@example.com to book a place at the Club. Numbers are limited, but the laughter definitely isn’t!
