Laughter Yoga is a joy-filled workout for all levels of fitness. During class, we laugh for no reason without jokes, humor or comedy. Instead, we play with laughter games and yoga breathing techniques which have been researched to benefit every body system. People state they feel more energetic, healthy, positive and peaceful after a Laughter Yoga class. Heather has seen individuals with diseases such as COPD, Parkinson's, MS, and cancer find great benefit in breathing easier, better movement and less pain. In research, laughter has been shown to benefit the immune system, hypertension, diabetes, fertility, fibromyalgia, menstrual disorders and many more physical challenges. Laughter Yoga also reduces anxiety and depression due to increases in neurotransmitter release.
