Come and laugh with us every Sunday morning ($2 donation, no bookings or special equipment necessary).

Laughter Yoga employs no humour, jokes or comedy and participants are invited to laugh for no reason at all. Anyone can do it.

Laughter “Yoga” is a deceptively simple yet very powerful form of exercise, combining laughter exercises with yogic breathing (quite different from traditional yoga with postures). Ultimately, Laughter “Yoga” is about the cultivation of joyfulness. It teaches you to make happiness a choice and not a consequence. Whether fake or genuine, laughter has measurable psychological and physiological benefits, including:

- the release of endorphins and serotonin;
- decreases levels of stress hormones;
- beats depression and anxiety;
- boosts the immune system;
- increases circulation;
- floods the body with oxygen;
- is an aerobic exercise;
- improves communication and creativity;
- increases Killer T Cell production, which helps fight cancer;

“Laughter is our body’s natural antidote to stress and as natural as breathing, we just need a gentle reminder to do it.”
