Laughter Class at Bastyr

It’s official.  I’m teaching again at Bastyr University!!!  Teaching what?  Laughter Yoga of course – and all that good stuff about the Healing Power of Laughter.  It’s a great world when a college for Naturopathic Medicine wants a class on laughter!!!

April 1 – 29, 5 Mondays, one hour each class, $45 total.  Open to the public.  We will cover the basics of Laughter Yoga, the health benefits of laughter, the psychology of laughter (laughter and humor as life skills), laughter in the workplace and even how smiling is beneficial.  Each class will end with a ½ hour laughter session.

Contact Bastyr to register:

Phinney Laughter Club

Phinney Laughter Club – February version!

Engage the body

Concerning Laughter Yoga:  Dr. Kataria, its creator, says “Don’t worry if you can’t laugh, just bring your body to the laughter club and it will know what to do.”

Laughter Yoga is an exercise routine, a laughter workout.  We get physical.  We shake hands and laugh.  We do hi-5s and laugh.  We slap our knees and laugh.  We even do bumper cars and laugh.  We play  - engaging our bodies.  And the laughter follows.
