the early days of laugh yoga.

 i recently received an email 

from a local group looking for members

(some of you may remember the ventriloquist’s group who tried to recruit me?)

well, this group is into laughter yoga therapy.

all i could think of was the memory

of my mother in assisted living

one of the only verbal (and opinionated)

people in her group.

one day when i was visiting

a therapist came in 

telling them they were going to try a new thing:

laugh yoga therapy

she rolled her eyes but went along 

once it was finished they asked her what she thought of it

her response: 

“that was the stupidest thing i’ve ever done.”

i’m not sure it had quite the effect on her that they’d hoped for

but her comment gave more than one of us a very good laugh.

the invite:

The Concept of Laughter Yoga is based on the scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter~ Everyone wants health and happiness in their lives. But instead they are getting stressed out , depressed, getting less sleep, more negative thoughts and feeling isolated. Does this sound like you? Are you someone who wants to move on and bring more laughter and joy into…
