Joy-Inducing Endorphins: Laughter Yoga

Laughter has been shown to reduce stress, produce a positive mindset and promote a sense of relaxation and joy in the body and mind. Participants are invited to come prepared to laugh, and to laugh for no particular reason. In traditional laughter yoga, as it began in the 1990s in India, certain exercises are sometimes used initially to stimulate a group into laughter. Noticing that one, or everyone, can simply choose to begin laughing uproariously, and that laughter is contagious, this is Janaki’s preferred method. Both techniques may be introduced during this evening’s “Laughing with Abandon” event.

Janaki Pierson, co-founder, executive director and principal instructor of the Woodbury Meditation & Yoga Center, presents seminars on Hatha Yoga, Meditation, Stress Management, Death and Dying/Life and Living, Elementary Sanskrit, and Thinking into Being: Creating Your Own Reality. Ms. Pierson has been teaching meditation for over 35 years and has been established in her own daily practice for 40 years.

This complimentary program is open to everyone, and includes instruction and practice of meditation. The Woodbury Meditation & Yoga Center (WMYC) is located at 122 West Side Road in Woodbury, CT. Everyone is welcome to come earlier, at 5:00 pm, for a complimentary sample yoga class.
