Laughter is truly the best medicine. Indulging in 15 minutes of laughter lifts the spirits, heals the body, and makes us feel good. Shoji Bridge Departure Doula is excited to offer this new holistic service to the community.

What is laughter yoga? It is an exercise to promote health and wellbeing. It invites participants to bring a joyful, playful, childlike spirit and participate in simple exercises all while self-simulating laughter. In addition, it incorporates yoga deep breathing exercises to provide cardiovascular and spiritual exercise. It is simple to follow along and does not require any stretches or complicated movements. Laughter yoga exercise is easy and appropriate for almost anyone of any age, ability and cognitive level.

What are the benefits of laughter yoga exercise?

And did you know, you get the same benefit from self-simulated laughter as genuine laughter? Your body doesn’t know the difference so all the same benefits apply whether or not you produce a genuine belly laugh. Being playful and making eye contact with your fellow participants often leads to genuine guffaws, because laughter is contagious.

As a certified laughter yoga exercise leader, Michelle Churchman will be leading group sessions via Zoom twice a week. Join her on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 Eastern and/or Saturday mornings at 10:30 Eastern for these 20 – 25 minute virtual sessions. It is truly the more the merrier, so invite a friend and join in each week.

If you have a group that would be interested in private virtual or in-person sessions, contact us to schedule and for pricing information.
