Harmony In Life
Laughter is the best medicine! Laughter Yoga is the practice of combining laughter exercises with yogic breathing. The many benefits of laughter include: lowering the negative effects of stress, oxygenating the body and brain, and improving mood and overall health. The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter if done with willingness. One gets the same health benefits, whether laughter is real or simulated.

BE THE CHANGE
This workshop is an invitation to become more receptive to yourself and the surrounding world through the practice of Yin Yoga.

When we take the time to know ourselves more intimately, it helps us to live, love, and serve the world in a way that is more joyful and harmonious.
