Tonight I went to Laughter Yoga.
|Melanie with founder Dr. Kataria|
Now here's what it was like:
Since I can not laugh, Mia had to do the class for me. It last about an hour long with about 30+ minutes of that being the active part of Laughter Yoga, about 20 was introductions & explanation about Laughter Yoga and the last 10 was odds & ends at the end of class.
The leader, Melanie, would instructed us on the technique we'd be using. Sometimes we'd laugh with our whole bodies, sometimes laughing with a greeting, or laughing silently. The whole thing was about breathing, connecting to other class mates, and having fun. Mia said she could tell in her mid section she'd worked out her abdomen muscles. Mia's friend had gone with her - Mia's friend was up till almost 2 am with the giggles! Some big fun & joy were brought into her life! Mia wasn't effected to that level but she did have a great time & thinks it would be fun to try again.
The Yoga was held in the Rainbow Center it is a space where they also hold many interesting community events.
