JUN 10, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM          

Cultivate an inner spirit of joy! 


People in good moods & people in bad moods. People on top of the world & people in ruts.

People easy to laugh & people who need a bit more to get going.  People who are extroverted & people who are introverted.

Take a leap and come laugh!

Laughter Yoga combines yoga-based deep breathing, gentle movement, and playful (unintimidating) activities to stimulate laughter and cultivate joy! Join Zoe for a spirit-lifting afternoon of community and fun.

Why Laughter? 

  • strengthen the immune system

  • reduce pain

  • encourage deep rest and sleep

  • lower stress

  • relax the body

  • trigger the release of endorphins

  • promote an overall sense of well-being

No experience with traditional postures is needed – and no special equipment other than an open attitude!  Come as you are (including if you aren’t feeling that great) and leave feeling lighter
