As I have mentioned before, the reasons for moving my Business into a larger space was to be able to introduce therapists who wanted to rent a room and have more classes! Well, we have meditation and Reiki workshops and shares and now I would like to introduce you to Katrina and her Laughter Yoga Club!
My name is Katrina and I have worked with the community and voluntary sector for over 15 years, in a wide range of roles, including community development and managing projects, managing grant schemes and fundraising. I decided to train to be a Laughter Yoga Teacher as I am always told by people that I am always laughing and smiling. I wanted to spread my smiles and laughing to others as often people have forgotten to learn to laugh, have fun and enjoy their lives.
Laughter yoga is a concept open for anyone and there is no need for humour, comedy and jokes. The workshops feature a mix of playful laughter exercises and yogic breathing and to have a willingness to participate. The body does not know the difference between real and fake laughter and you will get all the physiological and the psychological benefits. It was started in 1995 by medical Doctor, Dr Madan Kataria with 5 people. – now there are 1000’s of clubs in over 70 countries.
There are many personal, health, business and social benefits to Laughter yoga. It changes your mood in seconds because of the endorphins (happy chemicals) released – feeling good stays with you throughout the day and you do every day things well. It lowers stress and strengthens your immune system, you are less likely to catch viruses and if you do you can fight them more easily. Your brain need 25% more Oxygen than the rest of the body and laughter yoga increases that supply of Oxygen to the brain, enabling you to feel energised and motivated. It connects you with people and you create caring and sharing relationships – improving the quality of life altogether.
Laughter yoga practised regularly brings about a positive way of dealing with challenges with a smile on your face.
