Laughter as a Spiritual Practice – More Joy, Less Oy!
Laughter as a Spiritual Practice is run by Susan Phillips, M.Ed, an integrative Health Coach Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher.
Together we experience hearty laughter as a spiritual practice—increasing joy, resilience, wellbeing and uplifting you and those around you. We do this with seated and standing laughter exercises, alternated with deep, relaxing yoga (belly) breaths. This kind of hearty, sustained laughter boosts your mood, relieves stress, increases your energy, and is lots of fun.
Group laughter soon becomes contagious. We are able to generate laughter without relying on jokes or humor. This practice is called Laughter Yoga and is done in 106 countries! There are no mats or yoga poses. It is easy and accessible to all. You will leave feeling relaxed and refreshed.
