Trauma Informed Yoga Workshop with Angela Kayira and Brendan MundenMarch 22, 2016
Laughter Yoga is a blend of breathing techniques, stretching and simulated laughter exercises cultivated with playfulness. Developed in India by Dr. Madan Kataria after research into the overwhelming body of scientific evidence that described the proven benefits of laughter on the mind and body. Laughter Yoga is now a popular and growing practice around the world.
Laughter Yoga brings more oxygen to the body and brain by incorporating yogic breathing which results in deep diaphragmatic breathing, massages the internal organs, stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system (promoting calmness and healing), brings more oxygen into the body, flushes toxins by stimulating the digestive tract, stimulates circulation, increases the capacity of the lungs and helps to boost the immune system.
