Laughter Therapy combines simulated laughter exercises with deep breathing and stretches that oxygenate your body and you feel energized and rejuvenated. Laughter Therapy can change your mood within minutes, by releasing natural analgesic, Endorphins, that reduces the sensation of pain and affect emotions positively, activating the immune system, decreasing the “stress” hormones, and relaxing your joints and muscles. This session is a MUST weekly dose for those dealing with boredom, depression, loneliness, anxieties, aches, and pains.

Healing Breathing Exercises
The empowering path to self-healing can be as simple as breathing right! Breathing exercises (Pranayama) is another essential part of yoga practice that involves distinct scientific methods regulating the breath intentionally. Respiration (breath) is ‘Prana’, the ultimate expression of energy and life. When ‘Prana’ flows abundantly in our being, we become aware of a glow to our skin and eyes, we feel energetic, vibrant and feel a pulse of energy in each and every cell of our body. On the other hand, when there is a deficiency of ‘Prana’, we feel constant fatigue, dull skin, tired eyes, lack of enthusiasm and sadness. In this self-healing session, you will learn the basics and rehearse various types of breathing exercises that can be practiced daily.

Guided Mindfulness Meditation
Mindfulness meditation is an essential component of yoga. It helps facilitate a state of equanimity. It helps you become aware of here & now; and live in the present moment, unconditionally. You will learn to balance your emotions and experience inner peace. Mindfulness meditation is practiced sitting with eyes closed, cross-legged on a cushion, or on a chair, with the back straight. It involves breathing techniques to relax the body and letting go of mental attachments and worries. According to a 2014 psychological study published by JAMA Internal Medicine, mindfulness meditation reduces anxiety, depression, and pain.
Come, sit comfortably and relax. Become aware of your silent but powerful sense of presence. Within this Silence, is all the answers you seek!
