Let's celebrate the first day of spring with Laughter and Drumming! Join us for Laughter Yoga and a Drum Circle at Woodland Park. We will meet by the Gazebo on Kentucky Ave. Laughter will start at 6pm and Drumming will start at 7pm! The Laughter Yoga is a pay-what-you-can, donation based class (suggested donation of $10). Bring water and something to lay on (yoga mat, blanket, towel, etc) or a comfortable chair and wear loose comfortable clothing. (This class can be done sitting and does not require laying down) Everyone is welcome, we accommodate all genders, ages, and abilities. No stretchy poses or balancing, everyone can do this! It’s just laughter, breath, mindfulness, and love. Bring a friend and share the joy of laughter! You will leave feeling less stressed and more joyful, all while improving your overall health For the Drum Circle, bring drums, maracas, tambourines, guitars, and any other musical instrument you wish to play. This is a rain or shine event. The gazebo will protect us if we need it. :-) Laughter Yoga will help you discover the amazing medicine of laughter! No flexibility or sense of humor required!! Laughing for no reason is a purely physical process that uses simple breathing techniques and fun laughter exercises to elicit laughter, without relying on humor, jokes, or comedy. It’s based on the scientific fact that the body cannot tell the difference between fake and real laughter. It decreases stress and anxiety, improves your mood, strengthens your immune system, is a natural pain killer, and oxygenates the body!
