RELIEVES STRESS! PROVEN TO BE HEALTHY AND FUN! Dress casually and comfortably. Be prepared to move and LAUGH!

DO YOU KNOW? … Laughter clubs have met regularly for over 15 years in major parks of Western India?

Poitras is a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader affiliated with the Laughter Yoga Institute of Laguna Beach and the Dr. Kataria School. She is also a Certified Laughter Leader with The World Laughter Tour. She uses Therapeutic Laughter in her practice of Expressive Arts, Expressive Puppetry and Massage Therapy in working for Masonicare Partners Home Health and Hospice and Pediatric Palliative Care.

Laughter Yoga, beside being fun, has both mental and physical health benefits. It stimulates a mild to moderate cardiovascular workout; it produces endorphins which counteract the production of stress hormones; it appears to optimize the immune system; it reduces self-consciousness and boosts self-confidence; and it relaxes muscles and helps fight chronic pain associated with muscle tensions.

A Laughter Yoga “playshop” includes breathing, stretching, laughtercises, meditation and relaxation. Laughter Yoga does not involve traditional humor or comedy. We laugh out of the blue, just for pleasure, to have fun and feel invigorated.
