NYC Laughter Yoga

  • Hub seventeen 114 5th Avenue New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

When we look for ways to optimize our health, rarely do we venture beyond diet and exercise, even though the interconnection between emotional and physical health is indisputable. But where can you go for a reliable boost of carefree optimism? How can you add a systematic and consistent program of positive emotion to your workout?

Laughter Yoga is one solution. 

A general term for a series of vocalizations, breathing exercises and simple physical movements, Laughter Yoga’s sole purpose is to induce laughter to trigger the release of neurochemicals that boost the immune system, diminish the secretion of stress hormones and elevate mood. Whether expressed spontaneously or cultivated from playful social interaction, laughter is not only healthy, it's accessible in all of us.

In providing a social, therapeutic environment to exercise our inherent ability to laugh, practitioners frequently experience elevated mood, improved immune and respiratory function, reduced self-consciousness and greater resilience to stress.

Join us for a dose of lighthearted laughter.  Your body will thank you. 

The workshop will be taught by:

Vishwa Prakash, Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher trained by Dr. Madan Kataria, the founder of Laughter Yoga.  He has opened several laughter clubs in Asia and New York City, and has trained hundreds of Laughter Yoga Leaders.

Jonathan Applefield, Certified Laughter Yoga Leader who hosts weekly sessions in New York City. He frequently partners with Vishwa to promote laughter yoga workshops at schools, hospitals and corporations.
