Laughter Yoga

Laughter is the best medicine is a well-known saying and it really is.

So why is it good to laugh?

When we laugh we might be aware of the physical movements in our body, our diaphragm and chest tighten and we push air out of our lungs.

There is also changes within our body that are not visible. Scientific studies consistently support the fact that when we laugh we produce health enhancing hormones and decreases stress hormones. Laughter is also a natural social connector.

As we get older we tend to leave our laughter to chance so we are missing out on all the benefits.

This is where we at Laughter and Life can help you either in an individual basis or as part of a group.

Mindfulness

Wouldn’t it be nice – just for an hour – to sit in stillness, in quiet, to reconnect with our body and breath and calm the mind?

Whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned meditator – this meditation group offers a supportive environment to practice meditation regularly in an informal, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The session gives you the opportunity to sit in stillness, in quiet, to reconnect with your body and breath and calm your mind.

Testimonials

"It’s a unique bonding experience between mums and babies."
Annmarie & Ethan
Attendee
"Cheryl brought some great toys and accessories to amuse and include the babies; the bubbles were great!"
Sham & Khalil
Attendee
"Laughter Yoga is so much fun. I enjoy it with and without the kids. The sessions I do with my baby are great as Cheryl includes props that keep babies amused, amazed and involved. When I do laughter yoga with the adults it is equally great fun and I dare not think what the neighbours think of the crazy noise we make."
Jo & Aiden
Attendee
"Cheryl’s laughter therapy is a wonderful service, helping to reduce anxiety and stress, and to aid relaxation and a more positive and optimistic outlook."
Sarah Russell
Chief Executive Director, Tibbs Dementia Foundation
"I recently had a stroke a year ago and I was thinking that I would need to get better at meditation. I like to do meditation and it calms me down and I usually use it to sleep. Cheryl has showed me different ways to meditate. She also showed me the Gong, which was brilliant. We spoke in deep about meditation and how it helps you. How to put a negative in in with the positive. I feel that I have learnt a lot which Cheryl. Thank you Cheryl for all your time effort".
