Laughter Wellness For Seniors In Atlanta
Laughter Yoga For Seniors In Atlanta

 
Laughter exercises can help older people to keep their spirits high, and help them come out of depression.
 
 
There are no poses to learn, no cognitive abilities to “laugh for no reason” and in addition to physical exercise, these Senior Sessions have helped Seniors find much-needed social support. They are very good for their physical, mental and emotional well-being.

The whole gang is enjoying clapping, breath work, playful laughter exercises and group interaction in a community setting.

Richard Taylor of Atlanta Laughter Yoga loves offering Laughter Yoga Wellness Sessions For Seniors and Staff! You will appreciate the immediate benefits of laughter for stress-relief, physical movement with no poses to learn, emotional well-being and community connection. Laughter reduces cortisol and elicits a cascade of the feel-good hormones like serotonin and endorphins. The entire body is oxygenated and most participants report feeling lighter and more relaxed, and more energized after practicing Laughter Yoga Exercises in community setting. The sessions if conducted weekly produces health benefits like few other modalities. Services offered in Metro Atlanta and surrounding towns. Richard a seasoned traveler is willing to travel also.

WHAT: Laughter Yoga (LY) is light exercise needing no special cloths, no equipment, no poses to learn. We laugh for no reason because we can. Laughter Yoga (LY) is a form of exercise to improve health, happiness and joy. Research and seventeen years of experience shows the body cannot tell the difference from fake laughter and real laughter. The laughter becomes contagious in a group and soon the stress oozes away. The more you engage, the more you get out of it.

WHAT YOU SEE: May look like a bunch of nuts laughing, pure craziness, but no one is allowed to just watch. You are asked to participate or wait outside or wait in the car. 17 years and 6000 laughter clubs in over 60 countries prove people have a great time and feel better coming as often as they can.

WHAT YOU MAY FEEL:  Silly, fun, child like playfulness, stupid, embarrassed, happy, joyful, happy, blissful, bright, warm inside, golden, halcyon, need to laugh more, don’t stop, riant, feeling mirth, infectious, cheerful, elated, joyous, bonded, sense of community, calm, peaceful, carefree, de-stressed, relaxed, energized, psyched. Did I say ” I feel good.”

COME JOIN US! ALL ARE WELCOME. OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

HOW:

  • A brief introduction to Laughter Yoga
  • Go over five things to remember during the session
  • Then I tell and show what is going to happen. No reason to be nervous. It is all just plain fun.
  • We do some fun movements – no poses to memorize – you can choose to not do a certain movement – no new pain
  • We breathe, really breathe
  • We move
  • We clap
  • We chant some … HO, HO, HAA, HAA, HAA
  • And then laugh as best we can.
  • Things move along quickly so no one gets bored.
  • We usually do 10-12 different laughter exercises depending on time and group size.
  • You do not have to know anything about Yoga.
  • Most come in street clothes, or work clothes. A bathroom is available if you come straight from work and want to get casual. No yoga clothes are needed. Loose fitting clothes the best.
  • No mats, or special shoes. Some find they actually perspire.
  • We end with a Laughter Meditation like no other meditation you have ever done!
  • We get grounded
  • Then wrap up and done.

IF: Come with an open mind. The session is to help you leave your mind at the front door and to embrace child like playfulness and enjoy each moment for 45 minutes. If you do, you will find you have a great time and feel de-stressed and energized for the evening and the week ahead.

Monday was carefully chosen to help you emerge into the work week full of vitality.

Laughter Yoga with Blind Students in Bangalore

Laughter Yoga with Blind Students in Bangalore

http://www.laughteryoga.org

In August 19, 2012 Dr. Madan Kataria experimented Laughter Yoga Exercises and singing with a group of blind students in Bangalore India. Just have a look at the video, it was a great spiritual experience. Blind people have nothing much to laugh about in their lives. But these students are having great fun with Laughter Yoga. They are planning to have their own laughter club this way.

Blind Students experience joy with laughter yoga and music.
