Published DateGILFORD — Marcia Wyman of the New England Center of Laughter is offering the program "Laughter Yoga" on Tuesday, June 25 in the Wesley Woods Community Center in Gilford. The presentation will begin at 12:15 a.m.
Laughter Yoga was started in 1995 by a medical doctor in India who also did yoga breathing. He found laughter to be similar to deep exhalations and named his new holistic movement Laughter Yoga. There are now 7,000 clubs in over 65 countries. Scientific studies in the United States have shown that prolonged laughter improves both the body and the mind.
"It's a great way to feel better and stay better, " says Wyman , "and no side effects except joy and feeling renewed and refreshed."
