Laughter Yoga Workshop with Deborah McCann
About Laughter Yoga
This two hour laughter yoga workshop will uplift and inspire your soul. This playshop will encourage you to bring out your childlike sense of playfulness and show you how to have fun while releasing stress. Laughter is the best medicine and this workshop is designed to show you how to receive some of the amazing health benefits laughter has on the mind and body. Laughter is scientifically proven to reduce stress, anxiety, depression and increase physical and mental energy levels. Laughter actually boosts your immune system keeping you stronger and healthier overall. When we laugh together we feel more open and accepting of ourselves and others, what a fun way to build new friendships.
In this workshop we will be incorporating guided meditation to meet our creative and fun selves, we will delve into learning about chakras (energy centres in our bodies) and how chanting can help calm, ground and centre ourselves. Laughter is great to boost the mood and lift our spirits so come along and join us for a work out like no other.

Deborah had been practicing Ashtanga yoga since 2012 and decided to explore other styles of yoga. She was drawn to laughter yoga as she loves to uplift and inspire people and what better way to uplift than to make people laugh. She credits laughter yoga as helping her to over-come self-judgements and self-consciousness as well as reducing stress and anxiety. Teaching laughter yoga really allows her spirit to shine through and she loves to be able to bring this out in her students. Deborah really promotes a fun and open energy in her classes. She received her qualification from the Laughter yoga international university in 2014.
