Laughter Yoga with Angela Essick Dyke – Therapy & Fun Caregiver Workshop
June 30 @ 9:00 am - 10:15 am
Angela Essick Dyke is a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader. Laughter Yoga combines Unconditional Laughter with Yogic Breathing (Pranayama). Anyone can Laugh for No Reason, without relying on humor, jokes or comedy. Laughter is simulated as a body exercise in a group; with eye contact and childlike playfulness, it soon turns into real and contagious laughter. The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits.
