Proud Presenters for these groups and organizations:
Reviews from Participants at Possible Parent Conference Positive changes I noticed in myself –
"I found the sound of my natural laughter.. more connected with others and deeper presence."
"I noticed how my mind transitioned to happy thoughts."
"My body feels energized and alive now and more alert and appreciative."
“Feeling relaxed and also feeling release at same time. Learning to laugh without any reason. Better breathing increased awareness.”
Be sure to tell others:
“The instructors made it natural to participate.”
“This is an amazing class!”
How I will use this in the future:
“Experiences that will help me, friends and family. Concrete practices really helpful; may be more accessible than mindfulness work – though I know it is included.”
“I will use this to help myself feel more joy every day and share with family.”
“I will take negativity and laugh instead.”
From a Laughter Wellness class with kids: Today we did movements with a guest named Sharon. The activities helped with feelings and waking up. Jacob
When Sharon came and shared her methods of calming down and relaxing it meant a lot to me. I can use them and calm down and relax then I can go about my day calm. I can use the bumble bee breathing when it is too loud.
What we learned today is how to breath when feelings are hurt. Jellow (joyful jello exercise) is my favorite. Tanner
Today we learned that you can be who you are and you are free to do whatever whenever you want. For example you can do “no word-anger.” Evan
We learned in today’s class how to feel giggle using the Jello jiggle method. We learned how to love ourselves. Agorra
Today I learned that laughter can change the neural pathways in the brain – including the respiratory and circulatory systems. Laughter brings blood flow through a number of techniques. We learned about tapping, breath, ha ha, joyful jello etc. You can replace negativity with one of these Kay Minkel
Today we did a laugh for no reason class and the activities we did were bee breath; laugh lotion; no word-anger. Joyful jello – tapping and lion breath. Anna
Today I learned that it is ok to be silly and be yourself. Evelyn
