Laughter Yoga and Tai Chi with Laura Lou Pape-McCarthy!
Laura Lou (Certified Laughter Yoga Leader) will capture the attention of your residents and delight them with the ease of laughing for no reason! By engaging each resident and encouraging them to move within their own comfort zone, Laura Lou entices spontaneous movement and communication from the shyest and most isolated participants!
Hasya (Laughter) Yoga is a system for producing sustained laughter without relying on humor, jokes or comedy. This fun new exercise system cultivates child-like playfulness and joy. Plus, it increases the supply of oxygen to the brain and heightens body awareness. These are simple concepts that add up to a surprising amount of benefits for the mind and body.
A recent graduate of PCC’s Gerontology and Fitness Technology programs, Laura Lou also has a background in physical theater and circus clowning!
Laugh and find your inner joy with Laughter Yoga!
