On Thursday 17th April 2014 at The Priory Rooms, GINA organised a FREE session of… LAUGHTER YOGA!
Laughter Yoga began with an explanation of the foundations of the work, then a gentle warm up which was followed by a series of laughter exercises interspersed with some simple stretching and deep breathing. No yoga ability was required! The benefits included a cardio and mind-body workout, stress reduction, enhanced mood, relaxation, pain reduction and improved mental functioning.
Before the laughter yoga session we had an interactive hour with participants where they shared their thoughts and ideas about ways to develop our future products and events. The hour of laughter yoga with Sandra Wathall of Laughing Hearts was offered as a THANK YOU for their time.
