Laughter Yoga Playshop


A message from Jon Lubeck ’14:

Come to a laughter yoga “playshop” on Monday the 9th at 6PM in the Buddhist House Meditation room. The “playshop” will be led by local laughter yoga teacher Mylene Poitras. It should last only about an hour.

Laughter yoga is a practice that combines laughter exercises with controlled breathing and calming movements. It produces endorphins that counter-stress and help bring about relaxation. It’s fun and should be a great way to help us forget about final stress.

Date: Today, December 9, 2013
Time: 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Place: Buddhist House Meditation room
