In today’s world, people want to be healthy, they want to be happy, but instead, they are getting stressed out, depressed, getting less sleep, more negative thoughts and feeling isolated. Does this sound like you? Are you someone who wants to move on and bring more laughter and joy into your life? You are in the right place.

Laughter Yoga is a unique concept where anyone can laugh for no reason, without relying on humour, jokes or comedy. The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter if done with willingness. One gets the same health benefits, whether laughter is real or simulated. You'll leave feeling relaxed and happy.

Restorative Yoga uses props to fully support the body so that each posture may be passively received rather than actively sought. Unlike other forms of exercise or other styles of yoga, restorative poses require little to no effort. The practice is in the ‘non-effort’ supporting the on-off switch from ‘fight or flight’ response of our full lives into ‘relaxation response’. A guided Yoga Nidra will complete this relaxation practice.

If you have any questions or concerns, please Contact Helen.
