Event Description

Full Description:
UQ Wellness Presents:

Be Inspired with Laughter Yoga

Facilitator: The Happydemic, Heather Joy Campbell

Laughter yoga is a powerful tool helping to reduce workplace stress and create happy and energetic workplaces. It has nothing to do with jokes and comedy, or indeed physical yoga poses, and everything to do with wellbeing. Developed by an Indian physician laughter yoga involves gentle stretching, hand clapping, deep slow breaths and sustained laughter exercises.
Some of the more common physical and psychological health benefits attributed to laughter yoga
include:
Stress relief
Light cardio exercise
Immune system booster
Lowers high blood pressure
Eases anxiety
Improves lung capacity
Sharpens focus
Encourages creative problem-solving
Reduces pain.


Join us for a 45 minute introductory session to ease the tension and workout at the same time.
