Energy is the source of all life.  We now know that everything — including our own bodies — is made up of energy that is in constant motion. Please join Renee and Sue for their dynamic grand opening workshop devoted to exploring and enhancing your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual energy the fun way  — with  Laughter Yoga. No previous knowledge or experience required. We will laugh you through it.
In yogic healing, chakras (wheels) are the seven swirling energy centers of subtle energy running from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. Each is a hub for vital energy or life force  (prana)  that flows through the body. These seven energy centers affect our survival skills, stress levels, sexuality, sensuality, self-confidence, power, love, communication, mental clarity and connection to the cosmos. Wow!  That’s a lot to laugh about!  Carmela will share practical ways to work with your chakras using  color, scent, sound, yoga postures and of course, laughter.
Get en-er-gized with laughter exercises, deep breathwork, some time on the mat, and moving around the studio in playful community celebration. The benefits are immediate and amazing!

Brief History of Laughter Yoga

Laughter Yoga was created by Dr. Madan Kataria, a physician in Mumbai, India.
In the early 1990’s he had a private practice and wrote papers for medical
journals. In his scholarly work he became interested in the growing body of scientific evidence showing that laughter is extremely beneficial to mental and physical health. He and his wife, Madhuri, a
yoga teacher, integrated yoga breathing, stretches, clapping and laughter exercises to create Laughter Yoga. They started a small group in 1995 and there are now Laughter Yoga clubs in 58 countries with thousands of people laughing for better health around the world everyday. Laughter Yoga has been featured on CNN. The Discovery Channel, National Geographic and Oprah, as well as in the international press around the globe. Now you can enjoy its benefits in  beautiful wine country.
