Odawara Laughter Club
We would like to let you know of a kind of club which is spreading
like wildfire throughout the world and has now arrived in Odawara!
LAUGHTER CLUB (Laughter Yoga)
We all know that laughter makes us feel good. Laughter Yoga combines
laughter exercises and yoga breathing to give you the health benefits
of hearty laughter. It's fun and easy.
After just one laughter yoga session you can experience the benefits
and feel the difference: blood and all major organs are fully
oxygenated, leaving us bursting with energy. High endorphin levels
put us in a great mood and reduce pain. Stress levels reduce by 75%.
Come laugh, make friends, and feel great!
