Laughter Yoga for Seniors
Laughter yoga for seniors is a great activity for senior communities, senior centers, assisted living facilities and nursing homes. It is a cardiovascular exercise ideally suited for seniors.
When working with seniors we see another side of one another. Many times we see folks open up who would not in an ordinary setting. Since laughter yoga encourages participants to get in touch with their childlike playfulness, there are no rules or guidelines for people to remember.
We laugh as a form of exercise and it promotes healthier lives. Laughter many times is lacking in assisted living centers and other retirement communities. With laughter yoga we bring everyone together as a community to combat feelings of loneliness and fatigue.
Seniors leave feeling rejuvenated and with a renewed sense of joy.
