De-stress with Laughter Club this summer

ULM Professor of Flute Dr. Sandra Lunte invites everyone of any age to join her in experiencing better health, well being, and a sense of unity and connection.

Lunte, who is also a certified Laughter Yoga leader and certified Laughter Coach, said Laughter Yoga is not traditional yoga, but a group exercise that combines yogic breathing, intentional laughter exercises, and childlike playfulness with eye contact and movement, (if one is able) to gain physiological and psychological benefits.

"It is believed that laughter delivers benefits whether it is in reaction to something funny or simply produced intentionally," she said.

Laughter Yoga is free and open to everyone.

People with physical disabilities are also welcome and may perform the exercises in a seated position.

Laughter Yoga is a worldwide phenomenon with over 6000 laughter clubs in over 66 countries.

Classes started on Monday, May 23, from 6:15-7 p.m. in the Emy-Lou Biedenharn Recital Hall, Room 134, on the ULM campus.

The class will also meet June 20, July 18, and every Friday during the fall semester at 12:30 p.m.
