Laughter Yoga and World Laughter Day

Please see below email and link for your information. World Laughter Day 2018 – poster Hi Everyone I’m just a little bit excited!!! Back in March …. when we had all that snow ….. I joined an ITV film crew and 5 older people for their documentary ‘OAP Bootcamp’.  We did a Laughter Yoga session as part of the documentary that will include other activities in promoting how people over 65 can overcome loneliness, lack of exercise and healthy eating.  This documentary is being screened on the ‘Tonight’ programme this Thursday, 12 April 2018 from 7.30 pm to 8.00 pm.  The Laughter Yoga is likely to be shown at the end of the programme.  Here is the link to the TV Guide: www.tvguide.co.uk/detail/2961263/137282764/tonight There is also a Twitter hashtag for it:  #OAPBootcamp I would also like to promote two FREE Laughter Yoga sessions I shall be running at Mary Stevens Park, Stourbridge, DY8 2AA on Sunday, 6 May 2018.  This will be to celebrate World Laughter Day in which people laugh all around the world on the first Sunday in May to promote World Peace. The first session will be from 11.00 am and the second from 2.00 pm – both will be 1-hour in duration and hopefully will take place in the open air (if not, we shall use the hub building).
