Laughter Yoga Update
‘Make your Laugh Matter’ This is the slogan for the 2017 Comic Relief Red Nose Day.
Laughter Yoga fits this slogan perfectly and what’s more, it’s good for your health and will give you that wonderful ‘feel-good’ factor.
There will be two Laughter Yoga sessions on Red Nose Day (Friday, 24 March 2017) during lunchtime at Dudley Leisure Centre, Wellington Road, Dudley, DY1 1UH; first session from 12.00 noon to 12.45pm and second session from 1.00 pm to 1.45 pm. Bring ‘loads of money’ to donate to Comic Relief and bring plenty of smiles, giggles and chuckles. These sessions are open to everyone.
If you can’t make ‘The Big Day’, there are two sessions during the week before:
Monday, 13 March 2017 from 7.00 pm to 8.00 pm at Wordsley Green Community Centre, The Green, Wordsley, Stourbridge, DY8 5BN
Thursday, 16 March 2017 from 10.30 am to 11.30 am at the Mata Da Mandir Centre, 57-59 King Street, Dudley, DY2 8PX.

Another date for your diary is Sunday, 7 May 2017. On the first Sunday in May each year all around the world people join together to laugh together for World Peace. Locally, this year’s World Laughter Day will take place at Mary Stevens Park, Stourbridge, DY8 2AA from the Hub Building. There will be two 1-hour sessions – one starting at 11.00 am and the other at 2.00 pm. These sessions will be FREE of charge and weather permitting will take place outside. Should the weather turn against us, we shall go inside the Hub Building.
If you cannot make any of these open sessions but would be interested in a session for your organisation or group, please contact me so I can book one in for you.
I’ll leave you with this quotation: ‘Laughter oxygenates your soul’.
