Laughter yoga club starting



ELLSWORTH — The Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center has announced the beginning of a new monthly laughter yoga club. Due to an overwhelming response to a recent four-week workshop offered on the importance of laughter in life, the organization has decided to offer a monthly group. The free group will begin on April 27, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., and will meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month.

The group will be led by laughter yoga leader Chris Chapman. Laughter yoga combines various breathing and movement techniques thatch assist in quieting the analytical part of the brain, bringing child-like playfulness into the session and one’s life. There are many benefits of practicing laughter yoga regardless of age, including the flow of feel-good endorphins, lowering blood pressure and creating a positive state of mind. The shared laughter within the group builds a strong sense of community. It is recommended to wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in and have drinking water nearby.

This free event will be offered online on Zoom and is open to all.

For more information or to register, call the center at 664-0339 or email [email protected].
