Laughter Yoga – Senior Living

A new wave of therapeutic exercise known as Laughter Yoga is becoming a popular form of health and wellness for all ages. More and more seniors are also discovering Laughter Yoga as a fun way to socialize and improve their overall mental and physical health. Laughter Yoga is a series of movements and breathing exercises designed to stimulate laughter and cultivate an inner spirit of joy. Laughter is stimulated without relying on jokes.

Laughter is the best medicine. Healing properties of laughter include a boost of the immune system, decreased blood pressure, reduced muscular tension, improved breathing and stimulated digesting. Laughter dispels loneliness and alienation.

Gene Furbee, 70, teaches laughter yoga. He discovered it, after his wife had a stroke and during a walk they stumbled upon a Laughter Yoga class happening in Beacon Hill Park. After participating in the class, his wife said “You have to learn how to teach this.” He, then, embarked on becoming a certified Laughter Yoga instructor.
