Join us for an evening of laughter, breath, movement and play.
Laughter yoga is a fun and unique exercise that combines laughter, breath, and playful movement. Laughter yoga utilizes the benefits of laughter without the use of humor or jokes. The laughter itself triggers the release of feel good hormones and endorphins. In combination with pranayama, play, and movement, this practice will have you feeling vibrantly alive and energized. Each class is completed with a grounding meditation and savasana to leave you experiencing a balance of peace & joy.
This workshop offers direct experience and practical tools to connect with your inner child. Cailin has been sharing laughter yoga around the world and online over the past 7 years and finds the practice to be an incredibly unifying, fun, and cathartic experience.
Yin yoga invites us to slow down, and mindfully notice the present moment. Postures are held for approximately 1-5 minutes, supporting a deep opening within the connective tissue of the body. Students can expect a relaxing and meditative experience, as we invite each posture to be a short meditation of its own.
The Laughter Yoga Leader training is a two day immersive training that will support you in gaining the confidence and learning the skills necessary to lead a complete laughter yoga class, and to implement this healing practice into your everyday life for your personal health and wellbeing.
No prior experience is necessary to take part in this laughter yoga leader training. This training is for you if you would like to teach laughter yoga classes and/or deepen your own experience with and understanding of laughter yoga.
Laughter Yoga is a fun and unique exercise designed to support both physiological and psychological well being. The practice itself combines laughter, breath, clapping, and playful movement. In laughter yoga, we laugh without the need for humor or jokes. The laughter itself triggers the release of endorphins and feel good hormones, such as dopamine and serotonin, leaving you feeling joyful and relaxed.

This training will teach you the theory behind yin practice, its benefits, how to teach a yin yoga class, and how to include elements of yin in a yang yoga class. Teaching yin as part of a yang yoga classes will allow students to go deeper into their practice. Students will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program.
There are many styles of yoga. Some of them are very active (Yang) while other styles of yoga tend to be more passive (Yin). To create harmony in the body we need to create a balance between the yin and the yang. Whereas the focus of yang yoga practices is on muscle tissue, yin yoga practices focuses on connective tissue including fascia, ligament, tendon, and bone. We need both kinds of practice to maintain optimal health and as we age we need more yin practices.
This certification program is open to everyone; you do not need to be a yoga instructor to attend the program. It is helpful to yoga instructors, personal trainers, any type of group fitness instructors, and students who want to create a home yin practice for themselves.
