MANY of us could do with something to laugh about this year and laughter yoga instructor ‘Merrie’ Maggie Thompson is offering to help bring a few smiles out with her online classes.
Maggie, who has traditionally held regular in-person laughter yoga sessions at Wordsley Green Community Centre as well as at venues in Dudley and Halesowen, has been running virtual laughter yoga sessions through Zoom for the last few months which she says have proven “very successful” so she’s inviting more people to join in.
She said: “The best outcome has been that members from all four of my clubs have been able to laugh with each other during each weekly session, along with some laughter yoga leaders that I have trained and other people from my business contacts.
“At the moment I am running two sessions per week from 5pm for 20 to 30 minutes on Tuesdays and Thursdays.”
People wishing to join in can download the Zoom app on their computer, tablet or smartphone.
The log in details for the Tuesday sessions are: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81547393445 (meeting ID 815 4739 3445) and Thursday: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/505614703 (meeting ID 505 614 703).
Maggie will also be running a laughter yoga basic skills workshop in four weekly sessions on Mondays during October from 7pm to 8.30pm – starting on Monday October 5.
The workshops will give participants a chance to learn more about the benefits of laughter yoga and how they can bring more laughter into their daily lives, Maggie said.
