Laughter Yoga

Join Kathryn Kimmins, Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher, as she leads you through laughter exercises to boost good health! Living with a chronic illness such as Parkinson’s can negatively impact one’s mood and stress levels. Research shows that laughter can help combat low mood and manage stress, which can improve Parkinson’s symptoms.

Laughter positively connects us with others, can reduce the level of stress hormones such as cortisol and increase mood enhancing hormones such as endorphins. Physical benefits linked to laughter include exercising the diaphragm, abdominal muscles, and shoulders which leaves you physically relaxed.

We welcome all individuals with Parkinson’s to this webinar as well as their spouses and/or carepartners/caregivers, to join in the experience of laugher as a form of exercise.
