I didn't find that I received any real "exercise" from this class. It is labeled as a yoga class, but I didn't feel that any yoga was actually done. It was mainly focused on laughing. I think there's probably an audience for this type of class, but calling it yoga is a bit misleading. Instructor was nice, however.

I think the instructor is great. She kept the class spirit going even though I was the only student. It would be great if some of the other Groupon purchasers had attended. I did get personal attention, though.

Leigh Ann was just wonderful, definitely knows her stuff. I really enjoyed the class, I had a lot of fun and I am planning to return soon for another class now that I have gotten my feet wet. Laughter IS the best medicine!

From Our Editors

Ataraxia Wellness Concern borrowed their name from an ancient Greek term used to describe a state free from worry or preoccupation; a state, which in their belief, can be attained through the power of laughter. With their laughter-yoga curriculum, the Ataraxia crew share a therapeutic art form that was created in 1995 by Madan Kataria, MD. Although Dr. Kataria was living in India at the time, his method for self-induced wellness has spread to 65 countries around the globe.

Instructors use eye contact and their own chortling bellows to induce laughter without cracking jokes or hiring one to three stooges on staff. They blend childlike playfulness with yogic breathing, working in themes such as disco dancing or pirates to stimulate the body’s natural release of endorphins and serotonin. In addition to considering it as a form of emotional and psychological catharsis, they believe laughing may also help improve cardiovascular and pulmonary function since laughter itself can be an aerobic workout. Even if their students aren’t in a laughing mood, they encourage them to come and chuckle anyhow, as just faking a chuckle can be enough to trick the body into feeling better.
