Laughter Yoga

Laughter Yoga is a new exercise program that has been implemented at Westwood Senior Apartments over the past year. This fun concept is a mind-and-body exercise that initiates powerful positive changes in people’s minds, bodies and emotions. Laughter Yoga is based on the scientific fact that even if you laugh as an exercise, your body can’t tell the difference, and you can gain the same physiological benefits. In addition to helping brighten a person’s mood, Laughter Yoga promotes deep breathing techniques that increase the flow of oxygen throughout the body. Tracey Pavlatos, our Life Enrichment Coordinator, hosts a group on a weekly basis that everyone seems to enjoy. In the words of one resident, “I love this laughter yoga! It makes me feel good. I think everyone should do it!”
