Laughter & Seniors

Where our society once saw aging as disease, our attitudes are shifting. We are now seeing potential. Naturally, the physical and social benefits of Laughter Yoga are a perfect fit with these ripening attitudes.

Dr. Gene Cohen, groundbreaking geriatric psychiatrist and world expert on Creativity and Aging, wrote extensively about phases of psychological growth and development in the second half of life. He wrote that the second half of life evolves from mid-life re-evaluation to finding new ways to contribute and, finally, to the encore where every day is a joy. In other words, as people who have been too busy or too scared to laugh in public begin to age, they become more willing to try something new. Often, upon reflection, they want more joy.

In addition, seniors are seeking joy in the face of loss: friends, family, liberty, health, and more. Isolation and depression are rampant. If they have relocated to an assisted living or nursing home, they feel forgotten. Seniors flourish when they experience the unconditional joy of Laughter Yoga. Further, since Laughter Yoga exercises are flexible to accommodate any level of ability, all seniors can experience the powerful medical benefits of laughter.

Jody has extensive experience leading Laughter Yoga sessions with seniors of all abilities. Her workshops empower seniors to infuse their lives with greater joy and social connection, while enjoying the medical benefits crucial to their vitality: reduced pain, lowered blood pressure, alleviated depression and anxiety, boosted immune system, and decreased upper respiratory infections.

What’s more, Jody offers Intergenerational Laughter Yoga classes so that seniors can enjoy this invigorating exercise with family and friends of all ages.
