  1. Laughter yoga is a movement for everyone; it allows people of all ages and physical abilities to laugh and play together and experienced the benefits of laughter and most especially it being used to cure MS .

    • Candice,
      Have you heard of Laughter Yoga before? This is the first time for me! It makes me laugh just thinking about it! I love when something tickles my funny bone so much that I laugh out loud when I’m alone!

  2. I love it whenever people get together and share thoughts. Great website, continue the good work!

  3. I like looking through a post that can make men and women think.
    Also, many thanks for allowing for me to comment!

  4. What fun! It seems that anyone could benefit from laughter yoga, not just people with MS. But nice to know there are such enjoyable treatments available for people with MS. My mother-in-law suffers from it – I’ll pass this along to her. I don’t know if she’s heard of it before! Thank you for sharing 🙂

    • Grace,
      I see that you are also into yoga! I’m sorry that your other mother suffers with ms. I am needing to get into yoga but I’m not really standing for any length of time. Do you have a suggestion of a CD that would be a good yoga workout for me? I can ride my stationary bike for 20 min without problem (most days) and I have pretty good upper body strength, but no ability to stand. I’d like to buy something that I can do right in my home. I’d appreciate some help in choosing! I hope you can help!

      • Linda, I use a book called “Hatha Yoga for beginners” by Ravindra Kumar. Like you I have trouble standing, most of the positions are done on a cushion. Not a lot of laughing in it though!.

        All the best


        • Thanks Peter~
          I do plenty of laughing! I am still looking for the right yoga routine. I really need a movie to follow along, I ride my stationary bike in front of a movie and jump on my trampoline (with the hand rail) in front of a movie I’ll get a CD of some kind one of these days!

  5. It is grateful to have company during yoga lesson. To uplift your inner beauty and make the ambiance that can releases stress in the body. I really like yoga because both mind and body are exercising and reconstruct damage cells into new one. It can reduce aging and hair loss for elders.

    • Resha~
      Yes! Any kink of yoga is awesome and laughter yoga is a hoot! And I can’t wait to get the interview posted we did with Nicole! Very soon! What a riot!
