In a nutshell

Laughter yoga is a practice involving prolonged voluntary laughter along with breathing techniques that originate from Yoga. We usually laugh for between 3-5 seconds, in a laughter yoga session we will laugh for between 10-15 minutes, of deep belly laughter. This is the type of laughter that gives us all the health benefits and the benefits will remain with us for a good 24 hours after the session! The body reacts in the same way whether the laughter is forced or natural, releasing the endorphin’s (happy hormones). It is these endorphin’s that kick in and fight stress, boost our immune system and make us feel good in so many ways. Laughter yoga is experienced in groups, with eye contact, yogic breathing and playfulness between participants. All that is required of the participants is a Willingness to Laugh!

We sometimes have an Optional Social at a cafe after the workshop.

Stay as long or as short as you like. A chance to continue with conversation and laughter amongst new friends in a nearby cafe or pub.

What to bring

Wear something you are comfortable to move in and we will probably lie on the floor for a short ending mediation at some point! so if you like bring a Yoga/Camping Mat and cushion or you could roll your coat up and improvise! Bring some water or purchase from the bar. Laughter is thirsty work!

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ

Laughter Yoga is not a substitute for medical consultation for physical, mental and psychological illnesses, but is a powerful natural complementary form of healing. It is like any other aerobic exercise and may not be suitable for everyone as it involves some physical strain and a rise in intra-abdominal pressure.

Some people may have pre- existing medical conditions and one should take reasonable precaution before doing laughter exercises or indeed any form of exercise.

It is contraindicated for people suffering from: Any kind of hernia, Heart disease with angina pain, Persistent cough with breathlessness, Uncontrolled high blood pressure, Incontinence of urine, Epilepsy, Advanced (bleeding) piles and haemorrhoids or any bleeding tendencies in any part of the body, Severe backache, Any acute symptoms of cough, cold and fever. People who have undergone major surgery should wait at least three months before doing Laughter Yoga.

If in doubt first consult a medical professional for guidance. Anyone undergoing physician-prescribed therapy that experiences improvements through laughter should seek the advice of their doctor before reducing dosage or stopping treatment.

nocturne – the romantic life of frederic chopin

HIGHGATEHASHEART is delighted to announce a fundraising concert, “Chopard & Champagne” on Sunday 19th November in support of vital refugee causes.

“Nocturne – The Romantic Life of Frederic Chopin is an evening of music and drama conceived by the internationally renowned concert pianist Lucy Parhamwith narrations by the celebrated actors Henry Goodman and Juliet Stevenson(a co-founder of Highgate Has Heart and local resident). The programme of words and music has been scripted and adapted from letters and diaries by Parham, chronicling the romantic life of one the greatest and most popular composers for solo piano – Frédéric Chopin. The narrative follows his turbulent relationship with the controversial literary figure George Sand, their time together in Majorca, his fragile health and his ultimate demise in poverty in Paris at the age of 39. The readings, with Frederic Chopin narrated by Goodman and George Sand by Stevenson, are interspersed with some of his most loved and poignant compositions played by Parham in the evocative setting of Lauderdale House.

Tickets includes drinks reception and concert performance.

Drinks reception from 7pm with concert starting at 8pm. The evening will end at 10pm with a short interval.

“Lucy Parham’s trailblazing evening concerts in which she fuses music and words with the help of some of our most distinguished actors, have become one of the must-see events on the musical calendar.”
