What you'll do

Based on laughing therapy and laughter yoga, during a one-hour session of a modern technic adapted to our daily life, we will forget all our worries and we will laugh for no reason.  So we will gather in a group and start with some exercises of Pranamaya breathing (the art of breathing) and some kapalabhati breathing, the breathing used by the yogi to relax and create a synergy within the group. We will slightly move from these breaths to some exercises to trigger some easy laughter. This transition allows me to accompany you with some theories and indication to locate the laughters within the body. It had been proven that the body doesn't make the difference between a fake laugh and a real one. And that actually in less than 10 seconds, a fake laugh becomes a real one. So don't worry if you are shy! Laughing increases blood flow by 50 percent and releases chemicals that activate sérotonine and dopamine in our brain.  This activation will allow us to laugh more and more. Many other studies lead to assume that: "We don't laugh because we are happy but we are happy because we laugh."Madan Kataria  I strongly believe it's true. As the laughing increases, our joy does too. We will finish by a meditation and a moment to share together what we feel. Laughing is the shortest distance between two people and is a necessary element in every long successful relationship!

Thomas

My name is Thomas Cock. I was born In Congo but raised in Belgium. I lived innocent days till we started English classes at school… I immediately switched to Spanish. After, I think I just kept the rhythm of changing and exploring new paths. I moved to Montreal where I became humorist and performed at JUST FOR LAUGH, to Paris, where I was an actor, to San Francisco where I worked for NGOs. There, I really discovered how laughing could heal. Laughing was such a journey so far and when 2 years ago, the customs officer reading my passport said: “it is a pity, to a letter close, you were Thomas Cook”. I started to organize tours, making jokes then comedy dinners and from a thing to another, Laughing therapy popped up in my life and since then, I chose to practice laughter yoga as a sinecure for my own life and to share its virtues.

Where you'll be

Let's play outside! Let's reconnect with nature! The Estrela Parc is probably my favorite place on earth. Portugal has a very old monarchy and at the time Kings used to impress each other with their gardens. Portugal brought trees from all over its imperial colonies to build this parc. Such a rich variety and atmosphere: People dancing swing in the kiosk, wearing vintage clothes, improvising picnics... Ps : if too cold, we do it in a yoga club
