Laughter Yoga with Dr. Siddharth Ashvin Shah

Falls Church, VA 22046
The holiday season brings with it a desire for an outlet to discharge our nervous energy…and laughter is as earthy as it gets. Laughter Yoga is a gentle set of exercises that facilitate the parts of us that are wired for joy. Our facilitator, Dr. Siddharth Ashvin Shah, is a physician with certifications in both laughter yoga and trauma-sensitive yoga. He has provided similar workshops at The World Bank, Unity Health Care, NASA (Goddard), for national conference keynotes, and even for the teaching staff of his daughters’ preschool.
The insight of Laughter Yoga is that we can laugh in ways that benefit us even when there is nothing funny. When we laugh with our whole being, we engage our body and our brain in a cascade of positive physiological, mental, and interpersonal pathways. No special clothes or getting on the floor is necessary.
In addition to leading us through numerous laughter experiences, Dr. Shah will present some of the neurophysiologic basis for laughter yoga as well as invite the group in a dialogue of laughter’s real-world significance.
This event is also a fundraising benefit for the Arlington Free Clinic. We bow deeply to our local helpers, healers & protectors.
