Broadstairs Folk Week – Mornings at Charles Dickens with Photo & Video

Broadstairs Folk Week Laughter Yoga - Charles Dickens Morning Sessions

As part of the Broadstairs Folk Week Festival I ran Laughter Yoga sessions every morning from 8:30am to 9am at The Charles Dickens School, which was also the Festival Campsite. The photo opposite was taken on Friday 15th August 2014, the final morning *sad face* of the week. A really great week and great groups with two or three who came along to the morning sessions every single day and even an afternoon or two at the bandstand I took a very short 22 second Video of our group doing ‘Aloha’ Laughter on the last morning of the 2014 Broadstairs Folk […] Read more »

Broadstairs Folk Week at the Bandstand with Photos

Laughter Session Broadstairs Folk Week 13Aug2014_1

What a great week, we had group Laughter Yoga sessions running at the Broadstairs Bandstand for three afternoons over the Folk Week Festival @FolkWeek. Each day saw a few hundred people sat around the bandstand having sandwiches for lunch with little ones and grown ups dancing on the boards. We started the sessions with a quick talk about what Laughter Yoga is and then got straight into the laughter exercises and breathing and wrapped up the session with a sing song and game.
