So much hard news is hitting us every day. From border walls and government shutdowns to climate change and political nastiness. Yikes!

The stress aftermath does a number on our minds and our bodies.

It's easy to find ourselves:

Overdoing and getting burnt out Getting overwhelmed or depressed and tuning out Wanting to do something but feeling paralyzed and unable to take action

Lightening Up about News Overload is not about making fun of truly bad things happening in the world.

It IS about:

Having a safe space to express and release tension Finding healthy ways to transform stress Learning to stay present and connected with yourself and others Aiming towards living zestfully, regardless of what's going on At this workshop we will learn to stop and take a breath. To move our bodies. To laugh with others. To explore living joyfully. To regain our ability to relax. To act flexibility, effectively and sustainably.

We'll use laughter, movement, play and mindfulness practices to move you from stressed out to feeling energized and empowered!

Join us to get your joy on with tools such as:

Laughter Yoga Deep breathing Intentional sharing InterPlay Healing Movement and more
