Health Luncheon - Laughter Yoga
You’ve probably heard the saying, “laughter is the best medicine’’. It also makes for a great workout, just ask Sue Thompson, certified Laughter Yoga instructor. Thompson will be sharing her tips for a great laugh at RiverView’s Thursday, March 23rd health luncheon.
Laughter Yoga is a complete well-being workout developed by Dr. Madan Kataria, a medical doctor from India. Thompson received her certification training in 2012 from Dr. Kataria and has since conducted Laughter Yoga sessions with children, inmates, businesses, government agencies, senior citizens and various civic organizations throughout Minnesota and North Dakota.
The luncheon will be held in Meeting Room #1 of RiverView Health, 323 S. Minnesota Street, beginning at noon. Meeting Room #1 is located near the RiverView Clinic entrance on the north side of the building and across from the elevators on first floor.
The luncheon series is in its 19th year of sponsorship by RiverView Health. All men and women interested in improving their health are invited to attend. Each luncheon starts a few minutes past noon and luncheons are kept under one hour so those needing to return to work can attend. Pre-registration is required. A boxed lunch can be purchased for $3, but must be ordered while pre-registering for the event. Call Holly Anderson at 218-281-9745 for additional information and to pre-register.
