Join us this October for Release Your Ecstatic Vibe - a guided, fun, and cathartic adventure - in the heart of Bristol. 

In a space free of judgment, we invite you to join us on a journey through the breath, body, and voice as we move together and collectively approach the powerful and profound practice of laughter yoga, discovering our inner center of joy and allowing for a full-body-mind release. 

Blending traditional spiritual traditions with downright silliness, this session will consist of:

  • Guided meditation and relaxation
  • Pranayama (breathwork)
  • A creative vinyasa yoga flow, incorporating elements of qi gong
  • Nonsense yoga
  • Laughter yoga and improvisation
  • Sharing circle

Please bring with you: a yoga mat, a bottle of water, your inner playful child, and an open mind, whatever depth or serious ridiculousness may arise…

"Beautiful event! Martha's yoga flow felt as an introduction, connecting to the body and getting in touch with the energy within, bringing it up, so Pete can guide it through another powerful, explosive flow. Pete's play was physical and expressive and all the different emotions that came up felt dissolved through laughter. It brought up the child energy and gave it a healing space to be, in dance with other's. Thank you!🙏💚"

“Well organised, motivating, enriching, rewarding, energising and as might be expected..... full of laughter. Martha and Pete are great facilitators!”

“Magical, lush, and explosively silly! I enjoyed this even more than last time and came away with the same joyous, expansive feeling.”

“Incredible experience: holding, powerful and wholesome.”

“Really wonderful, joyful, opening evening. Pete & Matha were great guides... Came away beaming and extremely playful.”
