    Laughing Yoga, Laughing Matters

    in Caregiving

    For years we have heard that Laughter is the Best Medicine.  A doctor in India founded a movement of Laughter Yoga which has spread to more than 60 countries.  Got nothing to laugh about?  You can get the same benefits from faking it. “Fake it until you make it.”
    Sandra Boris-Berkowitz, M.Ed., LRC, is a Laughter Yoga Leadercertified by the Dr. Kataria School of Laughter Yoga. She is also a teacher and a licensed rehabilitation counselor.
    Over 25 years ago, Dr. Norman Cousins in his book Anatomy of an Illness described how watching Marx Brother movies helped him recover from a life-threatening tissue disease.
    "Is it possible," he wondered, "that love, hope, faith, laughter, and confidence and the will to live have therapeutic value?" Cousins made it a point to enjoy a hearty belly laugh several times a day. A few minutes of laughter gave him an hour or more of pain-free sleep.
    Scientific studies have proved that hearty laughter has a powerful and immediate strengthening effect on our immune system.
    Laughter quickly increases immunoglobulin levels that help fight infection and increases the number of Natural Killer Cells (NK cells) in the blood. Natural killer cells play a key role in cancer prevention. Dr Berk took blood samples from subjects watching humorous videos and found that natural killer cells increased significantly with laughter. The NK cells in blood samples from laughing subjects quickly killed cancer cells he introduced into the samples.
    There is medical evidence that laughter releases natural hormones (endorphins) which help you feel good.  Laughter reduces stress, increases energy, boosts the immune system, provides natural pain relief, and improves brain functioning.
    One minute of laughter is equivalent to 6-10 minutes on a treadmill.  Fifteen minutes of laughter a day can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.

    in Health

    Helene (pronounced Heleen) Couvrette, is founder of H~OM Yoga Center/School, co-founder MISTY , contributor of inspirational articles in a local paper and mother of 4 awesome kids.


    Heleen began her journey in 1999. Her passion for yoga inspired her to share yoga with a few friends in the basement of one of whom eventually lost her battle with cancer. Heleen soon realized her love of yoga could only be surpassed by the desire to share it and the joy of seeing others benefit from it on many levels.


    In 2002 just after delivering a stillborn boy Heleen embarked on a 200hr YTT Certification Course. During 2003-2004 Heleen continued the course, began teaching yoga at the St. Lazare Community Center and best of all, gave birth to a wonderful baby girl!


    * Starting Fall 2015 Heleen will also be leading an therapeutic advanced 300hr YTT.


    H~OM Yoga Wellness Center opened its doors July 2007. Since then Heleen has been committed to providing the community with a place to find peace and healing of mind, body and spirit for souls of all ages and abilities. The response has been overwhelmingly supportive, demonstrating a common need for all to “breathe in” a space that has the energy of a warm family hearth.


    Heleen has over 4000 hours of teaching since 2004, her continued education over the years includes workshops with wonderful mentors such as Dharma Mittra, Bo Forbes, Susie Hately Ray Long, Rod Stryker, Kelly Mcgonigal, Gary Kraftsow, Leslie Kaminoff, Neil Pearson, Seane Corn, Rodney Yee, Leeann Carey, Yogi Vishvketu, Mark Whitwell among others.


    In Sept 2010, H~OM Yoga Wellness Center became a Registered Yoga School and Heleen taught her introductory 200hr YTT Program. Heleen continues to teach regular yoga classes with a therapeutic approach, offers Private Yoga Therapy and mentors a 200hr Yoga Teacher Training.

    Mitchell Speaks with Swami Beyondananda & Wake Up Laughing!

    in Lifestyle

    Today’s guest is the venerable, Jewish-born, holy man from Brooklyn, who did his pranams & sadhana on the Borscht Belt, Steve Bhaerman, aka Swami Beyondananda. Steve is the author of Swami for Precedent: a 7-Step Plan to Heal the Body Politic & Cure Electile Dysfunction. Tune in today to hear the wit & wisdom of this out-of-the-box thinker. Steve is also the co-author with Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., cellular biologist, of the popularSpontaneous Evolution CD series.


    Purchase Swami’s books & CD’s here.


    Swami Beyondananda is the cosmic comic alter ego of writer, humorist, performer and uncommontator Steve Bhaerman. The Swami, whose favorite yoga pose is tongue-in-cheek, is the spokesperson for a new non-religion, FUNdamentalism (accent on “fun”). Says the Swami, “We are strictly non-dominational.”


    Steve was pursuing a career as a teacher and writer, when a funny thing happened. The name “Swami Beyondananda” flew into his head on day in 1979. As Steve tells it, “I got struck by enlightening during a brainstorm.”  


    Swamiji, aka Steve Bhaerman, was also on A Better World Rado


    Mitchell and Steve are old friends and did the first interview at the ISEEEM Conference in Boulder in 2008. A Better World & New Realities sponsored Swami Beyondananda in NYC at the MetaCenter in June, 2011.  www.wakeuplaughing.com
