Week 14: Our Faces

My body naturally relaxes when I smile

Laughing Yoga

Benefits: Laughing yoga opens the chest; it relieves tension in the face, jaw and throat and stimulates the muscles of the face.

For this pose I will need a yoga mat.

This pose is suitable for all stages of my pregnancy

  • I find a comfortable seat, place my hands lovingly around you and laugh
  • I begin with a little chuckle, which slowly grows into a hearty laugh
  • It is contagious, the more I laugh the more I want to laugh
  • Soon I find myself roaring with laughter and I feel my belly vibrate with my giggles
  • The muscles of my face are energized. I think of you exercising the muscles of your face as you laugh with me
  • I feel happy
  • Mindfully I repeat this week’s affirmation:
    My body naturally relaxes when I smile

Laughing yoga can be fun with family and friends.
