Anyone, experienced or new to the sport, is welcome to join!

Where: Group meets at 5:30 pm at Bronfman Building (1001 Sherbrooke W.), and walks down to the Atrium at 1000 de la Gauthetière.

Friday, February 8 - Laughter Yoga with Liliana de Leo

Not the yoga class you might be expecting! Leave your yoga mat at home, and just come ready to have fun and laugh yourself healthy with Liliana de Leo, certified laughter yoga instructor. Take part in a series of voluntary ‘laughter exercises’ guaranteed to turn into real and contagious laughter, which can help reduce stress and boost the immune system. 

More contagious than a cough or sneeze, laughter relaxes the whole body. It triggers the release of endorphins, promoting an overall sense of well-being. Good for chasing away those 'winter blues'!

When:  Friday, February 8

Time: 12:00 noon - 1:00 pm

Where: Presbyterian College Auditorium, 3495 University Avenue

To register: Go here       

Reminder: No yoga mats required!

Coming soon!

The Health & Wellbeing team is planning more free lunchtime events with Jill Barker of McGill Athletics and Dr. Steven Grover and Dr. Debbie da Costa of C.H.I.P. (The McGill Comprehensive Health Improvement Program).  In March, there will be a draw for the chance to participate in the ever-popular cooking workshop with Chef Oliver de Volpi, a session on Financial Planning with a CPA (Member of the Chartered Professional Accountants Canada), and be sure to catch Dr. Joe Schwarcz later in the semester!

Stay tuned for updates!
