Alexa Drubay's style of yoga will get you laughing
When you head to a yoga class led by Alexa Drubay, leave your mat behind. You won't be doing downward-facing dog or a sun salutation. But if you're like the majority of her students, you'll leave class feeling less stressed and more at peace.
It's all thanks to laughter yoga, which combines deep breathing and mindfulness meditation with playful games and spontaneous laughter. Laughter yoga is believed to reduce stress hormones, lift the mood and relax the mind and body.
Alexa leads laughter yoga classes in her community, at hospitals and in corporate settings. Andy talked with Alexa at Temple University Hospital after she wrapped up a class with a group of patients.
