Don’t you just love those two words!  Makes you giggle just to say them.  Our upcoming Flourish event is all about being “tickled pink”, “in the pink” and all things pink & girlie – pampering, playing, indulging, shopping, eating, drinking, girlfriends, chatting, and laughing.  We’ve got it all put together into one fabulously fun afternoon in Portland’s South Waterfront at the beautiful Rilassi Coffee House.    Tickled Pink is for women of all ages who are ready to carve out a little bit of me time and get their PINK on.   Hope you can join us!

Here’s an invitation with more details or go to the Flourish website and sign up.

Curious about Laughter Yoga?  We were to, so Flourish set out to learn more and share it with our Flourish members at our February Salon featuring Laughter Yoga with Portland’s laughter yoga guru, Andrea Crisp.

Talk about a giggled-filled afternoon.  We laughed so hard our abs hurt, our faces were tired and we felt soooo good when we were done!  We highly recommend Laughter Yoga.  It’s great for stress release, a fab workout and it just makes you feel wonderful.  Professional photographer Pauline Zonneveld captured these laughing moments.

Can it be that laughter really is the best medicine?

Everyone’s been raving about Laughter Yoga so we just have to try it too.  Even Oprah’s team is in on this laugh.  

So how does Laughter Yoga work?  It starts with a few chuckles, grows into giggles and then launches into genuine belly laughs – and when you mix in some yogic breathing and stretches, it becomes Laughter Yoga.

We thought it sounded  like a fun way to reduce stress, improve circulation, lower blood pressure and we’re told it can even tone your abs, so we sought out Portland’s leading Laughter Yogi to show us how.

Meet our expert…Andrea Crisp is leading the Laughter Yoga movement in the Northwest.  laughteryoga31smallShe is a certified Laughter Yoga Leader & Teacher and the founder of Portland Laughter Yoga and Awakenings Laughter Club.  She is also a certified health counselor and graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

Join us for a giggle-filled afternoon as we learn all about this health phenomenon that is sweeping the world.  All that and a great brunch and champagne too!
