Meredith and David Vaughn
A former Yoga, Chi Kung, and Meditation instructor, Meredith Vaughn and husband David studied with Dr. Madan Kataria to become certified Laughter Yoga leader-teachers. Together, they have brought laughter to rec centers, schools, prisons, church groups, and homeless shelters. They lead the Denver Laughter Club which meets every Monday at noon at the First Unitarian Church, 1400 Lafayette St. Laughter Yoga is a blend of laughter exercises, simple yogic stretches, diaphragmatic breathing and deep relaxation. Among the benefits of laughing are stress reduction, lowered blood pressure, increased oxygenation, endorphin release, depression and anxiety reduction, aerobic exercise, immune system enhancement, and connection with others.
