De-Stressing with Nutrition Coaching and Laughter Yoga
New Year's Nutrition Coaching: Get back on track!
with Nicki Edgell
Laughter Yoga
with Emma Hiwaizi

Want to start the new year by getting back on track with your diet after the festive season? Do you feel totally confused about how to regulate your weight and energy levels? Does the advice you have been given seem to conflict? Do you eat three meals per day or six? Do you detox, fast or never skip a meal? Do you have a low-fat diet or a high-protein diet? Nicki Edgell, our clinical psycho-neuro-immunologist, will talk about the Metabolic Balance and the impact of modern day stress on our metabolism, our weight, our circadian rhythm and our behaviour. Nicki will dispel some myths around what we are to eat for health. She will outline practical ways to restore our natural circadian rhythm and metabolism by making a few simple changes to bring about optimum weight and bundles of energy to have the life you want.

Laughter Yoga is a unique exercise system which combines deep breathing with laughter exercises. Laughter Yoga was created 18 years ago by an Indian doctor in Mumbai who wanted to share the healing power of laughter with as many people as possible. Sessions include songs, games, laughter exercises, deep breathing and a laughter meditation. Laughter boosts endorphin levels, boosts the immune system, can help to alleviate stress and anxiety and can help us get in touch with the more playful and creative aspects of ourselves... Emma Hiwaizi stumbled on Laughter Yoga by chance - but has found it a profoundly helpful tool for dealing with the stresses and strains of modern life. She is the co-founder of Brighton Laughter Club and has been running regular laughter sessions for almost 4 years. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring some water to drink!

The Brighton StressBusters Team is looking forward to welcoming you all to this exciting event!
