University Sport

General Information about Courses and Program

Dear students,

In the last year the University sport had to be stopped and we went digital. Unfortunately, since the Covid-19 situation has worsened, I’ll have to stop University sport in its usual form for this semester.

Laugther Training – The Slightly Different Study Break

Happy study break – try our laughter training to boost your energy and concentration for your exam period

  • Instructor: Lara Pschorn
  • When: Mondays 9 a.m. - 9.30 a.m. (Power-Session) and Thursdays 6 p.m. - 6.30 p.m. (Balance-Session)
  • Where: MS-Teams (please follow the link)
  • Start: February 9, 2021 - March 11, 2021 (only the first session is on a Tuesday)

---- Internationals welcome: we will practice easy exercises that are usually self-explanatory and quick to translate! And if we get lost for words – we just laugh about it. ----

In our 30-minute online sessions, we will practice exercises on the basis of laughter training. It helps to free your mind for a while, recharge your batteries and boost your attention for the next study session. In our Power Sessions (mornings) we collect energy for our day, in our Balance Sessions (evenings) we end the day on a positive note and focus on the next tasks at hand.

Everything you need to participate is a device with camera and microphone and access to MS Teams – you can participate from the comforts of your own home.

The group exercises are not about humour, jokes or comedy. Instead, we’ll practice easy routines using laughter, clapping, stretching and breath. Our exercises have a playful note, enabling us to stay in the moment and leave stress and worries behind for a while. Each session is round off with a relaxation period to focus our energy. The exercises are suitable for every age group - no special requirements needed.
By the way: 2 minutes of laughter is said to be just as healthy for body and mind as 20 minutes of jogging. By releasing endorphins, it acts like a superfood for your overall well-being. Consequently, laughing is a powerful tool for everyone.

If you’re curious now and want to add more laughter and joyfulness to your study life, I’m happy to see you in the next session!

Disclaimer: We take laughing seriously and never laugh about others!

This offer is part of the university sports program and free of charge for all students of Hochschule Geisenheim University.
