Orlando comedy club is using improv to fight anxiety
SAK Comedy Lab is hosting a new wellness-based improv class to help those who suffer from anxiety to live more meaningful lives.
Improv For Anxiety uses improv to create an experimental learning environment to practice handling feelings in a new way. Through basic improv exercises, participants in the classes will learn how to use non-judgement, acceptance and present moment awareness to address their thoughts and feelings that can get in the way of their living experience.
Chris Dinger is the creator and instructor of this workshop course, and is also a professional performer and Managing Director of SAK Comedy Lab. While Dinger is not a therapist, and insists that the workshop isn’t meant to replace therapy, the workshop is intended to be an exploration of the process that helped lift him out of his persistent anxiety and depression.
This class lasts six weeks, with each class being two hours long apart from the first class. The first class is a 3.5-hour workshop that will give participants important foundational skills that will help them in the remaining five weeks.
Tuition for the workshop is $230 per person, and all classes are for those age 16 and older. A non-refundable, non-transferable deposit of $130 is required to enroll.
