What is Laughter Yoga? We mix unconditional laughter with yogic breathing. It is an exercise. We laugh for no reason and don’t rely on jokes, humor or comedy. We use childlike playfulness and eye contact to create real laughter. It is a scientific fact that the body can’t tell the difference between fake and real laughter. You get the same benefits. You can feel more energy and your spirits are lifted. Laughing away your troubles is possible.
What are the benefits of doing Laughter Yoga? You can feel more calm and relaxed. You can learn to laugh more in your life. Stress and anxiety can be reduced. Depression can be relieved. You can feel more peace and joy. Many people have a more positive attitude from laughing. You can be energized. Health is improved. Some people who do laughter yoga daily have gone off antidepressants. When you laugh and deep breathe for 10 minutes or more consecutively, your mood improves and you feel great. You can feel happier from deep breathing and laughing every day.
I offer you One-on-One Laughter Yoga Coaching. I also do individual sessions. We can laugh together using video calling (Skype or Facebook). If you can use Skype or Facebook, we can play together. Contact me if you need help with video calling.
I also provide laughter sessions for groups, organizations and businesses.
“Laughter Yoga combines laughter with yoga breathing exercises. It is a perfect way to laugh and get exercise at the same time. It approaches laughter as a body exercise so it’s easy to laugh even if you’re depressed or in a bad mood. I’ve tried it, and it works.” Oprah Winfrey
“Laugh! Laugh! Laugh! Anybody who is any body will admire you and you’ll confuse the rest.” Kirsten Flagstad
Five Benefits of Laughter Yoga
Are you stressed, sad and depressed? Do you want to bring more laughter and joy to your life? Here are five benefits that Laughter Yoga offers for your health and wellness:
1. Good Mood and More Laughter: Whether it is your personal life, business life or social life everything you do depends upon your mood state. If your mood is good, you can do things much better. Laughter Yoga helps to change the mood within minutes by releasing certain chemicals from your brain cells called endorphins. You will remain cheerful and in a good mood throughout the day and will laugh more than you normally do.
2. Healthy Exercise to Beat Stress: Laughter Yoga is like an aerobic exercise (cardio workout) which brings more oxygen to the body and brain which makes one feel more healthy and energetic. Laughter Yoga is a simple exercise routine which reduces physical, mental and emotional stress simultaneously.
3. Health Benefits: You can’t enjoy life if you are sick. Laughter Yoga strengthens the immune system which not only prevents you from falling sick, but also helps to heal a variety of illnesses like hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, depression, arthritis, allergies, asthma, bronchitis, backache, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, menstrual disorders, cancer and many others.
4. Quality of Life: Quality of life depends upon quality of good friends we have with whom we have a caring and sharing relationship. Laughter is a positive energy which helps to connect with people quickly and improves relationships. If you laugh more, you will attract many friends.
5. Positive Attitude in Challenging Times: Everyone can laugh when the time is good, but how does one laugh when faced with challenges? Laughter helps to create a positive mental state to deal with negative situations and negative people. It gives hope and optimism to cope with difficult times.
