What Is Laughter Yoga?

Laughter Yoga is a physically-oriented technique that uses a perfect blend of playful, empowering and otherwise "tension-releasing" laughter and breathing exercises. These exercises are simple, structured, and based on the philosophy of "acting happiness". They are appropriate and beneficial for all, regardless of their cognitive, sensorial or motor abilities / limitations You do not need to have a sense of humor, be happy or have any reason to laugh.

Laughter is the Best Medicine! Humans were designed to laugh. Laughter is nature's stress buster. It lifts our spirits with a happy high that makes us feel good and improves our behavior towards others. Just a few generations ago happy healthy humans spent 20 minutes a day or more in laughter. Now adult daily laugh time is down to 5 minutes or less in many countries. This is one of the worst aspects of 'modern life'.

Laugh yourself healthy: we all know that laughter makes us feel good. A regular 20 minute laughter session can have a profound impact on our health and well being. Laughter is gentle exercise. It fill your lungs and body with oxygen, deep-clears your breathing passages and exercises your lungs. This is really important for people who don't get regular aerobic exercise. When we laugh our bodies release a cocktail of hormones & chemicals that have startling positive effects on our system. Stress is reduced, blood pressure drops, depression is lifted, your immune system is boosted & more. Western science is just starting to discover the great effects of laughter.
