Laughter Yoga

"What soap is to the body, laughter is to the Soul"...Yiddish Proverb

"When you laugh you change, when you change the world changes around you."  
Dr. Madan Kataria
(co-founder of Laughter Yoga International)

Laughter Yoga combines intentional laughter with the healthy breathing of Yoga.

In Laughter Yoga, we do not depend on outside stimulus (jokes, comedy etc.) to make us laugh.  We engage in intentional laughter, never laughing at anyone, but with everyone.

The ability to intentionally laugh for no particular reason is an important part of the personal development of the participants.

We like to say that we are "laughing for the health of it"!!

What is Laughter Yoga & How can it help you?

Everyone wants health and happiness in their lives.  But instead they are getting stressed out , depressed, getting less sleep, more negative thoughts and feeling isolated. Does this sound like you? Are you someone who wants to move on and bring more laughter and joy into your life? You are in the right place. Laughter Yoga is the answer.

Laughter Yoga is a revolutionary idea – simple and profound. An exercise routine, it is sweeping the world and is a complete well-being workout. Developed by a medical doctor from India Dr. Madan Kataria and his wife, Madeira, it has spread across more than 100 countries.

  • You can laugh with special guided techniques: It’s easy. Anyone can laugh for no reason without relying on humor, jokes or comedy and one can feel the benefits on the very first session!
  • Real and Contagious Laughter: We initiate laughter as a body exercise in a group and with eye contact and childlike playfulness. It soon turns into real and contagious laughter.
  • Oxygenates Your Body and Brain: Laughter Yoga is combination of deep breathing exercises from yoga and laughter exercises, which oxygenates our body and brain, makes us feel more healthy and energetic.

 When you generate laughter (for at least 10-15 Minutes) through laughter exercises in a class, club, session or solo practice you can get some pretty amazing physiological and psychological benefits.

 • Boosts the immune system: Practicing laughter quickly increases levels of  anti-viral and anti-infection cells; our immune system's first lines of defense against illnesses.

• Increases oxygen intake: Laughter Yoga improves lung capacity and oxygen levels to the blood, circulating more oxygen rich blood throughout our body and brain.

• Releases endorphins and serotonin: These give the body pain relieving effects and the mind a feeling of well-being that helps increase optimism, self-confidence and feelings of happiness and joy.

• Reduces Blood Pressure: Laughter Yoga engages the body's core muscles and cardiovascular system and can significantly lower systolic and diastolic blood-pressure levels.

• Promotes emotional growth: Social play is critical to the development of social skills and emotional intelligence in children AND ADULTS!

• Relieves stress: Laughter Yoga brings about significant reductions in the stress hormone cortisol and activates the parasympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system giving us a feeling of energy, alertness, well-being, and joy!
