Laughter Yoga is a breakthrough laughter delivery system that changes your body chemistry within minutes resulting in a much better mood and sense of relaxation. If your mood is good, everything feels better and you are functioning at optimum levels.
Laughter Yoga is a unique concept where anyone can laugh without having to rely on jokes or funny situations. Laughter is initiated as an exercise
in a group. With eye contact it soon develops into contagious laughter. It’s a powerful cardio workout: in fact 10 minutes of hearty laughter equal 30 minutes of exercise on a rowing machine.
Anyone can do it; it is scientifically proven; easy to learn, and a lot of fun. People can feel the benefits right from the very first session.
Laughter is the best medicine. It decreases the many negative effects of stress which is the root cause of over 80% of all illnesses. It releases blockages and brings more oxygen to body and brain which makes one feel more energetic and healthy.
In order to get the scientifically proven benefits of laughter, one should laugh for 15 to 20 minutes a day and laughter should be hearty and loud. This is rarely possible as natural laughter is conditional and comes for few seconds here and there which is not enough to result in any health benefits.
The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on the scientifically proven fact that the body cannot distinguish between fake and real laughter. Even if some people might feel a bit awkward in the beginning of the exercise, this feeling soon gives way to a sense of being energized, more joyful and more relaxed.
It has been shown in many studies from reputable doctors and medical research institutions from all over the world that laughter leads to:
- Enhanced Immune System
- Lowered Blood Pressure
- Relaxed Muscles
- Improved Blood Circulation
- Increased Oxygen Levels
- Elevated Mood
- More Hope
Practicing Laughter Yoga brings more joy to your life. You develop a sense of humor as well as a readiness to laugh and smile. You will feel more self confident and optimistic. Laughter Yoga helps to keep our spirits high in the face of challenges and to bounce back much quicker from stressful situations.
Laughter Yoga was started by the Indian physician Dr. Madan Kataria with just five people in a public park in Mumbai in 1995. Now there are thousands of laughter clubs in more than 80 countries all over the world.
