What is Laughter Yoga ?

Laughter yoga is not comedy – Laughter Yoga is a form of exercise which combines deep breathing techniques from Yoga, with a series of laughter exercises to create an effective and unique exercise program.

  • to reduce stress
  • boost your immune system
  • and keep your mind positive

Laughter Yoga is based on the science that the body cannot differentiate between simulated and genuine laughter,so the physiological and psychological benefits are the same.  Laughing for no reason is the main philosophy of Laughter Yoga.

Why Laughter Yoga ?

Laughter Yoga is scientifically proven exercise routine to help you:

  • Reduce stress in your life
  • Improve your ability to cope with stress
  • Boost your immune system
  • Recover more quickly from many chronic conditions
  • Improve your Health & Happiness
  • Find your inner joy
  • Generally bring more positivity into your life
  • Laugh for no reason, even during your most challenging times

So many scientific studies around the world have now proven what our elders already knew and said to us – that laughter really is the best medicine!

If you would like to bring more laughter and joy into your life, Laughter Yoga was made for you!
