Laughter Yoga is a revolutionary idea! Can exercise include laughter? Can laughter be exercise? The answer is YES! Laughter Yoga is the perfect way to get in touch with your breath, your sense of joy, and relieve stress. It’s also an amazingly effective way to deal with grief, anxiety and fear.
Have you lost your sense of play? We all have! It’s so easy to become logical, analytical, and create pressure, stress, and perfectionism about everything in life! But if you don’t laugh, how can you be happy? People take themselves too seriously!
The laughing in Laughter Yoga is an expression of our natural, inner joy! Anyone can learn to laugh. Feeling stressed or down? You can “fake it until you make it” – and reap the same benefits! It is a childlike, playful experience – remember, you laugh before you can talk, before you can understand jokes. The joy is within you – this practice helps you get in touch with your own inner well of joy.
