What is Laughter Yoga?
Laughter Yoga (www.laughteryoga.org) is a unique new physical activity that blends playful and energizing laughter exercises with gentle yogic breathing and rhythmic clapping and chanting. It is fun & easy! No sweat pants or yoga mat required. During the second half of a session we use intentional laughter as a tool, not an emotion during laughter meditation - we just sit or lay back and laugh!
Through group activity and eye contact, simulated laughter quickly becomes real, contagious and enthusiastic. By the time the laughter meditation starts people usually have no problem tapping into their inner laugh. I love Laughter Yoga for its ease and simplicity. Laughter has so many physical, spiritual, emotional and social benefits and anyone can do it!
