Laughter PlayShop: Fun, Play and Spontaneity - In Benefit of Philippines


 We must laugh before we are happy for fear of dying without having laughed at all.

 Jean De La Bruyere      

Please join us for two hour session where we will immerse ourselves into play and laughter with laughter yoga exercises. No prior experience is required, just willingness to participate and play.

If you are new to laughter yoga, you will find this as an easy and gentle introduction into laughter yoga. This is a closed, intimate space where we will explore play and playful in a more relaxed environment.

Laughter Yoga is an active form of exercise with lots of play and playfulness. Laughter comes easily and effortless through play,  being playful. We work with psychology of laughter and put into practice the techniques that generate laughter. Laughter yoga session isn't a comedy, nor aims to be funny, as we are being ourselves and explore unconditional play and laughter.

Laughter and play helps to:

- bring back the joie de vivre -

-relax mentally and physically -

- reduce stress -

- relate to yourself and others in a playful way -

- helps with self acceptance & self love -

- eases anxiety and depression -

- improves social and communication skills -

- improves emotional resilience & listening -

- helps you to be joyful & present -

- helps you to accept the moment now -

- the more you laugh, the more you can laugh -

- the easier you can laugh, it gets easier to help others to laugh -


In fact, research shows that good humor and laughter may:

Buffer you against depression

    Hi I've only been to one Laughter Yoga session at Findhorn in Scotland and always wanted to attend more. I live on the Isle of Wight but on 17 Nov will be staying with my daughter in London and so can attend. Looking forward to it

    Do you need a minimum number of attendees to run the session?

      Hi Carole, that's great, no we don't need a minimum number, the workshop will go ahead even one person, i.e. myself:)

    Hi Nihat, does "closed intimate space" mean we have a private room at southbank?Or are we in public space?

    November 4, 2013

    • Nat T.

      Hi Helen, it's at a different venue in Barons court, yes it's private airy room. Thank you for pointing it out, I've just updated it.
