Welcome to 2019, this group is for everyone and anyone. Why not incorporate laughter therapy into your life and kick start 2019 with a real bundle of belly laughter. Hasya is laughing in Hindi.
I recently trained in Cambodia as a Yoga and Meditation teacher and trained as a Laughter Yoga leader in 2016!
I am certified from the University of East London in Positive Psychology and Coaching, if you would like a one to one positive coaching session please message me.
In addition I am a Indian head massage practitioner.
So what is Laughter Yoga......
Laughter Yoga is based on the body not being able to distinguish between fake and real laughter. Therefore reaping the same health benefits, whether your laughter is real or voluntarily encouraged. Anyone can laugh for no reason without relying on humour, jokes or comedy and one can feel the benefits on the very first session.
The session commences with an easy going warm-up techniques which include clapping and stretching. There will also be some breathing exercises to help oxygenate the mind and body which will be followed by laughter exercises. The exercises will encompass a variety of techniques and childlike playfulness. At the end of the session there will be some laughter meditation
The cardinal rule of Yoga is to slow down your breathing and laughter is just the tool and even smiling. If you stop and think about it when you really laugh from the belly or smile all your thoughts are reduced to minimal this helps to slow your breathing. Laughter will give you the tool to help control and calm your mind. I am also a city professional therefore can understand how the daily grind of the corporate world can effect the pillars of balancing life. I believe you control the mind and not the mind controlling you, my ethos stems from the ancient origins of Yoga where we have 5 layers in our body to bring balance into the human system and promote positive health.
All you need is yourself and a full belly laughter a day to help prevent chronic stress.
