Dr. Kataria. Laughter Yoga Founder:The concept of Laughter Yoga on the phone is fast catching on as people are becoming aware of the multiple benefits of laughing daily. Thanks to all laughter professors for taking the initiative to start the telephone laughter clubs. You have created history and shown a new direction to get more and more people laughing on a regular basis. Now I would like the readers to adopt this idea and start more such clubs in other parts of the world.
"LAUGHTER YOGA ON THE PHONE" is a virtual group laughing exercise that unites people the world over in remarkable, spontaneous and hilarious sessions of health and healing. It's easy and it's free.
In 2006, Gaga Barnes, CYLT, in Southern California created "Laughter Yoga on the Phone". She wanted to give a "laughter opportunity" to people who could not attend her group sessions because of health issues or time/distance conflicts. She started with one 20 minute phone call daily.
Today, Gaga and 11 amazing Laughter Yoga leaders and generously contribute their time and resources, offering 10 calls every day / 365 days a year. Each leader has her or his own style and each call is as unique as its host.
Laughing together creates a bond of intimacy, gratitude and relaxation.This encourages playfulness and free flowing laughter as an expression of our hearts' unfettered joy.
In each session you will experience deep breathing, laughing, and also, depending on the host, cheering, singing and other exercises. Using natural sounds like sighing and humming we calm and ground ourselves between bouts of laughing. In joining a Laughter Yoga Phone session, you will: release tension, open your heart, lift your mood, stimulate healing and feel great about the world. This is how our spirits connect and simple joy takes over. Together we acknowledge beauty and celebrate our lives.
Laughter is contagious. When you hear other people's laughter, you will laugh with ease, connect with your child-like playfulness, and experience oneness with others on the call. When we laugh we feel alive and worry free. This brings peace to our souls. When we are peaceful, the world around us becomes peaceful.
What is required? Just you, a phone and laughter. Join in, follow the others on the laughter conference line and you will soon find the world is beautifully colored by laughter.
