Jagat Singh Bisht ,CLYT, India: I have been hesitating for quite a while to share what follows here because the subject remains hush-hush and taboo in the land of Kamasutra and Osho even today. We had a gentleman, on the wrong side of fifties, in our laughter sessions who was very punctual – a rare virtue in this part of the world – and sincere. He went through and through the literature available on Laughter Yoga and regularly discussed about its health benefits like better respiration, stronger immunity, stress busting, lower blood pressure and cardio-vascular workout.
One day he confided to me over telephone that his married life has improved immensely and he feels happier as a consequence of regular laughter yoga. He and his wife had almost accepted that their sex life was over by virtue of their age but once they started practicing laughter yoga and meditation, the charm of youth slowly revisited them and they enjoyed a more wholesome life.
While most cases of erectile dysfunction have an underlying physical cause, sometimes sexual dysfunction is the result of stress, depression or other psychological and cultural issues. Laughter Yoga gets rid of physical, mental and emotional stress, is a good cure for mild depression and frees one from the psychological problems. Laughter Yoga may help couples to have a better sex life by relieving stress and bringing about a freer, positive and open approach to life.
