Benefits of Laughter Yoga

Laughter and Good Mood
LY releases endorphins from your brain cells, keeping you in a good mood all day long.

Exercise for Stress Relief
LY increases heart rate, blood circulation and relaxes muscles like aerobic exercise.

Health Benefits
You will not get sick easily and if you have a chronic health condition, you will heal faster.

Social Networks
Laughter brings people together and fosters quality caring and sharing among friends.

Attitude for Challenges
The power of laughter creates a positive attitude to cope with negative people and situations.

How Does It Work?

Art of Laughing for No Reason
You can laugh for no reason without humor, jokes, or comedy and you'll feel the benefits on the very first session!

Real and Contagious Laughter
Laughter starts as a body exercise in a group and quickly turns into a real, contagious laugh with eye contact.

Science of Breathing
A great way to exhale longer is to laugh as a form of exercise according to the yogic philosophy of breathing.

A day without laughter is a day wasted.
