What is Laughter Yoga?

Laughter Yoga is a special exercise routine with simulated laughter and deep Yogic breathing. There are special techniques used to simulate laughter which soon becomes genuine – meaning there’s no need to be happy to laugh. 
Read what happens in a workshop here.

Regular (being weekly or monthly) wellbeing laughter workshops are proven to really help both mental health and physical health. These are just a few ways they help:
– Reduces stress and relieves anxiety
– Enables you to cope with challenges
– Creates positivity when not happy
– Improves your immune system
– Boosts social connection and confidence

Laughter Yoga isn’t a new activity – it was founded in 1995 by Dr Madan Kataria and is now in over 116 countries.  See the founder’s website here for more indepth knowledge and research.  The popularity of Laughter Yoga (or laughing yoga, yoga laughter as it is occasionally called) is becoming more and more in demand because the practice works exceptionally well and is very accessible to those with mobility issues. 

The exercises help to improve resilience to life and work challenges and are in fact a complete mind and body workout.  

Helping companies to melt employees’ stress, boost moral, have less sickness absences.  Motivate, energise and produce the most brilliant creative ideas.
