You Already Have The Secret To Happiness (and it’s free)! Let’s Talk Laughter Yoga.
Just as much as we need to cry, we also need to laugh! Laughter yoga aims to bring you pure bliss based on the principle that on-command laughter brings on similar physiological and psychological benefits as spontaneous laughter. I mean, why not at least give it a try?
Laughter releases endorphins that can act like a natural medicine for your body. For those who are working through an illness like arthritis, migraine, chronic inflammation, fibromyalgia, autoimmune disease (and more), laughter can begin to undo the long term negative effects of stress and boost the immune system.
Additionally, laughter can boost the mood significantly by reducing cortisol and increasing serotonin- providing healing to the body for those who suffer from anxiety or stress overload. Laughter is free, simple and accessible and when it’s combined with the breath and mindful movement of yoga, the body responds in an incredible way - leaving you full of gratitude, joy and excitement!
Laughter yoga has become a widespread practice, available in over 110 countries. It’s a universal way of communication which makes for effortless bonds amongst the group. Classes typically last for a half hour and combine laughter with traditional yoga stretches as well as meditation and breath work. By the end, the laughter most likely will be genuine, and potentially even uncontrollable!
