Laughter Yoga is a unique exercise routine that combines intentional and unconditional laughter with yogic breathing (Pranayama). Laughter exercises are interspersed with dynamic and meditative breathing activities to help anyone achieve sustained hearty laughter without involving cognitive thought.
Why is Laughter Yoga unique? During a Laughter Yoga session, we simulate laughter without jokes, humor or comedy. This leads to the same laughter that young children enjoy 300-400 times a day – we call it unconditional laughter. Normal adult laughter is conditional – we only laugh if the trigger meets our conditions. For example, “Is it funny?”, “Is it appropriate to laugh here?”, “Is it appropriate to laugh with these people?” and so on.
Are you ready to laugh intentionally and unconditionally for your health? Let’s laugh together!
