Laughter Yoga is based on the concept of laughing purely because it’s good for us. It’s not based on jokes, but rather incorporating into gentle exercise a willingness to laugh, plus yogic breathing (Pranayama). With a sense of playfulness, this soon leads to real laughter! Through these we can experience joyfulness, a relaxed body, a calm mind, and social connection: this is being in a state of Yoga.

Laughing helps us rebalance ourselves by decreasing stress hormones, increasing antibodies to fight infections, lowering resting blood pressure, releasing endorphins which give us the “feel good factor”, and improving respiration and circulation. Come together for a chuckle and a jolly good laugh, and, of course, some gentle exercise.
