The Concept of Laughter Yoga 

So What is Laughter Yoga?

Laughter Yoga is a unique concept where anyone can laugh for no reason, without relying on humour, jokes or comedy.

We initiate laughter as an exercise in a group, but with eye contact and childlike playfulness, it soon turns into real and contagious laughter.

The reason we call it Laughter Yoga is because it combines laughter exercises with yoga breathing. This brings more oxygen to the body and the brain which makes one feel more energetic and healthy.

The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter if done with willingness. One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits.

It was started by a medical doctor, Dr. Madan Kataria from India with just five people from a Mumbai Park in 1995. It is fast sweeping the world and today there are thousands of laughter clubs in more than 65 countries.

Why Laughter Yoga?

In order to get the scientifically proven health benefits of laughter, we need to laugh continuously for at least for 10 to 15 minutes. Since in Laughter Yoga we do laughter as an exercise, we can prolong our laughter as long as we want. On the other hand, natural laughter comes for just a few seconds here and there and is not enough to bring about physiological and biochemical changes in our body.

 

To reap the health benefits of laughter, laughter has to be loud and deep coming  from the diaphragm. It should be a belly laugh. It might not be socially acceptable to laugh loudly, but Laughter Yoga clubs provide a safe environment where one can laugh loudly and heartily without any social implication. 

 

Natural laughter that courses through our life depends upon many reasons and conditions, but there are not many reasons which make us laugh. That means we are leaving laughter to chance, it may happen it may not. In contrast, in Laughter Yoga club we are not leaving laughter to chance, but doing it out of commitment. This is a guaranteed way of getting the health benefits of laughter.

What are the benefits of Laughter Yoga? 

Scientific studies have proven that Laughter Yoga increases the net supply of oxygen to our body cells giving a sense of well-being. According to Dr. Otto Warburg a Noble Laureate, his findings about the importance of oxygen confirms that the reason we fall sick frequently is because there is a lack of oxygen in the body cells. Laughter exercises and Yoga breathing help to attain good health by increasing the supply of oxygen. It also helps to release special hormones from all brain cells called endorphins also known as feel good hormones.

So what happens in a Laughter Yoga class? 

The best answer to this question is simply come and see for yourself. Laughter Clubs are fully independent, not-for-profit, non-political, non-religious and non competitive community-based associations of diverse people where all are welcome regardless of gender, age, physical abilities, social or economic backgrounds.
