Laughter Yoga is a unique form of exercise that allows anybody to laugh heartily, alone or in a group, for an extended period of time, for no reason. It follows a body-mind approach to laughter, not mind-body. You do not have to be happy or have a sense of humor to laugh.

The link between laughter and yoga is the breath. Laughter Yoga can rightly be called a form of pranayahahama. Where traditional yoga is a serious and solitary practice (it’s you and your mat) that can be physically demanding, Laughter Yoga on the contrary is easy, fun, and aimed at having a direct experience of joy in a group setting, laughing with others and never at them.

Laughter releases stress, strengthens your immune system, helps you sleep better, reduces pain and overall boosts happy chemistry. It also diffuses fear and tension and connects you with others.
