What is laughter yoga?


Laughter yoga is a laughing technique that requires us to laugh for absolutely no reason. No jokes and no yoga poses. The best way to describe this is if you think of a laughing workshop where you are encouraged to spark laughter from within.

All you need is a willingness to let loose, have fun, and the group effect will work it's magic to get you laughing till you can't stop! How fantastic does that sound?
