Laughter Yoga is a global movement for health, joy and world peace. Laughter Yoga isn't about the usual yoga positions and exercises. There are no downward dogs here, just basic stretches performed while sitting in chairs or standing. Laughter Yoga isn't about chuckling, either. It's about exploding with the kind of laughs you feel in your belly and in your soul.
Research from the University of Maryland, School of Medicine has found that hearty laughter reduces one's risk for cardiovascular disease, while studies from Loma Linda University find that it reduces stress and blood pressure and increases endorphins.
So, Laughter Yoga is all about the endorphins, the feel-good stuff. While putting your effort into your laughter, you don't get into your thoughts anymore. The more physical the laugh, the more your body commits to being in the moment and feeling good.*
