What is Laughter Yoga
Laughter Yoga is an innovative health promotion and disease prevention program that uses intentional laughter as a form of physical exercise to enhance health and well being. Practically anyone can laugh heartily and achieve the health benefits of laughter without relying on jokes, humor, or comedy. The concept is based on scientific knowledge that the body cannot distinguish between genuine and self initiated laughter- so whether you are laughing at something funny or you are having fun choosing to laugh, both generate physiological and psychological health benefits.
We hope you can join us for this fun and healthy program.
