Virtual Laughter Yoga
Laughter yoga is a quick and easy way to get a mood boost.
Laughter Yoga is a fun way to boost creativity at work! Laughter yoga is forcing oneself to laugh, and the silly, forced laughter becomes real laughter that gets blood flowing and endorphins released into the body. This cardio workout strengthens the immune system. 10 minutes of hearty laughter is equal to 30 minutes on the rowing machine.
It increases blood circulation and relaxes the muscles. It’s also an antidote for depression. It reduces blood pressure as well as symptoms of allergies, asthma, arthritis, and helps in chronic illnesses.
Virtual Laughter Yoga is primarily delivered through zoom, but we can use any platform of your choice.
Laughter Yoga is:
• A quick and easy way to get a mood boost.
• It helps with emotional development as it connects people.
• Boosts confidence and communication skills and even helps to increase
• attention spans.
• It helps make a person calm so he or she is better able to deal with
• challenging situations.
No experience with yoga (or even laughing) necessary!
How can we laugh in these trying times? With a virtual event like Laughter Yoga, we combine team building with a yoga twist. Techniques will focus on a mind-body mix of breathing, laughing, and eye contact to create interdependence amongst your team. This fun, light cardio workout increases blood circulation, kicks depression, reduces blood pressure, alleviates stress, releases endorphins, increases oxygen flow, and, brings teams together. The important thing to note about laughter yoga is that the “yoga” part comes from breathing and not from poses.
Every laughter yoga session has the following elements:
• Stretching • Clapping
• Laughing • Breathing • Relaxation • Meditation
