Seal College, for intellectually challenged children & young adults FundraiserAs I share laughter with people from all walks of life, all over our beautiful country and world, I am both humbled and encouraged by our common humanity. I find that once I’ve laughed with people I feel connected and safe, I am focused on what we have in common rather than our differences.

Skype Laughter ~ 8pm Monday to Thursday, from the comfort of your home

Laughter is the best medicine

Laughter Yoga is a unique concept where anyone can learn to laugh for no reason at all! We don’t need to rely on comedy or jokes. We learn unconditional laughter, connecting with our own innate joy. We practice laughter as an exercise accompanied with deep breathing, which leaves us feeling more energised and happy.

Laughter Yoga works on the scientific premise that the body does not know the difference between fake laughter and real laughter – so even when we pretend to laugh the benefits are the same. We can shift a mood within minutes. When we practice deep belly laughter for 10 to 15 minutes, endorphins are released, our stress levels reduce and the immune system increases.

Did you know we laugh to release anxiety and fear – the more stressed we are the more of a release the laughter is – laughter can be cathartic & is one of the most primal and powerful social contagions. It increases the oxygen and blood circulation, which can lead to creative thinking and regulate blood pressure.

It is the quickest holiday from our stressors

Laughter Yoga started by medical Dr Madan Kataria in 1995, and is now practiced in thousands of clubs in 100 countries around the World. Our mission Health, Joy & World Peace though Laughter

The doctors prescription is daily laughter of 10 – 15 minutes

Join Skype Laughter Facilitators, Roseanne Turner, Wendy Cooke & Kate Squire-Howe as they lead Skype Laughter Club South Africa.

Skype Laughter is a conference call where we laugh unconditionally. Remember, the concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. When done with willingness, one gets the same physiological and psychological benefits.

We focus on laughter as a form of exercise. You can laugh gently, hear others laughing and enJOY as the laughter soon becomes contagious.

There is no talking, only laughing & we keep it to just audio, no visual – so don’t worry if you are in your PJ’s.
