Laughter in Business

Laughter Yoga Stress-Buster & Team Building Sessions

Duration: 30 to 40 minutes and Full 1 hour session

Laughter Yoga is a unique concept where anyone can laugh for no reason at all, there is no need for jokes or comedy. We practice unconditional laughter. Studies show that the mind & body do not differentiate between real or fake laughter – the benefits are the same. It is part of Mind-Body science. We teach the mind and body to laugh. During a Laughter session we practice laughter as an exercise, followed by laughter meditation (laughter free flow) & finish with a guided relaxation.

“we do not laugh because we are happy, we are happy because we laugh”

Participants will become equipped to incorporate more laughter into their personal and work lives. We will experientially learn the benefits of laughter which include:

• reduced stress
• strengthened immune system
• elevated mood
• less pain (emotional and physical)
• increased connectedness

A happier workplace fosters improved productivity, teamwork, and resilience.

This is a breakthrough laughter delivery system that can enable a person to laugh continuously for 15 to 20 minutes, releasing endorphins, serotonin & dopamine; effectively releasing a “cocktail of happy hormones” into the brain to counter stress hormones of adrenaline & cortisol.

Essentially, a laughter session is a single exercise routine, which reduces physical, mental and emotional stress simultaneously and brings emotional balance.

Some of the personal long lasting effects of a laughter intervention are self-efficacy, team development and increased empathy. A regular practice of Laughter is life-changing: resulting in an increased sense of well being, leading to healthy, motivated and inspired staff.

We teach proven and sustainable lifestyle tools and strategies that release physical and emotional tensions and create positive behavioral change in people, workplaces and communities.

Happy people = Healthy organizations
