How does Laughter Contribute to wellbeing?
Laughter for wellbeing works on the premise that motion creates emotion. Intentional laughter is no exception. Our body doesn’t need to consult with our mind to feel and stimulate our body’s cocktail of wellbeing hormones. That’s the laughter effect.
Laughter Yoga combines deep slow diaphragmatic breathing, playful movement, gentle stretches with intentional laughter exercise. Laughter Yoga is an enlivening and inclusive activity suited to all abilities and stages of life, from schools to healthcare settings to the wider community and business world.
It doesn’t rely on humour or jokes to stimulate laughter making it the perfect choice for when life becomes stressful, and laughter is furthermost from mind.

Using humour appropriately and sensitively brings people together, positively impacting morale, whether in your household or at work.
When people share a laugh, a bridge of connection is built, and it also maximises creativity and learning. Drawing on this resource promotes levity and psychological resilience and there are many ways we can develop this sense.
