Laughter programs

We’ve all heard the saying that ‘laughter is the best medicine’. Laughter for wellbeing is a body-mind practice – a holistic humour and non-humour-based skillset and practice that doesn’t leave feeling upbeat or enlivened to chance.

How does Laughter Contribute to wellbeing?

Laughter for wellbeing works on the premise that motion creates emotion. Intentional laughter is no exceptionOur 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

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.

Laughter for Wellness

Laughter for Wellness programs expand on the fundamentals of Laughter Yoga, providing a model to practise positive uplifting behaviours and create a laughter mindset.

The more you practise these positive, uplifting behaviours, the more this feeling begins to flow into your daily life. Workshops incorporate varied techniques that amplify positivity and joy in body, mind and spirit. 

sessions include:

Finding Humour

Research has shown that accessing humour is a powerful way to reduce stress and build positive emotion. The more we draw on this resource, the more we reduce the harmful impact of stress hormones, such as cortisol. 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.

There are many ways to apply humour in your own life and my workshops show you how.
