This experiential (and often life-transforming) workshop is ideal for personal development and anyone interested in running a laughter yoga group (certification upon completion of workshop). The teachers teach a combination of positive psychology and how to access unconditional laughter to give participants valuable tools for everyday life.

Laughter is our body’s natural antidote to stress. Laughter “yoga” is a deceptively simple yet very powerful form of exercise, combining laughter exercises with yogic breathing (quite different from traditional yoga with postures). Ultimately, Laughter “yoga” is about the cultivation of joyfulness. It teaches you to make happiness a choice and not a consequence.

Laughter is a universal language that transcends all barriers; age, gender, language, hierarchy, physical abilities, race, religion, political beliefs. Anyone can laugh without relying on humour, jokes or comedy.

Laughter has profound effects on our mental and physical state of being.
• the release of endorphins and serotonin;
• decreases levels of stress hormones;
• beats depression and anxiety;
• boosts the immune system;
• increases circulation;
• floods the body with oxygen;
• increases Killer T Cell production, which helps fight cancer;
• is an aerobic exercise; and
• improves communication and creativity.
