People are always curious (and safe to say some are a little nervous) as to what a Laughter Yoga session is all about!
What is it?
A brilliant group exercise where everyone ends up laughing, giving you that feel good factor, at the same time as reducing stress levels and taking your mind off anything that may be worrying you.
Don’t be put off by the word ‘yoga’ if you think that yoga is not for you. The class is a combination of breathing and laughter exercises sending lots of oxygen to your brain and throughout your body releasing endorphins which are the body’s natural painkillers, lowering cortisol levels leaving you feeling alive and happy. It is great fun at the same time as bringing great benefits to your emotional and physical wellbeing. All this is happening as you have a good old belly laugh.
Who is it for?
Mostly everyone. There are some people who may not be able to take part for medical reasons but a questionnaire beforehand will clarify this. Otherwise, it doesn’t matter what your mobility, you can join in whether that is standing, jumping, dancing or seated in a chair, you will still reap the benefits.
What are the benefits?
It is a great team building activity, once initial inhibitions are unleashed, it is a great leveller and for breaking down barriers.
Laughter yoga workshops are incredible for improving and elevating the mental health and wellbeing of your employees. By the end of a session your employees feel more motivated, focused, alert, creative and connected as a team.
What we need from you
All we need is a space large enough for a group of people to stand and move around as they would in an exercise or dance class, or if the weather is kind, it is a great activity to do outdoors.
