Laughter yoga (Hasyayoga) is a modern exercise involving prolonged voluntary laughter. This type of yoga is based on the belief that voluntary laughter provides similar physiological and psychological benefits as spontaneous laughter. It is usually done in groups, with eye contact, clapping and much playfulness between participants. Intentional laughter often turns into real and contagious laughter. It is helpful in that it brings oxygen to our body and brain- lifting our spirits and carrying into our work, school and social lives.

The yoga practice will spread the healing process, can reduce anxiety and stress as endorphins are released while laughing, fostering a positive attitude and the feeling of happiness. Laughter Yoga workouts are also good for heart, diaphragm, abdominal, respiratory, and facial muscles. After laughing, the positive effects can last up to 45 minutes, benefiting the cardiovascular system as well as reducing blood pressure.

Lead by Dr. Vinodray Shah, Certified Laughter Yoga Instructor.
