Laughter Wellness Benefits
Laughter Wellness is simple yet profound. It is a complete series of techniques that unlock the many healing benefits of laughter and promote physical wellness and overall wellbeing. It’s science-based, uplifting, energizing and FUN! Anyone can do it; you don’t need to be flexible or funny.
It is based on laughter yoga; however, it does not involve yoga poses. It’s the yoga of breath and moving energy. The “yoga” aspect of it is the mindfulness and deep breathing exercises we incorporate. Laughter Wellness promotes healing and having fun through simple movements, lots of laughter and breathwork. It’s very simple, so it is available to everybody. You can even participate in a chair.
