Looking For A Good Laugh? This Wellness Yoga Will Make You Roll

Laughter Yoga

We can’t argue that ‘laughter is the best medicine’.

According to studies, laughter decreases stress hormones and increases the body’s immune cells and antibody agents.

Laughter also triggers the release of natural feel-good chemicals or endorphins in the body. Aside from alleviating mood and pain, laughing can also help burn calories and improve cardiac health.

This is the foundation behind Hasya Yoga or popularly known as laughter yoga.

The routine – developed by Indian physician Madan Kataria – sees participants engage in voluntary laughter aided by jokes, eye contact and playful gestures. And while forced at first, the session eventually becomes a natural laugh fest for everyone – and that’s where real fun begins.

Laughter yoga has grown in popularity in recent years, with many countries embracing the practice along with its health benefits.

It’s no wonder too that laughter yoga is being done in companies, old age homes, schools, hospitals, prisons, fitness centres and community centres.

And Abu Dhabi residents curious to experience laughter yoga can do so by signing up to a session hosted by Change Works on 30th and 31st August, from 10am to 5pm.

Participants can expect a full day of laughter complete with actions – and with this we mean crazy, exaggerated movements for good fun.

The session usually starts with warm-up techniques including stretching before proceeding with actions and playful visuals to elicit guffaws of chuckles.
