Laughter Yoga (Hasyayoga)

Laughter yoga (Hasyayoga) is a practice involving prolonged voluntary laughter. Laughter yoga is based on the belief that voluntary laughter provides the same physiological and psychological benefits as spontaneous laughter. Laughter yoga is done in groups, with eye contact and playfulness between participants. Forced laughter soon turns into real and contagious laughter.

Laughter Yoga is a unique technique devised by Dr Madan Kataria, a doctor from India, whereby you can learn to “Laugh for no Reason”. You do not even need a sense of humour, no funny jokes or comedy programmes – just a willingness to laugh – and in the current climate everyone needs to laugh more. Laughter Yoga increases the amount of oxygen in your body whilst being playful helps you feel more healthy, energised and alive. This actually changes the physiology of your body so that you start to feel happier. Laughter Yoga is generally done in groups – although it can be practised alone.

Laughing with a group is generally a more fun activity. So feel free to join us!
