Laughter yoga – level 3

24-07-2014 15:00

Bad day at work? Well, how about a bit of laughter yoga?

Yeah, consultancy firm ‘Inspire 2 Aspire‘ run the classes, which boss Mahesh believes eases stress and increases productivity and creativity among staff.

“When they are doing laughter yoga with us, and we’ve incorporated all of development into it, and they just love it. They actually want to express appreciation and gratitude, but somehow in the work place they’re like oh I don’t think it looks that good. So, that builds very good relationships. Productivity goes up. Creativity goes up in the workplace.”

So why is this type of yoga so great? Well, apparently the body cannot differentiate between fake and genuine laughter.

According to experts, humour can boost the immune system and lower blood pressure, and laughing for around 15 minutes can burn around 40 calories.

Laughter Yoga International now claims over 600 clubs in 60 countries.

Difficult words: bit (little), aspire (to desire and word towards achieving something), incorporate (mix), appreciation (feeling good about something), gratitude (being thankful), differentiate (understand the difference), humour (something that is fun or funny).
