Laughter Yoga

Happiness shows!

Irish Times: “The idea is that the body cannot distinguish between fake and real laughter; they both offer physiological and psychological benefits.” There’s even a Laughter Yoga studio in Ireland…

Laughter is good for you! According to Laughter Yoga Ireland “Laughter Yoga offers: an alternative aerobic exercise (according to Dr. William Fry of Stanford University one minute of laughter is equal to 10 minutes on the rowing machine); a supplementary and preventative therapy against other ailments; natural pain relief through increasing the level of endorphins in the body; an aide in the prevention of depression, anxiety and psychosomatic disorders; improved breathing capacity (laughter yoga is beneficial for asthmatics, athletes, actors and singers); strengthened immune system; increased confidence and positive outlook.” LOL!
