What is Laughter Yoga?

Laughter (Haysa) Yoga isn't like traditional Hatha Yoga. We don't do any yoga postures and laugh at the same time!

Laughter Yoga approaches laughter as gentle exercise, with no need to rely on humor. In a group, with a little playfulness, our laughter becomes spontaneous, contagious and mirthful.

You don't need to be in shape to practice Laughter Yoga. If you can laugh, no matter what your mobility, you'll be able to participate! Prolonged laughter brings serious health in many ways. It's still the best medicine.

"Hearty laughter is a good way to jog internally without having to go outdoors." -- Norman Cousins, Author, Anatomy of an Illness.

no happiness required

You don't need to feel good first, to be happy, or even to have a sense of humor to participate in a session. We don't use jokes or comedy. Laughter Yoga first improves your mood physiologically, and then you feel good emotionally. If you don't feel like laughing, that's a great time to give it a try.
