Laughter Yoga in reducing cortisol levels. 
Laughter Yoga is not just about stress-busting, it can also help teams to relax and it can even boost workplace wellness. Mental health in the workplace is just as important as physical health, and Laughter Yoga is a single activity which offers emotional, physical and mental relief through activities that reduce anxiety, stress, and even depression. 
I made a conscious effort to bring more joy and laughter into my life and now I teach individuals and companies how to use Laughter Yoga for:
Workplace wellness
Personal Team-building,
Seniors how to improve mobility and stay mentally active even in care homes,
Youngsters to build emotional intelligence especially when bullying is rife,
Communities who need to reconnect,
Women to navigate menopause in the workplace,
Special needs, people who are frequently overlooked,
And anyone invested in healing, maintaining, and boosting mental health. 

What is Laughter Yoga?

Laughter Yoga is a unique concept where anyone can laugh for no reason without relying on humour, jokes or comedy.
Laughter Yoga is initiated as an exercise in a group and with eye contact, willingness and playfulness, it soon turns into real, contagious laughter.
It’s called Laughter Yoga as it combines laughter exercises with deep Yogic breathing.
Laughter Yoga is based on the scientific fact that the body and brain can’t differentiate between pretend and real laughter if done with willingness. We get the same physiological and psychological health benefits.
Laughter Yoga was started by a medical doctor from India,
Dr Madan Kataria, with just five people in a park in Mumbai in 1995.

Today there are more than 20 000 laughter clubs in over 120 countries.
