  • 3 Reasons to Practice Laughter Yoga

    Posted on Thu, 25 October 2012

    Sometimes people will object to trying Laughter Yoga. They say things like: I don’t want to “fake” my laughter, I want it to be real or I already laugh a lot. Whenever you hear such arguments to the contrary, be prepared with these 3 great reasons to practice Laughter Yoga as developed by Dr. Kataria.

    1. To get the scientifically proven benefits of laughter, one has to laugh longer. Laughter Yoga enables you to laugh for an extended period time. In everyday life, we laugh at funny things but usually, the laughter is only for a few seconds, here and there. In order to reap the health benefits, you must laugh at least 15-20 minutes with resting breaks in-between. Only then, will your body gain the physiologically and biological health benefits. In Laughter Yoga, we laugh as a form of exercise, therefore, you can laugh as long as you choose.

  • Laughter Yoga And NLP Connection

    Posted on Tue, 23 October 2012

    NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, a name that encompasses the three most influential components involved in producing human experience: neurology, language and programming. The neurological system regulates how our bodies function, language determines how we interact and communicate with other people and our programming determines the kinds of models of the world we create. The NLP describes the fundamental dynamics between mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) and how their interplay affects our body and behavior (programming).

    When NLP is combined with progressive conditioning, it can create a powerful means of creating change. Through progressive conditioning you can install a belief, attitude or new behavior at a much slower pace and then gradually increase the amount of exposure to that new belief, attitude or behavior. This allows the brain to adjust to the...Read More

Testimonials

I must admit I wasn't expecting this! The breathing was simple to do, but the journey was incredible. The build up of energy inside me seemed to flush out all doubt, all limits and all misconceptions of who I truly am. I can't begin to describe the joy and peace I feel now. I have never felt like this before, so I'm really glad I made the effort to come today. A huge thank-you and I would drag all my friends and family along next time.
