Finding Laughter: Laughter Yoga (Day 13)

Finding Laughter 31 Days of writing

Have you head about laughter yoga? Do you engage in laughter yoga? My answer to both is “No.”

Since my solo attempts at laughing haven’t been that successful, I decided to call the number on the website for Laugh Yo! Sacramento’s Laughter Yoga Class. They have evening class times; however, you have to call for locations and times.

Their website has A Few Benefits of Laughter:

  • Increases Energy, Creativity, Problem Solving and Mindfulness
  • Decreases Belly Fat, Depression, Stress, Fear and Anxiety
  • Improves Mood, Coping Skills, Digestion and Immune System
  • Plus You Get A Cardio Workout and Feel Younger

I left a message and am waiting to hear back. I hope to be able to attend at least one class to see if it does indeed UP my laughter. Although participating just to decrease belly fat and increase energy are two other GREAT reasons to attend.

Your Turn . . . What’s your opinion about laughter Yoga?  . . . . Know anyone who practices this? . . . Is it even a real thing? . . . Share a resource (movie, book, anecdote, or joke). 

I am joining 100’s of others at #write31days to write every day in October 2015 on a single topic. My topic is 31 Days of Finding Laughter. I will spend time each day studying laughter to see if I can improve my laughter quotient.

Go here for the landing page which has all the posts in one spot.

Read, learn, and discover with me what this world of laughter is all about and is it all that it’s cracked up to be. And be sure to leave a comment. Talking together will make for a richer, interactive experience for all of us.

    Well I have never heard of Laughter Yoga but I love to laugh and I believe the benefits reach beyond what we can see or know in our heads only! We can feel the benefits, almost immediately and I make it a daily practice to laugh out loud several times a day!

      Karrilee, Reading your reply made me laugh out loud! That is an awesome practice. Is there something in particular that you do to get yourself to laugh?

    Okay… I had to Google this! And honestly, I’m not sure I could handle it.🙂 I’m fairly reserved, and I really enjoy yoga as an internalized practice. BUT– to each her own! And apparently there’s some definite demand for laughter yoga… who knew??

      I am not sure what my reaction will be, Sarah. I am willing to try this once. This sounded less “scary” that joining a Skype laughing class, But so far I haven’t heard back, so maybe I will be off the hook.🙂
