Laughter and Yoga

Laughter is the best medicine. It reduces stress, transports you to the present moment, and helps strengthen your abs. Laughter is inherent in the daily experience of children and seems to lessen with age and responsibility.

This is a picture of me as a young girl laughing away as I often did when being entertained by others.

I love the benefits that I receive when I enjoy a good belly laugh and I love the way I feel mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually during and after I practice yoga.

When you combine the two, what happens is nothing short of majestic.  Laughter + Yoga= BIG F-U-N.

Here are my favorite reasons to practice laughter yoga and yoga:

  • it boosts your “feel good” endorphins
  • it’s free
  • it feels good
  • it increases your vibration, which equates to better health
  • it relieves stress, tension, anxiety, and reduces blood pressure

I want to invite you into my Nurse Healing Lounge for a hilarious dose of laughter yoga. It will only take about twelve minutes and the payoff is huge, if you participate.

Go ahead, go all in, what have you got to lose?

In this episode, Giggle with us here Sarah Routman, of Serious Giggles guides us through some simple, yet profound laughter yoga exercises to help my friend Liz and me get our giggle on.

Please enjoy, share, and repeat.

Please share your favorite part about this exercise. I personally love the smile “push ups”!
