Program Description


"Laughter Yoga combines Unconditional Laughter with Yogic Breathing (Pranayama). Anyone can Laugh for No Reason, without relying on humor, jokes or comedy. Laughter is simulated as a body exercise in a group; with eye contact and childlike playfulness, it soon turns into real and contagious laughter. The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits."

In addition to senior laughter yoga classes, "Chicago Laughter Yoga" also holds laughter yoga sessions for the terminally ill, for those suffering from depression and as a stress relief exercise for hospital employees.
