Kaelo | September Webinar
Live Well | Learning & Preventing | #Smile
Your brain cannot discern the difference between real laughter and fake laughter – so if you breathe and make the sounds of laughter you will cause your brain to produce the neurochemicals that transpire because of real laughter.
Laughter yoga sessions may start with gentle warm-up techniques which include stretching, chanting, clapping, eye contact and body movement, to help break down inhibitions and encourage a sense of playfulness. Breathing exercises are used to prepare the lungs for laughter, followed by a series of ‘laughter exercises’ that combine the method of acting and visualization techniques with playfulness. Laughter exercises are interspersed with breathing exercises.
