TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE LAUGHTER GYM
The Laughter Gym involves stretching, laughter warm ups, breathing, movement and interaction with others in the room, whilst using non-postural Laughter Yoga -- specific simulated and stimulated laughter exercises that release stress and barriers, induce a state of relaxation, spontaneous laughter and a low-physical but dynamic experience for the whole body system. The group are then integrated with a laughter meditation and relaxation.
The Laughter Gym works without the need for the participant to be entertained or to be put on the spot (!) – it is an interactive group experience. The exercises are non-strenuous and fun and may be learnt and used for daily, office life or developed for use in daily group sessions. The Laughter Gym is an effective way to bond teams; from the apprentice to the CEO... where languages, cultures, age or health issues are no longer barriers.
And finally... at a Laughter Gym Session you can laugh your way to health and fitness. The laughter exercises are quirky, fun and a great stress-buster, stimulating the respiratory, circulatory, digestive and muscular systems. One of the most prominent laughter researchers, Dr William Fry, suggests that 100 laughs a day are equivalent to 10 minutes of rowing or jogging.
"Laughter... it's on everyone's lips!"
