How to Practice Laughter Yoga

Laughter Yoga is an activity or current that is becoming more and more fashionable all over the world due to its originality and its fun sense of humor.

Laughter yoga is a new sport, recently created and that has been created with the aim of putting a smile on your face in a society where, due to the crisis and the problems that exist, it seems that we have forgotten to smile.

This type of yoga exists because there are people who believe that laughter has many beneficial properties for human beings, such as having better health, releasing endorphins of happiness and releasing the emotions that you have stored inside you.

Whether these statements are true or not, it is true that it would be good for all of us to disconnect from time to time and go back to being for a few moments that little boy who laughed at everything and whose only concern was playing football and worrying about how girls like it.

I really believe that this type of therapy is necessary, since in a world full of bills to pay, evictions and murders, it is good to remember why the human being is extraordinary.

The fact is that more and more people practice laughter yoga, a list of people who get bigger and bigger every day. There are already more than 4,000 centers around the world and their number continues to grow every year.

What do you need to practice Laughter Yoga?

  • You want to have fun and have a good time.
  • Put shame aside.

Instructions for practicing Laughter Yoga

  1. On your own:
    Practicing Laughter Yoga on your own is not as easy or fun as doing it in a group, however, it can be a way to get in touch with this activity. Normally it usually starts with a kind of warm-up that consists of starting to applaud yourself and move your hands from one side to the other, and then starts laughing on your own without stopping. Once you have done this, you should do some exercises such as the lion laugh, which consists of making a playful face with your hands and tongue while you laugh. It also includes breathing exercises to eliminate stress, since this is still yoga. If you want to learn more Laughter Yoga exercises, the internet has a lot of information about them, so don’t hesitate to search.
  2. Go to a Laughter Yoga center:
    Although there are still not too many centers of this type in Spain, in large cities like Madrid you can easily find Laughter Yoga centers. You have to go to Google and use keywords like “laughter therapy”, “laughter yoga” or “laughter yoga group” to be able to find a place where this fun activity takes place. You must put aside the shame to go, because before long you will be like a small child laughing in front of other people and doing exercises and giggling that if you see someone doing them outside of laughter yoga, you would think they are stupid. Give it a try and do the exercises that the monitors tell you; you will see how it is one of the best experiences of your life.
  3. Have fun:
    Laughter yoga is useless if one thing doesn’t happen, which is that you come to the laughter yoga event with positivity. If you are going to laugh but deep down you are not having a good time, the therapy is not going to work correctly and it is not going to bring you the benefits that laughter yoga always brings. The trick is to go relaxed, without getting nervous, without demanding anything of yourself and bearing in mind that you are a child again. During the time that you are doing laughter yoga, forget about the bills, that promotion that you do not get or the children, there is only you and your inner self, your little inner self that wants to come out of the shell and be happy again. Let your inner self dominate you and you will be happy again practicing laughter yoga.
