Laughter Yoga developed in Mumbai has now been brought into the main stream.
Laughter Therapy exercises are designed to free you from stress and promote your well-being.
This morning at Royal Oaks World School we exploded with laughter.
Contrary to what many of us think, Laughter Therapy is not laughing rightaway from beginning to end. It is done in 3 phases.
1. Phase 1- The session starts with the clapping of hands in rhythm to activate accupuncture points, so that people are ready for further phases.
2. Phase 2 - Deep breathing exercises are recommended during this phase. It helps to lighten the mood and relax our lungs. These exercises help us to increase focus on our day to day activities.
3. Phase 3 - Laughing like a child without any reason is the main aim of this exercise. Different kinds of laughter in this phase include.
2) Silly Laughter
3) Mirror Laughter
4) Balloon Laughter
5) Bird Laughter
6) Gratitude Laughter
It was wonderful to hear the joyous sound of laughter accross the school as well as see the happy smiling faces of our teachers, pupils, and other staff in the school. "More than anything else, we want our children to be happy while they learn."
