Benefits of Corporate Laughter Yoga

Workplace Stress
While there are many tools available for stress management, Laughter Yoga is a unique system that helps to reduce physical, mental and emotional stress at the same time.  It works simultaneously both on the body and mind.  Research  conducted in Bangalore, India found a significant reduction in stress levels, as shown by reduction in cortisol levels in saliva.

Improved Efficiency
Performance depends upon mood.  Laughter Yoga has the power to change the mood state within minutes by releasing neuro-peptides from the brain cells called endorphins.  Science tells us that the brain needs 25% more oxygen than other body organs.  Laughter Yoga increases the net supply of oxygen, which helps in optimal performance and boosts energy levels.

Team Building
Laughter Yoga has the ability to change the work environment drastically by making people happy and cheerful, bringing positive mental attitude, hope and optimism into the workforce.  Laughter Yoga increases communication skills to help with team building.

Leadership skills
Laughter Yoga helps to connect with people in the workplace and bring an emotional balance.  This is greatly helpful in achieving targets and accomplishing goals.

Innovation and Creativity
The essence of Laughter Yoga is to cultivate childlike playfulness, which helps to stimulate the right brain activity, the seat of creativity.  This helps to generate new ideas and insights about workplace issues and problems.

Increasing Attention Span in HR Training
Even a 5 to 10 minute Laughter Yoga session can provide a great energy boost during long HR training sessions and conferences.  Laughter Yoga helps to increase the attention span, enhance learning skills, concentration powers and potential.

Motivation and communication
For people working in the front office and sales and marketing, Laughter Yoga helps to bring a smile on their face and generate good feelings within the body.  This enhances their communication and motivational skills, thereby increasing their client base and customer satisfaction.

Ideal Exercise for Busy People
Business people are very busy and some have no time to exercise.  Dr Williams Fry of Stanford University proved that 10 minutes of hearty laughter is equal to 30 minutes on a rowing machine.  This helps to stimulate heart rate, increase blood circulation, supply oxygen and remove waste products.

What happens in a Laughter Yoga session?

Laughter Yoga is a process that enables laughter, even when you don’t feel like it.  It is an aerobic exercise program that anyone can do, anywhere, at any time.  It is a combination of fun laughter exercises, deep breathing from Yoga, rythmatic clapping.  A laughter yoga session usually ends with a mediation and guided relaxation.  Laughter Yoga is not about comedy or humor.

Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between simulated laughter and real laughter.  You get the same physiological and psychological benefits.


Many businesses have made a point of having a regular laughter session at the workplace, in a bid to reduce workplace worries, stress, and create a more energetic work environment.   Laughter Yoga is an inexpensive method to create a positive environment.
