The Laughter Instigators are the ones who show you how to harness the Power of Laughter and use it in a variety of ways to enhance your private and business life. Laughter Instigators use the principles of Laughter Yoga which is a unique exercise routine combining unconditional laughter with yogic breathing. Anyone can laugh for no reason without relying on humour, jokes or comedy
Laughter is initially simulated as a physical exercise in a group and then using eye contact and childlike playfulness the laughter soon becomes real and contagious.
The reason it is called Laughter Yoga is because it combines laughter exercises with deep stretching and breathing. This brings more oxygen to the brain and body which makes one feel more energetic and healthy.
The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on the scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between real and fake laughter. A person gets the same physiological and psychological effects from both.
In order to get the scientifically-proven health benefits of laughter we need to laugh continuously, with breathing breaks, for between 10 and 15 minutes. Since in Laughter Yoga we do laughter as an exercise we can prolong the laughter as long as we want. On the other hand natural laughter comes for just a few seconds here and there and is not enough to bring about physiological and biochemical changes in the body.
To reap the health benefits of laughter, laughter has to be loud and deep coming from the diaphragm. It might not be socially acceptable to laugh loudly, but Laughter as an Exercise provides the environment in which to really laugh loudly and heartily.
Natural laughter that courses through our lives depends upon many reasons and conditions, but there are times in our lives when we find it difficult to find a reason to laugh. This means that we are leaving laughter to chance, it may happen it may not. In contrast as Laughter Instigators we are not leaving laughter to chance but doing it out of commitment. This is the guaranteed way of getting the health benefits of laughter.
