Laughter Yoga

What’s so funny?

I walked to my first Laughter Yoga class wondering what you are probably wondering right now – what in the world is laughter yoga? Will there be a stand-up comedian cracking jokes while I am in downward dog?

I walked to my first Laughter Yoga class wondering what you are probably wondering right now – what in the world is laughter yoga? Will there be a stand-up comedian cracking jokes while I am in downward dog?

There was no comedian, and no downward dog, but there was plenty of laughter.

We started with a traditional cross-legged circle and introduced ourselves by our laughs, then took turns laughing like the other. While it sounds strange to laugh without thinking something is funny, we also laugh with joy, and this was the laughter of the second kind. Something took over, and what started as a pretend laugh became a real laugh as we passed our laughter around the circle.

According to Laughter Yoga instructor Vanessa Rhae Nordhues, whenever we laugh, our brains release positive hormones that induces yet more laughter and fills us with peace.

There were plenty of movement activities. We handed an imaginary phone off to one another and found hilarious laughter in what the imaginary person on the end had to say. We pretended to be in traffic and laughed hilariously at our minor collisions. We found laughter in the ridiculousness of life and let the stress melt away.

But I won’t give it all away. Vanessa has agreed to hold a free Laughter Yoga class at ICoHS.
