Seven Compelling Reasons to Bring Laughter Yoga to Your Business

1. Quickest Way to Reduce Stress
2. Healthy Exercise for Busy People
3. Peak Performance
4. Team Building
5. Motivation and Communication
6. Innovation and Creativity
7. Increases Attention Span in HR Trainings


 Quickest way to Reduce Stress: The benefits of laughter yoga can be felt from the very first           session. It’s an exercise program which reduces physical, mental and emotional stress                     simultaneously and brings emotional balance. 

 Healthy Exercise for Busy People: Laughter Yoga works like an aerobic exercise. Dr. William       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, increasing blood circulation, oxygen 
supply and removes waste products.

Peak Performance: At any given time, performance depends upon mood and 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: ‘People who laugh together work well together.’ Laughter Yoga is a powerful
 tool that connects people easily. It assists with developing a positive mental attitude, hope and 
optimism as well as increases communication skills to help in team building.

Motivation And Communication: For people working in front office, sales, marketing and basically all areas of business, Laughter Yoga helps to bring a smile on their face and generate good feelings.This enhances their communication and motivational skills thus increasing the 
client base and customer satisfaction as well as a more cohesive work environment.

Innovation And Creativity: The childlike playfulness in Laughter Yoga stimulates right brain activity, which is the seat of creativity. This helps generate new ideas and new insights for 
creative innovation as well as workplace issues and problems.

Increases Attention Span in HR Trainings: The human brain cannot concentrate for more 
than 90 minutes. After that the attention span decreases. A short 5-10 minute Laughter Yoga session can provide a great energy boost during long HR training sessions and conferences. 
It helps to increase the attention span, enhance learning skills, concentration powers 
and potential.

 How Laughter Yoga Works

With prolonged intentional laughter one can exhale more carbon dioxide which oxygenates each and every cell of the body and brain. This improves efficiency, mental focus and concentration.

This innovative concept has been widely accepted all over the world and has been written about in prestigious publications like TIME Magazine, The New Yorker, National Geographic, Wall Street Journal, Daily Telegraph and many others.



Testimonials


   Laughter Yoga was the perfect team building activity for our team at General Electric Aviation. On two separate occasions, Judi taught a group
 of 15 people the many health benefits of laughter and then led us through
 a series of laughter 'exercises'. We laughed for the entire session. After 
Judi's visit, the team raved about the uniqueness of the activity and of the positive energy they felt from laughing. The feedback was so positive from
 the first session; I decided to invite Judi back for our Health Fair. 

Judi's passion and enthusiasm about her work gave us our burst of energy 
for our work. Her passion translated to an energetic delivery and great engagement with the participants. In both our sessions at GE, there were 
a handful of persons who were reluctant to start off, but Judi’s energy 
quickly reeled them in.  

I would highly recommend Judi for your next company team builder. It will
 be a great experience for your team and you won't stop talking or
 laughing about it! 

Joe Guth, GE Aviation




 Thank you so much, Judi. This was one of the best programs we've
 offered for our residents. I really appreciate your adaptability to meet our
 needs. I look forward to working with you in the future. 

Sincerely, Lori Shutrump
Mt. Pleasant Retirement Village




 The overall feeling from the group afterward was ‘what a blast’. Most 
people said they would have never considered laughing as a way of 
exercising. I am certain we may do it again in the future.

 Laughing Yoga has been a wonderful part of our Hamilton County DDS “Women’s Health” program for the past 3 years. The visual cues provided 
make it not only doable but enjoyable for everyone. It’s exercise hidden in laughter and playful movement. Laughing Yoga is one of the few exercises 
that our individuals can enjoy as a group. It does not have strict rules about
 the correct or incorrect way to move. It accepts everyone’s abilities.
