For me and my colleagues it was a welcome relief from the traditional corporate culture
(PRWEB UK) 30 January 2014
Laughter Yoga is a revolutionary idea. A complete wellbeing workout, that can help resolve workplace stress and create a happy, energetic and motivated workforce.
Developed almost 20 years ago, Laughter Yoga is now taking off in workplaces around the UK as a proven technique to reduce stress in the workplace. BBC Scotland recently tried it out, Google and the Financial Times are both advocates.
Most recently, On Site Massage Co recently provided a workshop for UK TV. A great team building tool, group laughter can create a happy and motivated workforce and encourages positive thinking and creativity.
Yogic Laughter instructor Nihat explains: “I used to work for a major financial corporation where I started running laughter yoga sessions on lunchtimes. For me and my colleagues it was a welcome relief from the traditional corporate culture.”
Breathing exercises are used to prepare the lungs for laughter, followed by a series of ‘laughter exercises’ that lead to prolonged and hearty unconditional laughter. Nisha, another Laughter Yoga instructor working for On Site Massage Co added: “when I first introduced laughter yoga, it was as part of a wellbeing workshop. Working with diverse groups of people, from accountants through to teachers, I found people opened up and it was a great bonding exercise.”
There are personal benefits too, by releasing endorphins we feel happier and more relaxed. Laughter puts us in a good mood, which can help us have a positive outlook on life. Nisha took a first date to a Laughter Yoga session: “It was a really great way to open up and let our inhibitions go.” That date is now her fiancé!
With proven health and lifestyle benefits, Laughter Yoga is a cost effective, fun and easy to implement wellbeing tool that reduces physical, mental and emotional stress.
