The working “environement”  has become very serious and stressful. People think that serious people are more responsible and productive, but that’s not true, often the most productive people are those who take their jobs seriously, but who know how to take themselves lightly.

LAUGHTER YOGA is a Tool for Personal Development and Team building for an efficient and productive environment

Experiences and scientific research show us that laughter can help to resolve workplace stress and many related issues, but until recently there was no reliable and effective system to deliver laughter at work. Humor was the only tool available, but it is not reliable and seldom leads to continuous hearty laughter.

LAUGHTER YOGA is a breakthrough laughter delivery system that enables a person to laugh continuously for 15 to 20 minutes with short breaks of yogic breathing to bring about powerful physiological changes.
