Are you having a laugh?

Today I received a very interesting email at my facebook inbox that I want to share.

It's about the 1rst Laughter Yoga session in Athens, coming this Saturday, 19 September. Αctually the already established laughter club, since 2008, in Aegina island is invited in Athens by drosostalida for an unforgettable afternoon.

As it is stated in "Laughter Yoga combines unconditional laughter with yogic breathing (Pranayama). Anyone can laugh for no reason, without relying on humor, jokes or comedy. Laughter is simulated as a body exercise in a group but with eye contact and childlike playfulness, it soon turns into real and contagious laughter. The concept of laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits."

Relieving stress, overcoming grief, helping insomnia situations, boosting the immune system and alleviating anxiety and fear are just some of laughter yoga benefits.

It doesn't matter what's your age, sex or social status. It doesn't matter what's your sense of humor or even if you laugh easily or not. It's just incredible that anyone can participate; anyone can share and spread a laugh.

It's all about laughing, it's all about life!
