What is Body Mind Laughter and Mindfulness Therapy?

 

Body Mind Laughter is an interactive health and wellbeing programme that embraces laughter, play, yogic deep breathing and mindfulness to provide fun yet empowering and meaningful experience for its participants. It aims to revive our sense of wellbeing and asks us to embrace changes and challenges in hand as an opportunity to explore our potentials. The programme is suitable for many people, including those with compromised mobility.

Our interactive workshops are designed to help nurture our inner child and appreciate how each sound of laughter announces experience of fun to our brain - and our body loves it!  This signifies the importance of play, not only as a crucial part of our child development, but throughout our life.  As a tool, play helps to engage our mind, spark our imagination and challenge our ability to think and view things/situation(s) from a different perspective.  Science also promotes the idea of how our thoughts and the state of our mind can have powerful influence on our health and wellbeing.

 

The fun filled exercises aim to help stretch our mental muscle, shake up our auto-pilot mode and pay attention to and appreciate our very now moments; nudging us also to recognise that it’s ok to make mistake(s) when we’re learning, since our learning/taking in new information may depend on our state of mind at the time.  The idea is to let the laughter bubble up from within and help boost endorphins, elevate mood, enhance confidence, combat stress, tackle inhibition and build on our resilience.  It hopes to recharge our mechanism for positive outlook to life while enjoying participating within teams and the world around us with the sense of togetherness.   While mindfulness helps raise awareness of our thoughts, emotions, breathing, bodily sensations as well as our surroundings.  It helps in facilitating reflection, clear thinking, open heartedness and curiosity and promotes communication and interpersonal skills; helpful in bridging and bonding relationships.   

All that is required from you is your natural ability to laugh and breathe at your own pace with comfortable light clothing that is not restrictive around the belly area.  The concept of Laughter Yoga was created by Dr. Kataria, an Indian physician who wanted to prescribe laughter and play to everyone who needed it.

It should also be noted that Laughter Yoga is like any other aerobic exercise and all conditions apply as that of aerobic activity.
