Here is a recently published article on how Laughter Yoga has proved to be a great exercise for a healthy heart. In his report Jagat Singh Bisht, Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher, Indore says “Stress is the root cause of many heart problems. Laughing gives oxygen to the body and is a powerful cardio workout. Ten minutes of hearty laughter is equal to 30 minutes on treadmill.”

Laughter Yoga is done under proper guidance and can help a person in maintaining the blood pressure level. It also helps in proper circulation of blood and its dilation.

Sharing an experience Bisht says, “About nine years ago, my wife Radhika used to pop BP pills every day. She started Laughter Yoga and according to doctors’ advice she gradually stopped taking the pills and we used to monitor her BP at regular intervals. Now, she is completely off the pills and Laughter Yoga has helped her a lot.”

Daily dose of laughter can help in opening the arteries and helps those who have cholesterol problem. It also manages the sugar level in the body. But there is a word of caution here from the trainer. “Laughter Yoga is not a complete cure but is a preventive method. Those with high BP and complicated heart problems are advised not to go for Laughter Yoga. However, a person can surely remain fit if Laughter Yoga is practiced regularly.”
