Laughter Yoga, simple yet powerful and profound is now being applied in different fields worldwide and is gaining immense popularity because of the many health benefits people experience.
“Why laugh? Because laughter reduces stress, lowers your blood pressure, boosts immunity, eases physical pain and promotes happiness,” says Laura Gentry, Laughter Yoga expert and pastor of Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Lansing. She presents Laughter Yoga programs for churches and other groups offering an in-depth look at biblical joy.
In a recently published article in WCF Courier.com Gentry says, “The physical act of laughing is one of the few actions involving the body, emotions and the soul. When we laugh, we give ourselves over to the immediacy of the present moment. Laughter Yoga and laughter meditation also have deep, meaningful and spiritual benefits. It is healing, soothing and builds compassion.”
