Laughter Yoga At Virginia TechLaughter Yoga has already proven to be a great tool to reduce the stress and pressures faced by students. In fact, Virginia Tech has introduced a ‘laughter class’ in the morning, which has become the happiest workout for the students. Tod Whitehurst who conducts this yoga class says, "We take advantage of the fact that laughter is contagious. Once you start getting laughter going, it usually continues on.”
The participants imitate laughter and play childlike games. Initially, some fee awkward, but soon they all find themselves laughing without any inhibition. "Yeah, at first I was like, ‘Why are we laughing?’ because we were laughing for no reason, really," said Briana Lanktree. “I had no idea what to expect. And you know what? Laughing at 8 a.m. in the morning is really great and it really pumped me up and made me feel less tense and less stressed."
Laughter also helps blood flow, oxygenates the body and brain, reduces stress, strengthens the immune system and creates a positive mental state which helps people to cope better with their problems.
