Laughter Day: Learn to do simple laughter yoga
Today, Laughter Day (First Sunday of May), which was founded by Laughter Yoga Guru, Dr. Madan Kataria to highlight the ability of laughter to provide physical and holistic benefits, is being celebrated across world with events related to laughter, humour and comedy.

 However, to reap the benefits of laughter yoga do it daily for 5 to 10 minutes with empty stomach. Central to Laughter Yoga is the scientific principle that the body cannot differentiate between fake laughter and the real one. Keeping this in view, laughter yoga tries to unify deep breathing, physical movements, and laughing.

Laughter yoga can work as a form of controlled and conscious exercise that combines body and mind.

Here is the simple laughing yoga for a beginner.

1.       Warm up by clapping your hands synchronously with 1-2-3 rhythm five times

2.       Either stand straight or sit in Sukhasana

3.       Breathe from your belly with deep inhales and exhalations five times.

4.       Do belly laugh 5 times with a loud "ho-ho, ha-ha-ha" hearty and loud belly-laugh sequence

5.       End with two silent deep breaths.

6.       Repeat the sequence five to ten times

The basic thing to practice deep breathing exercises with big belly laughs. You should practice deep breathing throughout your entire laughter yoga session to allow you to access deep laughs. Try to regulate deep breathing with laughter at the end of every exhale.

After, some individual practice, join a laughter group or club for laughing collectively in a variety of ways. The group laughter works as catharsis and stress buster.  It is being claimed that laughter yoga when done regularly leads to a higher release of endorphins; improved circulation to your lymphatic system; stronger immune system, and healthier cardiovascular system.
