Laugh your socks off with Snow #369 who teaches laughter yoga


I’m Snow, and I’m facilitating laughter yoga sessions, in London. Laughter yoga is a really fun wellness program, that actually has incredible benefits. We basically interact through laughter, so it’s a system where the teacher shows a series of laughter exercises and for the group dynamic and interaction, their initially initiated laughter turns into real laughter. Our brain cannot really feel the difference whether we laugh for real or whether we fake it. So we always say, you can come to the laughter club even if you are not in a good mood, even if you don’t have a good sense of humour, it doesn’t matter at all. About six years ago, I just accidentally came across laughter yoga training on the web, and I started laughing out really loud because since I was a little girl, my problem was that I’ve been just unconditionally laughing at many things, and people would often call me and odd person. And so I thought that it would be a really great opportunity for me to now use it as an excuse that I’m just a laughter yogi. Once a month, I run a free laughter club as a service to London community because I really believe that laughter is such a great bonding experience for people, and it’s a big city, people feel alienated, people feel lonely. Obviously it’s a vulnerable experience, you’re in a group of strangers and you are expected to laugh. But it’s such a transformation, it’s beautiful to see how people slowly soften and every single session, it’s guaranteed that people will leave uplifted.
