Laughter is the Best Medicine

You must have heard that laughter is the best medicine. But did you know that our brain does not know the difference between fake and real laughter. You get all the benefits of laughter like increased endorphins and more oxygen to the brain and many more in either case.  

  Laughter Yoga is a unique concept where anyone can laugh for no reason, without relying on humor, jokes or comedy. Various studies have shown that laughter Yoga can reduce blood pressure, heart rate & cortisol levels, increase positive emotions and reduce negative emotions & stress.

Come and laugh with Ajay Kapur on Sat, Jan 11 as part of WISDOM SATURDAY, A day Retreat.   In this workshop we will use Laughter Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation to laugh for no reason, drop our worries and be happy.
