I can't think of any other body-mind technique that has caught on this way. I told [the] American Senate Committee during a hearing about healthcare reform that laughter yoga could help lower American healthcare costs.
Laughter connects you with people. It's almost impossible to maintain any kind of distance or any sense of social hierarchy when you're just howling with laughter. Laughter is a force for democracy.
Laughter yoga exemplifies a form of 'right-brain thinking' that managers should promote.
Laughter yoga is a perfect way to laugh and get exercise at the same time. It approaches laughter as a body exercise so it's easy to laugh even if you're depressed or in a bad mood...I've tried it, and it works.
