Fall in Laugh is a modernized laughter therapy which combines laughter exercises, yogic breathing, and meditation to release the tensions and stress of daily life.
Adapted from various teachings, the practice starts by utilising Pranayama yogic- and mindful breathing to relax and inspire synergy within the participants. This is followed by a series of exercises that trigger localize laughter within the body aimed at releasing built up muscle tension.
This experience had been an auxiliary class at Stanford in their cursus "Humor & Resilience" during the year 2020-2021.
FALL IN LAUGH
In case you’re feeling shy—it’s been proven that the body doesn’t know the difference between a forced laugh or a real one. In less than 10 seconds, a forced laugh may turn into a real one and as your laughter increases, so does your joy.
Laughter boosts blood flow by up to 50% and activates serotonin and dopamine release in your brain.
Theories and practical applications are shared throughout the session which ends with a short meditation; allowing a moment to be mindful of what has been learnt and internalise the positive effect of the practice on the body.
