There is one common sentence that business people (should) ask themselves when they are looking to purchase any sorts of goods or services and here it is: “how much money will this cost (and/or make) me?” Everyone talks about the benefits and features, pros and cons, needs and wants, sizes and shapes, but businesses talk in dollars so we’ve made it simple for you and matched the proven benefits that Laughter Yogas provide with money.
Stress is too expensive to be ignored.
Laughter Yoga is a proven way to help resolve workplace stress (up to 28% improvement!)
What the world famous and respected Mayo Clinic says about the short and long term stress relief laughter helps you achieve (“Whether you’re guiltily guffawing at an episode of “South Park” or quietly giggling at the latest New Yorker cartoon, laughing does you good. Laughter is a great form of stress relief, and that’s no joke.“)
Low morale, low level of team integration and/or negative attitudes are too expensive to be ignored.
Laughter Yoga is a proven way to enhance employees morale, resilience, and personal efficacy beliefs (up to 28% improvement!)
Laughter is part of the solution and makes good business sense. We use it as a powerful business tool to help raise people’s positive level in the present so that their brain can experience a laughter advantage. Research has shown that people perform significantly better at that level than when they are at a negative, neutral or stressed level. Intelligence, creativity, energy levels rise, every single business outcome improves. Harvard research has shown that your brain at positive is 31% more productive than at negative, neutral or stressed. You are 37% better at sales. Doctors are 19% faster and more accurate at coming with the correct diagnosis.
A workplace laughter group can appeal to a diverse range of employees, can be effective with minimal investment of time, and may have sustained positive effects on self-beliefs that have been shown to correlate with positive workplace behaviors.Heidi Beckman, Ph.D., UWHC-Health Psychology
Laughter Yoga is a breakthrough laughter delivery system that enables a person to laugh continuously for 15 to 20 minutes or more with short breaks of yogic breathing. You don’t need jokes, a sense of humor or comedy. It is easy and inexpensive to implement: no equipment or uniforms are required. Laughter sessions can be delivered in your own meeting room.
We at the American School of Laughter Yoga have further developed this method and created Laughter Wellness, a complete wellbeing workout that integrates Laughter Yoga exercises and the power of breath, movement, sound, cooperative games and more into a well codified and substantiated, low-cost methodology that’s grounded in science and cognitive psychology. This is Laughter Yoga 2.0.
