Laughter Yoga for the Business World
Occupational stress is a rapidly growing global phenomenon. Pressure at work with its damaging side effects is being felt in almost every country, within every level of the workforce.
Laughter Yoga has the potential for decreasing stress, increasing concentration, thus improving staff performance in the workplace. Recent studies, both in India and the USA, showed substantial stress reduction and increased staff productivity following three weeks of Laughter Yoga sessions. Several companies in India routinely practice Laughter Yoga prior to starting their business day.
