                      What is Laughter Yoga?                                  

Nira Berry, Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher

LaughingRx   is a unique blend of modified Laughter Yoga and fun -an interactive laughter experience led by world renowned laughter expert:   Nira Berry

LaughingRx combines laughing exercises, fun, stress release & principles of Laughter Yoga, that incorporates deep breathing and laughing exercises that gives us an overall sense of well-being and joy, The continuous exhaling through laughter, removes stale air from lungs and achieves deep breathing that brings in large amounts of fresh oxygen to lungs & organs, leads to clearer thinking, focusing and energy. Laughter Yoga, also known as Hasya Yoga, intentional laughter & sustained laughter. Nira uses laughter exercises in her laughter wellness programs, webinars, telephone laughter groups and private laughter therapy.

In LaughingRx we mingle between ourselves experiencing laughter as never before. No floor exercises or poses or jokes used- just fun!.

Your body gets the benefits of laughing whether or not you are laughing for real or not. Real laughter and laughter benefits occurs as a result of our laughter exercises. It's contagious.  

Tell me about the benefits of laughter, laughter wellness and laughter yoga:

Laughing is the Best Medicine Humans were designed to laugh. Laughing is nature's stress-buster. It is our own personal stress release valve we can utilize whenever we need it!  It lifts our spirits with a happy feeling that makes us feel good and improves our behavior towards others. 

Just a few generations ago happy, healthy humans spent 20 minutes a day or more in laughter. Now adult daily laugh time is down to 5-7 minutes or less in many countries.  This is one of the worst aspects of modern life.

Laugh yourself healthy We all know that laughing makes us feel good. A regular 30 minute laughing session can have a profound impact on our health and overall sense of well-being.  Laughter is gentle exercise. It fill your lungs and body with oxygen, deep-clears your breathing passages and exercises your lungs. This is really important for people who don't get regular aerobic exercise. 

When we laugh our bodies release a cocktail of hormones and chemicals that have startling positive effects on our system. Stress is reduced, blood pressure drops, depression is lifted, your immune system is boosted and you feel great.  Western science is just starting to discover the great  and healing effects of laughing.

Why Laughter Yoga? About twenty years ago, Dr Madan Kataria, an Indian Medical Doctor was writing a paper for a medical journal titled 'Laughter is the best medicine'.   Convinced of the medical benefits of laughter and Yogic breathing exercises, Doctor Kataria was searching for a way to bring these benefits to modern man.   In a flash of inspiration, Laughter Yoga was born.  Since then, countless people all over the world today enjoy the benefits of a daily dose of laughter in laughing sessions in groups or in the workplace.                                                                                    Nira Berry was trained & Certified as a Laughter Yoga Teacher by Dr. Madan Kataria in Switzerland.

Anyone can laugh without reason you don't need jokes or a sense of humor

    Hi Nira, my colleague Meghann Schwartz met you over the weekend, and I wanted to contact you. I do programming for a number of women engagements for the Jewish Federation in Howard County, and I'd
    like to get more information about what you do. Specifically, since we are very small with a limited budget, what do you charge? Hope to hear from you.

  • Robert Benjamin (Thursday, August 27 15 01:09 am EDT)

    Thank you Nira for your uplifting laughter program for our annual meeting! Everyone was smiling for hours following!
