Laughter is the Best Medicine
Laughter Yoga Could Help...
About Laughter Yoga
Laughter yoga was made popular as an exercise routine developed by Indian physician Dr. Madan Kataria,
who writes about the practice in his 2002 book Laugh For No Reason.
Claire has gleaned the best practices of this foundation idea and shaped into her own program.
The idea of forced laughter to help drive away the blues or negative thoughts or just refresh your mind really works.
It releases over 10,000 healing chemicals into your body, and positive hormones such as endorphins,
like the “runners high” we get from extended exercise, and oxytocin, the bonding hormone.
It increases your immune system and decreases anxiety and depression.
One of Claire’s most recent experiences is with a family wanting to have a positive start and ongoing support during the school year.
Each Sunday Claire meets with them and, using the principles of laughter yoga, gets their week off to a positive and fresh start.
They also find themselves using the techniques during the week.
She is also beginning to introduce the healing effects of Laughter Yoga to the patients of Healing Springs Ranch,
is an adult residential treatment facility focusing on the treatment of addiction and the underlying trauma.
