1. I just saw many people laughing in the videos, but what is laughter yoga?

我在你們的影片中看到很多人在笑,但什麼是愛笑瑜伽?

Yes, you are right. Laughter Yoga is an aerobic exercises with the combination of laughing activities, physical movement, yogic breathing and imagination. You will feel relax after doing laughter yoga. Too bad that our video and camera can only capture the laughing faces and voices, but not the sweating …Ha-Ha-Ha!

對,這些人就是在玩愛笑瑜伽﹗愛笑瑜伽是一種帶氧運動,結合大笑練習、肢體動作、瑜伽式呼吸以及想像力。當做完愛笑瑜伽後,你會感到十分舒暢。我們的相機和攝影機只能把笑聲和笑臉拍下,但沒有把汗水也拍下呢﹗哈哈哈﹗

 

2. Why we need to do laughter yoga if I am the kind of person can laugh a lot every day?

我本身是經常笑的人,為什麼還要玩愛笑瑜伽呢?

That’s good for you. According to the medical research, we need to laugh for 15-20 minutes continuously to have the benefit to physical and mental health, which is difficult for people who love to laugh a lot. In laughter yoga, we are doing the exercise in a group setting, which means that through the eye contact and child like playfulness, our laughter turn from fake to real one, and we spread around in the group. In a group setting, we can easily achieve this continuous laughing.

這真是太好了。根據醫學證明,我們需要連續大笑15-20分鐘才能得到身心的得益,但即使是經常笑的朋友也很難在每天連續大笑到15-20分鐘。在愛笑瑜伽,我們以小組形式進行,透過眼神交流及孩童的玩法,令假笑變成真實具感染性的大笑。由於在小組的玩法,我們很容易持續的笑下去。

 

3. I am not flexible, can I do Laughter Yoga?

我的身體很硬,能否玩愛笑瑜伽?

Of course yes. In Laughter Yoga, we are not talking the flexibility of your body, but we are laughing. It is easy for anyone, from 3-years old kids to 100-years-old senior friends, they can all do it. So let’s try that together!

當然可以玩﹗在愛笑瑜伽,我們對身體的柔軟度毫無要求﹗我們只要你扮笑﹗任何人也可以很容易學會,由3歲的小孩到100歲的老友記都可以玩到愛笑瑜伽。你也一起試吧﹗

4. What should we wear for the laughter yoga session?

我應該穿哪些服飾參與愛笑瑜伽活動?

 

You can wear anything they feel comfortable to walk for 30 minutes will do. We have people in suit, dresses and high heels to do laughter yoga before.

你可以穿著任何你認為讓你舒適的步行30分鐘的服飾便可以。我們試過有人著西裝、裙子、高跟鞋來玩愛笑瑜伽﹗

 

5. What’s the difference between yoga and laughter yoga?

大笑瑜伽跟瑜伽有何分別?

Yoga in studio normally refers to Hatha Yoga, which is the practicing steady and comfortable postures in order to achieve healthy body and clamming one’s mind. Depends on different "brands" of yoga, you may be practicing dynamic movement or holding a posture for a while, but most of the practice time is an individual work (except partner yoga).

 

Laughter Yoga is a laughing aerobic exercises, which focused on imagination and laughing. You will have dynamic body movement and interaction with other people as a group work. Laughter yoga practice helps you to exercise your tummy a lot, and achieve focus on faking the laughters and make your body thinks you are happy and changes the chemicals component in your body. After the chemical component changes, you will feel relaxing and happy.

瑜伽︰在一般的瑜伽課堂是指哈達瑜伽,即練習一些穏定和舒適的動作令身體更強壯和平靜。視乎不同的瑜伽“品牌”,你可能會練習一些動感較強的動作或是定格動作,但大部份時間主要是讓你一個人的運動(除了拍檔瑜伽)。

大笑瑜伽是一種大笑運動,主要集中在想像力和大笑。你會體驗快速的身體動作和跟其他人在小組互動。大笑瑜伽不但幫你練習你的腹部,還能從扮笑中令身體以為你是快樂而改變身體化學質成份。當這些成份改變時,你會變得更放鬆和心情愉快﹗

 

6.  Why Laughing Helps your business?

Due to too much stress, work place has become too serious. People think serious people are more responsible and more productive. This is not true. More productive people are those who take their work seriously, but take themselves lightly.

Scientific research shows laughter can help resolve workplace stress and create a happy, energetic and motivated workforce. But, until now there was no reliable and effective system to deliver laughter. Humor was the only tool available, but it is not reliable and seldom leads to continuous hearty laughter.

 

Laughter Yoga is a breakthrough laughter delivery system with following unique features:

• ANYONE can laugh and one does not need a sense of humor, jokes or comedies.

• One doesn’t need to be happy or in a good mood in order to laugh because laughter is done as an exercise in a group.

• Anyone can do it; it is scientifically proven; easy to learn and a lot of fun. People can feel the benefits right from the very first session.

• It is cost effective, less time consuming and scientifically proven.
