Breathe. Laugh. Be happy. The science behind laughter yoga.
(CNN) — The cackles can be heard from far beyond the brick walls of the private garden playing host to a Laughter Yoga Atlanta session. On a bright weekend morning, at the height of the steamy Georgia summer, a group of about 40 students is visibly invigorated.
At intervals they chant or clap, frolicking in a large open circle while purposely seeking eye-contact with the nearest person – most likely someone they just met. Welcome to laughter yoga.
