Laughter Yoga The term "yoga" in laughter yoga can be misleading. There are no traditional "body poses" that you find in common yoga classes. Its main focus, as the title points out, is on Laughter. Laughter is one of the best stress and tension releasers and it has an immediate impact of lifting the mood. There are no jokes, just simple exercises that stimulate laugher. Expect lots of fun and a feeling of exhilaration afterwards!
