Laughter is the best medicine. In this Joy Burst with Dr. Neil Prose from Duke University Medical Center, we will exercise our mental and physical well-being through Laughter Yoga. This meditation technique — laughing for no reason — helps relieve our stress, ease tension, and bring our minds and bodies back into balance during this challenging time of uncertainty.
Laughter Yoga was developed by Dr. Madan Katana, a family physician in India. It now occurs in 53 countries, and there are more than 5,000 Laughter Yoga clubs worldwide.
Dr. Prose is a Professor of Pediatrics, Dermatology and Global Health, and co-director of the Health Humanities Lab at Duke. He learned about laughter yoga through the documentary “The Laughing Club of India” and is a certified Laughter Yoga instructor.
The Experience Lab is hosting 15-minute, live Experiences (via Zoom) with friends of The Experience Lab each week. Exemplars will virtually share music, poetry, meditation, and inspiring readings meant to serve as a midweek energy changer for you, your team, and the industry.
