How to Reduce Stress & Create Happiness through Laughter Yoga

"It was great to see how the exercising of laughter brings people to the same level and ignores cultural and class differences. I particularly enjoyed to hear people walking in the corridors afterwards and suddenly burst out of laughter or to start a meeting with a short quick laughter experience."
Registrar of Deeds
"Laughter for Africa was a pleasant, positive and fun experience. It is a good way to relief stress. It was great fun to see how every one forgot about their ranks, status and problems and just behaved like children and enjoyed themselves. Where have you ever seen adults lying on their backs on the floor and laughed out loud!!! All the stiffness went out of the body and mind and relaxation took over. It was really contagious and great fun."
Hannelie, Bloemfontein
"Laughter yoga is a mind, body and soul experience like no other. It soothes and pleasures the brain; revitalizes and rejuvenates the body, and moves the spirit. Moments of bliss rare and special."
Stephen, Cape Town
