  • Body/mind exercises that works to relieve physical/mental & emotional tensions.
  • Laughter gets the heart pumping more blood, and the lungs breathing more oxygen.
  • Positive and life-affirming motions create positive emotions individually, collectively and for the company.
  • We repattern our haibutal responses to stress with humor, laughter and positive intention. Neuroplasticity that restructures the neurons of the brain to be more positive and creative, which is fundamental in the prevention and cure of many diseases.
  • Interrupts power struggles and helps people understand each other better, find the humor in difficutl situations and focus on strengthening the underlying unity.
  • Laughter is the universal language and as the expression of the heart, connects people to share with open minds and hearts.
  • A form of joyful meditation and stress-relief.

Our workplace laughter interventions typically unfold in a smooth blend of action and relaxation, group interactions and introspection. Participants are taken on a fluid journey into the movements and behaviors of health, joy and connectedness. Sessions are filled with positive and life-affirming interactions. Laughter is the glue between all activities, and it is used as a form of elective exercise. There are no jokes or comedy. We simply choose to laugh, because we can. This is an activity that can be done standing or seated. No equipment or particular articles of clothing are required. The minimum recommended duration is 20 minutes. A typical intervention lasts one to two hours.

“Ambujam Lakshmi provided a Laughter Healing session for our executive management group at Core Power Yoga, which created a stronger connection for the team and improved communication. I highly recommend bringing this unique experience she offers to your company.” “

Talent Agent@Innovative Artists

When Ambujam Lakshmi brought her Laughter Healing to our office at Innovative Artists, it not only completely changed my point of view about work but tremendously helped my coworkers and I release tension and stress. We work in a fast-paced environment where anxiety levels can rise swiftly and it’s sometimes hard to focus, breathe and re-center. Using Lakshmi’s unique techniques even after the class helped us continue to loosen up to create a less tense atmosphere which we know is essential to staying successful.
