Team Building - in the business world, laughter increases communication, creativity, and productivity while breaking down barriers.
It is often a difficult task to find an activity which creates a bond between all corporate employees, those attending a seminar or merely a local meeting. Many suggested activities separate those attending into teams and immediately an adversarial atmosphere is created. While this may create a bond between those who accomplish the team building task most successfully, between this now, elite group and the other team/s or those in the same team whom do not feel they contributed to winning, there is a separation created. This is not conducive to breaking down company barriers and thus creating a desired company group loyalty, that crosses the boundaries of status and actual or perceived contributions to the company's purpose.
Laughter Yoga is non-adversarial, non-religious and non-political. It accommodates those with a challenged health status, those with a different language base and evens the playing field across status barriers. For Laughter Yoga is a playing field, where we lead all present through techniques designed to bring them to a state of joy, laughing for no reason other than it is joyful. We follow this with a relaxation session that is equal to two hours sleep and yet, in a short time, leaves one energized while refreshed.
Bonds are formed within those taking part. Openness to varied points of view and needs becomes a part of the group consciousness, mood is lightened and creativity is enhanced. Problem solving takes on a new direction when those involved have just bonded in the international language of laughter.
Complete Laughter Yoga sessions usually last between 60 and 90 minutes.
