Fun and laughter - laughing at one’s own mistakes, too - are at the heart of all methods employed by fitlachmit.
The objective is to be complete, not perfect.
Laughing can help you get some distance from stressful situations and identify new perspectives and solutions.
Laughter Yoga exercises
Laughter Yoga exercises are mostly pantomime exercises or stretching, clapping and breathing exercises. It doesn’t matter whether these exercises make you laugh or not; you laugh for no reason.
Playful exercises, for the most part inspired by improvisational theatre, serve to stimulate both halves of the brain, thus boosting the brain performance potential.
They appear simple but are difficult to do: coordination exercises help to deliberately challenge well-worn patterns and mindsets.
You use your hands to clap different sequences on your body, thus creating simple rhythms. These can be completed by a text or movement.
Intensive laughing often leads to playfulness. Depending on the size of the group, the room and the given time, playing - mostly without any tools - forms part of a laughter training session.
All exercises are separated by rhythmic clapping in order to signal the end of each exercise.
Breathing and vocal exercises
It is necessary to take a break between active exercises. During these breaks, we focus on our breathing, sometimes also using the vocal cords.
15-20 minutes of laughter training each day is enough to provide your body, mind and soul with all the benefits of laughing.
