योग-साधना LifeSkills/जीवन कौशल ☆ Laughter Yoga For A Better Sex Life ☆ Shri Jagat Singh Bisht

Shri Jagat Singh Bisht (Master Teacher: Happiness & Well-Being, Laughter Yoga Master Trainer, Author, Blogger, Educator and Speaker.) ☆ Laughter Yoga For A Better Sex Life ☆ I have been hesitating for quite a while to share what follows here because the subject remains hush-hush and taboo in the land of Kamasutra and Osho even today. We had a gentleman, on the wrong side of fifties, in our laughter sessions who was very punctual – a rare virtue in this part of the world – and sincere. He went through and through the literature available on Laughter Yoga and regularly discussed about its health benefits like better respiration, stronger immunity, stress busting, lower blood pressure and cardio-vascular workout. One day he confided to me over telephone that his married life has improved immensely and he feels happier as a consequence of regular laughter yoga. He and his wife had almost accepted that their sex life was over by virtue of their age but once they...

योग-साधना LifeSkills/जीवन कौशल ☆ Laughter Yoga – Laugh For No Reason ☆ Shri Jagat Singh Bisht

Shri Jagat Singh Bisht (Master Teacher: Happiness & Well-Being, Laughter Yoga Master Trainer, Author, Blogger, Educator and Speaker.) ☆ Laughter Yoga - Laugh For No Reason ☆   Sun demands no reason to shine; Water demands no reason to flow; A child demands no reason to smile; Why do we need a reason to laugh?   Laughter Yoga is a Life Changing Experience. According to Dr Madan Kataria, Founder of Laughter Clubs Movement, “When you laugh, you change and when you change, the whole world changes.” Laughter Yoga combines unconditional laughter with yogic breathing (Pranayama). Anyone can laugh for no reason, without relying upon humour, jokes or comedy. In a session, laughter is simulated as a body exercise in a group. The group maintains eye contact and childlike playfulness, and laughter soon turns real and contagious. The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on the scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. According to a study by Dr Michael Titze, a German Psychologist, people used to...

योग-साधना LifeSkills/जीवन कौशल ☆ Laughter Yoga – The Best Ice-Breaker For Seminars And Workshops☆ Shri Jagat Singh Bisht

Shri Jagat Singh Bisht (Master Teacher: Happiness & Well-Being, Laughter Yoga Master Trainer, Author, Blogger, Educator and Speaker.) ☆ Laughter Yoga - The Best Ice-Breaker For Seminars And Workshops☆ I have been a behavioural science faculty for a pretty long time now. It is a practice to begin all training programmes, seminars and workshops with a short ice-breaking session. There are numerous ways of de-freezing the participants who come from varied backgrounds and are usually a little tense and anxious before the start of the programme. Earlier, I tried many different ways of making the participants comfortable and relaxed. Then, I watched Dr Madan Kataria, the founder of Laughter Yoga movement world-wide, conducting some laughter yoga exercises in the open at the Lokhandwala Park, Mumbai more than a decade ago. It was a 'eureka' moment for me. I had found the ultimate ice-breaker. I just had to muster courage to try it. First, I tried to use Laughter Yoga as an ice-breaker in the training programmes...

Shri Jagat Singh Bisht (Master Teacher: Happiness & Well-Being, Laughter Yoga Master Trainer, Author, Blogger, Educator and Speaker.) ☆ Laughter Yoga - Compelling Purpose ☆ Anurag, my son, is pursuing masters in business administration at the Auckland University Of Technology, New Zealand. He loves sports more than study. Sometimes, when a sport enters the study arena, he gets intensely involved in study too! During the course of learning about high performance teams (HPT), they are required to go out every week in the water and improve rowing skills collectively without the fear of drowning. This way they are taught not only the management skills that are required in the workplace but with the help of the rowing club they imbibe a practical aspect to it which amplifies their learning ability. The compelling purpose of their team is to become a legend so that they create a benchmark which will be referred to henceforth to all upcoming HPT classes. According to management experts, compelling purpose is...

Some of them were very young, just three or four years old in the Nursery class, and the older ones were about twelve years old in their Eighth standard. We started the session as usual with clapping and chanting....

Shri Jagat Singh Bisht (Master Teacher: Happiness & Well-Being, Laughter Yoga Master Trainer, Author, Blogger, Educator and Speaker.) ☆ Laughter Yoga and Diabetes ☆ November 14 is observed as World Diabetes Day to spread awareness about the silent killer. Diabetes is emerging as a major health hazard worldwide. In India, the situation is grimmer as diabetes is often coupled with hypertension and cardiac problems which make it deadly. Japanese scientist Murakami conducted several experiments over a period of time to ascertain the effect of laughter on blood sugar levels. He reached the conclusion that laughter has a definite lowering impact on blood sugar. During the course of his research, he found that 23 genes are activated with vigorous laughter.
