As a quick follow up to my previous post about laughter yoga for RVers, I want you to check out a YouTube clip that we did with our friend Dave Berman.
We’re honored that he asked us to participate in his year-long “Laugh of the Day” video project to increase awareness of laughter yoga’s benefits and inspire a million or more people to adopt a daily laughter practice.
Laughter yoga is a great tool for couples communication (especially those of us living and working with each other in tight spaces). Dave wanted to demonstrate some useful exercises RVers can do when times get bumpy. It’s a long interview but fun, check it out:

Laughter yoga is the best free therapy there is. It transcends language. It doesn’t require you to pay any dues. You don’t need special clothing or gear. There are no prerequisites and you don’t even need to have anything to laugh about. Basically, you have no excuses to not try it. After all, you want to feel good, right?
The goal of laughter yoga is to laugh on purpose, anytime you want or need to, because laughter makes you feel good no matter what frame of mind you’re in at the moment. Visit Laughter Yoga International to learn how to bring it into your life. This website is the home of Dr Madan Kataria, “The Laughter Guru.” You’ve probably seen him on television, the man is famous. Here’s what he says about laughter yoga benefits:
- You can laugh with special guided techniques: It’s easy. Anyone can laugh for no reason without relying on humor, jokes or comedy and one can feel the benefits on the very first session!
- Real and Contagious Laughter: We initiate laughter as a body exercise in a group and with eye contact and childlike playfulness. It soon turns into real and contagious laughter.
- Oxygenates Your Body and Brain: Laughter Yoga is combination of deep breathing exercises from yoga and laughter exercises, which oxyginates our body and brain, makes us feel more healthy and energetic.
