What you'll do
"We don't laugh because we are happy but we are happy because we laugh." — Madan Kataria Let’s forget our worries during a one-hour session of laughing therapy and laughter yoga. This experience uses a modern technique adapted to your daily life. It starts with Pranayama, the breath used by the yogi to relax and create a synergy within the group. After we practice some mindful breathing, we’ll pivot to exercises that trigger easy laughter. During this transition, I’ll share theories and help you locate laughter within the body. This activation will make us laugh more and more. Please don’t worry if you’re feeling shy—it’s been proven that the body doesn’t know the difference between a forced laugh and a real one. In less than 10 seconds, a forced laugh actually becomes a real one. As our laughing increases, our joy does too. Laughter boosts your blood flow by 50 percent and releases chemicals that activate serotonin and dopamine in your brain. We’ll finish by meditating and taking a moment to share what we feel together. This experience is great for team-building if you’re looking to reconnect with your colleagues and teammates while working from home.

My name is Thomas Cock, and I love to laugh. Born in Congo but raised in Belgium, I’m someone who’s always explored new paths throughout life. I’ve lived (and laughed!) all over the world. In Montreal, I became a humorist and performed at Just For Laughs, a big comedy festival. From Montreal, I moved to Paris, where I was an actor. I eventually found myself in San Francisco, where I worked for NGOs and really discovered how laughing could heal. I started organizing tours, writing jokes, and putting together comedy dinners. Laughter has been a spiritual journey for me, with the most recent revelation being laughter yoga. Ever since I discovered laughter yoga, I’ve been practicing it to bring joy to my life. I’m passionate about sharing its virtues because I truly believe laughing deeply and fully can promote health and happiness.
