The Happydemic brings a unique wellbeing modality to Queensland workplaces, aged care centres and community organisations. Laughter yoga combines the breath of yoga with simulated laughter exercises, gentle stretches and playful spirit for proven physical, psychological and social benefits. It's a team builder and a stress buster, a social connector and a joy maker, adaptable for all ages and abilities.

The Happydemic's Heather Joy Campbell is Brisbane-based but works wherever laughter for wellbeing is needed in Queensland.

The Happydemic's Heather Joy is Brisbane-based but travels throughout Queensland for workshops and presentations (e.g. professional development days, conferences). In Brisbane, she delivers short (30min) laughter sessions for aged care residents as well as workers in their workplaces.

She is certified to train laughter leaders, those who can make this practice sustainable in their own workplace or community enabling regular (weekly) laughter club sessions to occur. This requires  2-day laughter yoga leader training. Heather Joy will travel to regional Queensland communities that want to establish a club in their neighbourhood (minimum 6 trainees in a region). She also trains aged care workers specifically in adaptive delivery of laughter yoga for frail aged.

Is laughter yoga about comedy?

Laughter yoga has nothing to do with jokes or comedy or punchlines and everything to do with wellbeing. We laugh less as we age because we link laughter with humour. It doesn't have to be that way as laughter yoga shows. It's a natural function, as natural as breathing -- only we forget to laugh.

why is laughter important?

Laughter is a natural mechanism to diffuse stress and anxieties. It's as natural as breathing. When we laugh long enough, the brain responds by releasing feel-good hormones that make us feel even better. 'Long enough' means about 20 minutes of hearty belly laughter interspersed with deep yoga breaths.

won't this be fake?

The brain doesn't differentiate between 'real' laughter and 'fake' (we call it 'intentional') laughter, if it's done willingly. And in a group, laughter soon becomes contagious.

what are laughter yoga's benefits?

Laughter yoga has proven physical, psychological and social benefits. Physical benefits include improved immune system and circulation. Psychological benefits include dissolving anxieties and fears, promoting positive outlooks. Socially, those who laugh together, connect.

how can laughter benefit a workplace?

Here are 5 compelling reasons for introducing laughter yoga into your workplace :

  1. It's a stress buster -- from the very first session
  2. Laughter yoga's breaths increase the body's net oxygen supply for optimal performance, concentration and focus.
  3. The playfulness of laughter yoga taps into the right side of the brain, the seat of creativity. It encourages new solutions to problems and nurtures fresh ideas.
  4. It'll have you feeling healthier
  5. Practised as a team, you'll be better connected with a higher level of trust and collaborative spirit.

Add these together and you have a vibrant productive workplace with greater job satisfaction and loyalty, less absenteeism, more pride and a 'Let's do it!' attitude.
