Happy Vs Flourishing episode 20 with Melanie Bloch is all about laughter. Melanie is an instructor in Laughter Yoga and if you've never heard of that before, you'll learn much more in this episode. There is far more laughter involved in the sessions than yoga, and the body oozes with feel-good chemicals as a result of so much laughing.

Topics discussed:
  • Origins of Laughter Yoga
  • Therapeutic benefits
  • Laughter Yoga has been an immense relief for many people in this pandemic
  • Practicing this in a corporate environment
  • Adapting to doing sessions online
