Both Laughter Yoga & Natya Aerobics are universally praised for their efficacy in improving the physical fitness of those who partake. Aside from the self-evident physical advantages, both exercise forms offer benefits that transcend the physical dimension of exercising through their ability to foster skills that every employer wants to see in their employees. Although both forms are characterised by their enjoyable nature, they are effective in cultivating and refining skills that are desirable in the workplace- albeit, always in a fun, entertaining fashion.

Improve team work

All workers should be able to operate comfortably and efficiently within a group yet some perceive working collaboratively as a source of anxiety. As laughter is a social experience that requires external stimulus, Laughter Yoga can greatly improve the relationships between people in your work place by injecting some fun, light-heartedness into their relations. Conducted in groups, this therapeutic form of exercise can eliminate feelings of rivalry, competitiveness and isolation by fostering cooperation.

Develop cognitive skills

After a laborious day in the office, workers can often feel tired and unmotivated, resulting in a deterioration of their mental faculties. The very nature of Natya Aerobics revitalizes the mind with the repetition of rhythmic, fast-paced movements whilst providing a thorough cardiovascular workout. These varying combinations of dance movements will increase concentration levels and their ability to retain information: mental training that will tease out two important skills that should be nurtured in your workplace.  To get an idea of what this is about, please watch the promotional video by clicking this link and scrolling down the homepage:

Decrease stress levels

Whilst there are numerous services available that target stress management, Laughter Yoga is unique in its ability to relax both body and mind. It works simultaneously to reduce physical and mental stress, improving the happiness and sociability of those who partake. Laughing works positively to instil a healthy mental attitude and restore a sense of optimism in everybody: if your employees are happy, this will result in increased productivity and a better attitude when at work.

Improve communication

A lack of communication between employees can result in decreased productivity. Natya Aerobics has a social dimension through its focus on encouraging participation and its ability to increase the confidence of those who engage. It is therefore an effective way of improving communication skills between people. Laughter Yoga is similar in its ability to do this as it creates an increase in positive emotions and a decrease of negative emotions by bringing a smile to the faces of your staff members. This in turn can play a part in building their confidence, thereby enhancing communication by giving people the confidence to express themselves.
