What is laughter yoga? 3 basic yoga positions to try out!

Laughter is the best medicine. And when combined with yoga exercises, it can boost your mental and physical health even more. Of course, laughter yoga is all about laughing while you’re practicing your daily yoga routine.

If you’re new to yoga, you need to know of the basic positions or ‘asanas’ to develop and practice your daily laughter yoga routine.

Here are three positions you should not miss!

1. Savasana (lying on the back)

Lie down on your back with your legs and arms stretched. Keep them straight but you need to place your feet a few inches away from each other. Point them outward to the right and left directions. For instance, you need to bend your right foot toward the outer right and do the same with your left foot in the left direction. If you have back pain issues, you can consider skipping this position!

2. Baddha Konasana (the bound ankle)

Get your yoga mat or sit on any comfortable surface. Stretch out your arms toward the back and for support, rest your palms on the floor. The ankles of both your feet should be touching each other while you’re sitting!

3. Tadasana (the mountain asana)

This is the yoga position you’d love if you like standing. To follow this position, stand on your feet while having them next to each other or leave a few inches gap between them. Next, loosen up your shoulders and bend them downward to imitate the shape of a mountain. As for the rest of your body, let them stay straight - be it the legs or the arms. Let your palms face inward or outward while lifting your head.


You can try the above yoga positions as is, or do them while laughing. It’s totally up to you, but either way, you need to feel as comfortable as you can. So we recommend that you get these ultimate legging with pockets from Gatolina to suit any type of yoga position at all!
