Four Reasons Why It's OK To Giggle On Your Yoga Mat

We mm…Yoga! crew are known for our lightheartedness. People often tell us our classes are fun. For some, especially if they've practiced in a more serious environment before, it's a surprise. 

But you know? Like I've said before, life is serious enough. You don't need to make yoga overly serious too. 

Why it's OK to giggle on your yoga mat

Here are our top four reasons it's OK to giggle on your yoga mat:

  1. Yoga is about giving yourself permission to be who you are. It’s about finding your true self and embracing all the things you discover. Including joy.
  2. As adults we are expected to ‘behave’ all the time, to leave behind the silliness and frivolity of childhood and ‘grow up’. Bah! Boring! Who says adults can’t have fun? Who says we should be serious all the time? Why can’t we laugh more often? 
  3. Yoga is about stress relief & laughing is the ultimate stress relief, so it seems smart to combine the two.
  4. Yoga is also about letting go of old patterns of behavior and thought, so why not let go of the seriousness we are expected to cultivate all the time?

Yoga is about relaxing, so sometimes it's good to forget about being a grown up and giggle.

As Karen says, 

Well, the real question is, why not have a giggle? If I look back on all the happy times I've had, a lot of it is filled with laughter and silliness.
