A laughter yoga session is a great activity to include in your hen party! Sessions include games and laughter exercises – including getting to know you exercises. Laughter sessions are strictly alcohol free affairs – however there is evidence to suggest that laughter and deep breathing can help minimise hangovers!
“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation” – Plato

Laughter helps us feel more connected to one another – in fact some anthropologists believe that the purpose of laughter is to maintain the cohesion of social groups. A recent study by the Open University conducted on couples in long term relationships found that the no. 1 thing that British couples appreciated about each other was their sense of humour or ability to make each other laugh. Laughter is therefore fundamental: it provides the glue in many of our significant relationships especially in the workplace.

‘Emma was a calm but inspiring leader who adapted the activities to ensure everyone lost their initial inhibitions and joined in with glee. The activities were playful, funny, cognitively stimulating and emphasised the good relationships between staff. By the end of the session, when asked to describe how they felt, the teachers used words like “energised”, “calm”, “happy”, “relaxed”. Several staff also reported sleeping very well that night.’ – Gillian, Headteacher, Fosse Bank School
