Laughter yoga was recently featured on ITV’s This Morning, as hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield took part in a demonstration led by Louise Claire Gates.

Louise introduced them to the therapy, explaining its origins and health benefits, saying that belly laughter can produce similar benefits to running and other exercises. She explained that when pretending to laugh, the body doesn’t really know the difference, so the pretend laughter will very soon become real laughter.

Holly and Phillip were then introduced to a number of exercises that could be practised as part of a yoga therapy session.
