Laughter Yoga Legal Disclaimers and Liabilities


Laughter YogaTM is not a substitute for proper medical consultation for physical, mental and psychological illnesses and may not be suitable for everyone.

However, it may be contraindicated for people suffering from uncontrolled high blood pressure &/or heart disease, chest pain with exercise, exercise induced asthma, epilepsy, bleeding hemoroids, recent major surgery, hernias, severe backache, major psychiatric disorders and pregnancy. We also ask you to obstain if you currently have a cold or flu virsus or another contagious illness. This list is for guidance only and is not meant to be exhaustive. If in doubt consult your licensed medical professional for guidance. Anyone already undergoing physician-prescribed therapy should seek the advice of his or her doctor before reducing the dosage, stopping any treatment or beginning a new exercise routine. Even a healthy person experiencing discomfort while laughing or exercising, should discontinue immediately and seek expert medical advice. Please use your common sense: no strain, no pain.
