Yoga coupled with laughter sessions
Talking to Transcontinental Times about the laughter sessions he said, ” I’ve been conducting many workshops for the community from my corporate days. I love to spread happiness galore since the world today is craving for getting the happiness quotient, since I find that each one is running after something or another and people appear to be generally stressed.”
Cancherla is also working for the welfare of the homeless and underprivileged people of the society. Along with this, he also helps people belonging to elderly homes and believes in using laughter as a holistic approach.
Cancherla also interacts with people with online laughter yoga clubs. Recently, he collaborated with Global-Laughter Yoga Wellness Clubs through Zoom.
Opportunities in the simple things of life
Cancherla has brought significant results in improving the lives of people around him. He actively participates and conducts online laughter sessions. “People wait to plan their retirement and to pursue their passion; instead I began at 55 years my retirement planning process and carved out this venture of the laughter sessions, which I undertake regularly. People have lost simple aspects of life. The ability to be childlike and spread immense joy, thereby releasing endorphins (the happy hormones) for self and the community that I interact with,” he said.
