In Yoga-Laughter we do a breathing exercise & practice laughter to trigger a natural laughter spasm. If you observe someone naturally "splitting their sides with laughter" you will see that s/he exhales fully and sometimes gasps for air. So a laughter spasm is triggered most easily by laughing when you have fully exhaled.

The breathihng exercise we do is to pretend you just heard or saw the funniest thing in the world but are not allowed to laugh (due to your surroundings). You hold it in, hold it in, but suddenly you just can't hold it in any more and it bursts out! Breath out all the way then start giggling,,,,see what happens!       Simple? Yes it is!
