Laughter yoga is a unique exercise routine that combines unconditional laughter with yogic breathing and stretching. We don’t rely on jokes, humour or comedy.
We do it in a group situation, and with the use of eye contact and playfulness, what may have been fake laughter to begin with, soon turns into real, contagious laughter.
This is all based on the scientific fact that the body can’t tell the difference between real and fake laughter, so even if it’s fake, you are still getting all of the great health benefits.
It began in Mumbai, India in 1995 and was set up by Dr, Madan Kataria who started the first ever laughter yoga club. There are now over 16000 laughter clubs in over 101 countries worldwide.
