Harmony Happy Hour! Laughter Yoga is a unique form of exercise in which ANYONE can laugh without relying on humor, jokes or comedy. We initiate laughter as an exercise in a group, then with eye contact and childlike playfulness, the elicited laughter turns into genuine, contagious laughter. It is called Laughter Yoga because we combine deep breathing techniques from yoga with laughter exercises. Laughter Yoga is based on the scientific fact that your body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter…you still get the same health benefits either way…so, fake it 'til you make it! Laughter Yoga was started by a medical doctor in India, Dr. Madan Kataria, in a park in Mumbai with just 5 people in 1995. Today, there are thousands of Laughter Clubs in over 72 countries around the world!
