World Laughter Day 2014 NYC



The Laughter Leaders of NYC present New York City’s celebration of World Laughter Day taking place on Sunday, May 4th from 1:30pm until 3:00pm at Riverside Park‘s North Lawn at 79th Street.

World Laughter Day is celebrated all over the world on the first Sunday in May. Our mission is world peace through laughter. Thi...

s is not a political event. Our event is celebratory and playful. We expect to unite people through the power of laughter. And NEW YORKERS NEED TO LAUGH AGAIN!!!

World Laughter Day is born in the tradition of other grass-roots events, such as Earth Day and World Aids Day. This year, May 4th, World Laughter Day, will be marked as a big event in NYC, 2014 and future years to come.

The laughter yoga movement was founded in the mid 1990’s by Mumbai based Dr. Madan Kataria. To date, there are over ten thousand laughter clubs in the world. Innovative laughter yoga exercises are based on yogic principles and are performed while standing up.These fun and playful exercises have many health benefits and include laughter with movement, some stretching,deep breathing and a seated laughter meditation..

Join us for a celebration of World Peace through laughter as we perform laughter yogic exercises, dance to the fun and spirited musical sounds of The Silas Merez Duo  and have your face painted!

Bring the kids or just your “inner kid”!!

We look forward to laughing with you!

    I have a class at 11, and with the half hour time change, I can't make it from Brooklyn to the Upper West Side in time. It would have been tight at 1:30, but this is impossible. Please notify me of future events.
