What we're about

Join us for some fun yoga laughter exercises to improve your health and happiness! What is Laughter Yoga? Laughter Yoga is a unique concept where anyone can laugh for no reason without relying on jokes or comedy. How do you practice it? We initiate laughter as an exercise in a group but with eye contact and childlike playfulness. It soon turns into real and contagious laughter. Why is it called Laughter Yoga? The reason we call it Laughter Yoga is because it combines laughter exercises with yoga breathing. This brings more oxygen to the body and to the brain which makes you feel more energetic and healthy. Really? The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter if done with willingness. You get the same health benefits. The history behind Laughter Yoga: It was started by a medical doctor, Dr. Madan Kataria from India with just five people in a Mumbai park in 1995. Today there are more than 6000 Laughter Yoga Clubs in more than 72 countries. In 2015, Laughter Yoga will celebrate it's 20th Anniversary. In addition to social Laughter Clubs, Laughter Yoga is also practiced in companies and corporations, fitness centers, yoga studios, senior centers and homes, schools, colleges, universities, cancer centers, prisons, day care centers etc.
