What is the Laughter Yoga Movement?

Laughter Yoga was started in 1995 by Dr. Madan Kataria, a medical doctor, who was writing an article about laughter being the best medicine for what ails us. It came to him that if laughter was so important to our well being why were we not laughing daily. With that in mind, he started a Laughter Club with the sole purpose of laughting daily about anything or nothing. From the humble beginnings of the Laughter Yoga Club that was started in the park in Mumbai India, Laughter Yoga has spread to more than 70 countries. There are currently thousands of clubs throughout the world.

How can I become part of the Laughter Yoga Movement?

Easy. Join a Laughter Club or better yet take the two day Laughter Yoga Leader Training and start one!

What does becoming a Laughter Yoga Leader allow me to do?

Becoming a Laughter Yoga Leader allows you to start a Laughter Club in the area you live. It also allows you to give presentations to your community on why laughter is so important in our lives. The joy and benefits of laughter are passed by you to others. Successful Laughter Yoga sessions require a skilled leader. Laughter Yoga is about "developing joy, becoming more emotionally sensitive, developing feelings of caring and sharing, and improving your mental attitude".
