Laughter Yoga combines simulated laughter with gentle yoga breathing techniques. There are no contortions, no fancy movements. Even you can do it! It was started by Dr. Madan Kataria in Mumbai India in 1995 who as a medical doctor was writing an article entitled Laughter is the Best Medicine. We have all heard that line enough as it has been used by many individuals who have overcome or greatly improved there health and well being by focusing on joy and getting there more and more through laughter.

It’s beneficial for the body and the mind.
There are playful exercises designed to reduce inhibitions and shyfulness, value based exercises designed to bring about positive feelings and shifts in attitudes, and there are the physical exercises designed to increase mobility and ease of movement. These different exercises when combined will assist each participant with an excellent cardio and mid body workout. In hearty laughter the heart rate can increase in one minute where it would take 10 minutes to achieve on exercise machines. The body and the brain receive more oxygen, reduce the stress related cortisol and increase the feel good endorphins which make a person feel much better.
