Laughter yoga was developed in Mumbai, India in 1995 by Dr.Madam Kataria, a qualified medical doctor and his wife Madhuri, a yoga teacher. Dr. Kataria recognised that people were laughing less, more stressed and less playful, and that laughter had significant health benefits. Laughter yoga is being taught in 65 different countries and there are many laughter clubs.
Laughter Yoga is a group session of aerobic activity which turns fake laughter into real laughter. It consists of hand clapping rhythms, breathing exercises from yoga, and playful laughter exercises. The brain cannot differentiate between fake laughter and genuine laughter, and provides benefits of laughter.
In a group, laughter becomes contagious and the participants gain the benefits, which are well researched.
