Laughter Yoga is a series of movement and breathing exercises designed to stimulate laughter and cultivate an inner spirit of joy.  it is a technique that invites laughter without using jokes or humor. Laughter Yoga is a blend of yoga-based deep breathing, gentle stretching, simulated laughter exercises and playful games and activities.  Laughter Yoga was created in 1995 by Dr. Madan Kataria, a family physician in India who wanted to find an alternative way of treating his patients, many of whom were suffering from illness related to stress.

For centuries, people have known about the healing characteristics of laughter.  Recent scientific studies now confirm the old adage that “laughter is the best medicine”.  Laughter helps all systems of the body: respiratory, circulation, nervous, endocrine, and immune systems.  Laughter boosts the immune system, decreases blood pressure, relieves muscular tension and emotional/mental stress, helps with pain management, provides aerobic exercise for the whole body, improves breathing, stimulates digestion, and oxygenates blood, making one feel alert and energetic.
