Laughter Yoga is quickly spreading naturally into many different areas as people come to realize how the benefits can improve their lives. Its mission is to provide good health, joy and create a world without pain and illness. Laughter Yoga helps people to deal positively with mental, physical and emotional stresses that can otherwise lead to a breakdown in the workplace and in their private lives. It seeks to build an international community of like-minded people who come and laugh together and receive multiple health benefits.

Laughter Yoga is a unique form of exercise that was founded in 1995 by Dr. Madan Kataria, a medical doctor from Mumbai, India, where anyone can laugh for no reason without the need for jokes or comedy. Dr. Kataria, and his wife, Madhuri, developed a program that combines laughter as a physical and playful body exercise with yoga in the form of deep yogic breathing (no poses). Scientific research shows that the body does not know the difference between real or fake laughter. So, while the laughter often is initially forced, it soon becomes real due to eye contact and the contagious nature of laughter in a group. What started as one group of 5 people in a park in Mumbai on March 13, 1995, has now grown to become a worldwide phenomenon with more than 8000 clubs in over 79 countries. Laughter Yoga has four active ingredients: laughing, singing, dancing and child-like playfulness.  It doesn’t work however, until it is actually used!  No special equipment or clothing is needed. It is a great exercise for people of all ages. Keep in mind, 60 seconds of laughter equals 10 minutes on a rowing machine. Laughter Yoga is a high impact cardiovascular workout so drink plenty of water.

 “At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities”. Jean Houston

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” —Harriet Tubman

 “Laughter makes us more imaginative and creative. It improves our sense of humour.”
~~~~~Albert Einstein

The human brain has a left and a right hemisphere. The left side of the brain is analytical, logical, and concerned with learning skills. The capacity of the left side is LIMITED. The right side of the brain is concerned with intuition, imagination, inventions, music, art, creativity, meditation and healing. The power of the right side of the brain is UNLIMITED. One of the easiest ways to stimulate the right side of the brain is by playfulness. By being playful, it will unfold the unlimited potential of your being. 

Creative geniuses are child-like (not child-ish – there’s a difference). Children honor their dreams instead of squelching them, are naturally curious, follow their interests, go wherever their hearts lead them without asking why. They play for the sheer fun of it with no outcome in mind. They don’t worry about “looking silly” or “being right.” Children are open to life; they accept miracles as a natural part of life.

One can never possess what one has not imagined first. Albert Einstein’s most essential mode of discovery was what he called Gedanken – imagination games and thought experiments. He spent time every day dreaming.

One day he imagined riding on a sunbeam into the universe. He mentally traveled into eternity and discovered himself returning to the place from which he began.

He concluded that if he traveled forever in one direction and returned to the place he began, the universe must be “curved.” And so was born his theory of relativity.

The essence of the Laughter Yoga system is to cultivate childlike playfulness. This playfulness stimulates the right brain activity which is the seat of creativity. This helps to generate new ideas and new insights about workplace issues and problems.

All the breaks you need in life wait within your imagination, Imagination is the workshop of your mind, capable of turning mind energy into accomplishment and wealth. ~~Napoleon Hill

Mark Twin understood the need for laughter when he wrote: “The human race has only one really effective weapon, and that’s laughter. The moment it arises, all our hardnesses yield, all our irritations and resentments slip away, and a sunny spirit takes their place.”
