What is Laughter Yoga:
Laughter Yoga was created in the mid-1990s by a Physician from India, Dr. Madan Kataria with the support of his wife Madhuri Kataria – a yoga teacher. I had the opportunity to train with them, which inspired me to teach Laughter Yoga Certification Trainings since 2011.
Laughter Yoga is a unique exercise routine which combines unconditional laughter with yogic breathing (pranayama), and playful exercises and activities. Anyone can laugh without relying on humor, jokes or comedy.
Laughter is initially simulated as a physical exercise while maintaining eye contact with others in the group and promoting playfulness. Laughter Yoga has quickly grew as a grassroots social movement of independent laughter clubs, promoting the ideal of a non-political, non-religious, non-racial, non-threatening, and non-competitive voluntary (simulated) approach to laughter. It has spread to over 100 countries.
What to expect:
Fourth Monday of every month (except for December).
