Laughter Yoga is a wellness practice that was started by Dr. Madan Kataria and his wife in India. Also part of a peace movement, it is practiced in over 80 counties worldwide.
The simple exercises (laughing, stretching, and breathing) can be done by anyone.
Heavy on the laughter and light on the yoga, you don’t need to be flexible, have a yoga mat, wear any special clothing, or remember special poses like ‘mountain’ or ‘tree’.
~Motion creates emotion~
The pure act of smiling and laughing triggers chemical reactions in the brain, strengthens core muscles in your body and, if you’re open to it, core principles of living.
As an old Yiddish proverb says,
“What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul.”
