What is Laughter Yoga?

Laughter yoga is a fun, effective way to exercise and socialize while receiving the mind-body health benefits of laughing. Laughter yoga was created in 1995, when a medical doctor, Dr. Madan Kataria, first combined breathing exercises from yoga with improvised laughter exercises. Laughter Yoga has turned into an international health movement that has quickly traveled around the world.

Abdominal Workout: Laughter yoga can serve as a great exercise for your abs due to the movements involved while laughing. LY has a positve effect on trunk muscle acivation.

Protects Heart and Lungs: Laughter Yoga helps you flow. By improving blood vessel function and increasing blood flow, laughter yoga benefits cardiovascular health and enhances lung capacity.

Elevates Mood: LY is a quick me me up. The secretion of mood-enhancing hormones like dopamine and endorphins during laughter yoga, can uplift your mood instantly.
