"Just Laugh" is what Indian physician Dr. Madan Kataria prescribes. It's no joke that laughter is nature's most creative and the easiest way to keep healthy and safe. Dr. Kataria swept the world with Laughter Yoga, a unique exercise routine and a powerful tool for complete wellness. It started in 1995, when he launched the first Laughter Club with just five people laughing in a public park in Mumbai. Today, there are thousands of Laughter clubs in over 72 countries with countless people reporting reduced stress levels and life changing experiences.
What Is Laughter Yoga?
Laughter Yoga combines unconditional laughter with yogic breathing (Pranayama). Anyone can laugh for no reason, without relying on humor, jokes or comedy. Laughter is simulated as a body exercise in a group; with eye contact and childlike playfulness, it soon turns into real and contagious laughter. The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits.
Do You Want To Start A Free Social Laughter Club?
One of the most motivating factors for people to join Laughter Yoga Clubs is the belief in the multiple health benefits they will derive from it. People come regularly because it helps them to stay fit. Laughter clubs also provide a caring and sharing network which provides a sense of emotional security to people.
By imbibing the essence of Laughter Yoga and its characteristics, one can learn to handle any situation effectively without losing their composure. It helps to keep a positive mental attitude so that one can cope with negative situations and deal with difficult persons in a much better way than a normal person can.
Laughter Yoga Clubs Are Social Clubs - Free For All

Starting A Laughter Club:
To start a Laughter Club anywhere in the world, you first need to find a venue like a public park, an open ground, or a beach, where people can meet regularly and do Laughter Yoga. Then, you will need a trained and certified Laughter Yoga professional to conduct these sessions. Laughter Yoga International arranges trainings and workshops both in India and other countries around the world to certify laughter leaders and teachers who can run the Laughter Clubs and help people bring more laughter into their lives.
Healing Through Laughter Clubs
Members of Laughter Clubs laugh together daily, or weekly. The healing effects of laughter are different for each person according to their physical, mental, emotional problems and needs. The simple fact is that, for humans to be happy, one needs a network of healthy emotional relationships with a group of people who care about us, and about whom we care. To achieve this goal, Social Laughter Clubs have proved very valuable as they provide important social networking benefits, that have changed the lives of many, and driven them away from loneliness and isolation.
