What is Laughing Yoga ?
Laughing yoga is a unique practice in itself in which we " laugh for no reason" We use various " child like playfulness " or "games" to kick start laughter mainly for the health benefits associated like increased happiness, reduced stress and improves the level of energy/oxygen in the body or work efficiency. Laughing always feels good. :)
Here is a video link that will give you an idea of how it looks like, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGNOF8DVIPQ. A simple search on youtube with laughing yoga will tell you all about it.
Laughing yoga cuts the cultural, social,political, age, gender or any such barriers and help us to to connect as people using simple universal " laughter " . No matter if you're from Europe , south americal or Asia, we all have a common denominator that we " love to laugh"
Laughing Yoga was started by a medical doctor, Dr Madan Kataria in year 1995 , around 20 years ago in small park in mumbai, india and its now in over 100 countries and thousands of people are associated with it from all around the world.
It is also based on a scientific fact that pretending to laugh and natural laugh has same health benefits, your body doesn't know the difference between the two. In fact , many a times, a 'pretend' laugh becomes real and spontaneous and in many cases contagious especially in a group.
