Laughter Yoga - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Laughter yoga (Hasyayoga) is a practice involving prolonged voluntary laughter. Laughter yoga is based on the belief that voluntary laughter provides the same physiological and psychological benefits as spontaneous laughter. Laughter yoga is done in groups, with eye contact and playfulness between participants. Forced laughter soon turns into real and contagious laughter. Laughter yoga does not involve humor or comedy.

Laughter yoga was made popular as an exercise routine developed by Indian physician Madan Kataria, who writes about the practice in his book Laugh For No Reason.[1]

In the mid-1990s Laughter Yoga was practiced in the early mornings, primarily by groups of older men in open parks. Later, a more formalized version was created and popularized as "Laughter Clubs". Kataria's first Laughter Yoga Club began on 13 March 1995 in Mumbai; beginning with five people in a local public park,[citation needed] the concept has rapidly spread worldwide. As of 2011, there are more than 8,000 Laughter Clubs in 65 countries.[citation needed] Each club has its own Laugh Captain and operates as an independent cell.
