Joy isn't merely incidental to our
spiritual quest, it is vital" (The Rebbe)
Laughter is one of the most normal and accepted ways in which humans embrace life: it is how we share love, express joy, cope with stress, and live in the present moment. Laughter Yoga is a unique stress- management approach to physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. It began in 1995 in Mumbai India, by a family physician named, Dr. Madan Kataria. Since its inception, it has spread to over 70 countries in more than 7000 laughter clubs worldwide. It is based on the idea that we don’t need comedy, humor, or jokes to laugh- it is simply a choice.
The mind and body cannot tell the difference between real or exercised laughter, therefore, we get the same biochemical and physiological benefits. When Laughter Yoga is practiced in groups, people report experiencing radiant health, as well as deep and joyful connection with oneself and others.
