Laughter Yoga is a unique concept that allows people to laugh without the use of comedy or jokes. It is called Laughter Yoga as it combines Yogic breathing with laughter exercises. We use laughter exercises, eye contact and if people are willing it creates the potential to change fake laughter into authentic laughter. There is scientific evidence to prove that the brain cannot tell the difference between real and fake laughter anyway so we get the same benefits. It was created in 1995 by a Medical Doctor called Dr Madan Kataria.
