Dr. Madan Kataria developed Laughter Yoga. He organized the first Laughter Yoga Club in 1995, with 5 people in a park in Mumbai India. It was a research project to see if he could duplicate the benefits he was reading about, concerning laughter, and to discover for himself if laughter would help his patients.
In 25 years Laughter Yoga is now practiced in over 100 countries with tens of thousands of free laughter clubs operating in enlightened communities on six continents. All accomplished without advertising, by word-of-mouth, one person telling another, about the life-changing experience daily laughter is. Laughter is contagious.
