LAUGHTER YOGA! - a exercise practice involving voluntary laughter with yogic breathing (Pranayama yoga). Laughter Yoga is based on the belief that free laughter provides the same physiological and psychological benefits as spontaneous laughter, without the use of jokes or comedy.

Laughter Yoga is done in small to large groups, with eye contact, movement and playfulness between participants. Creative laughter soon turns into real and contagious laughter. 

In 1995, Laughter Yoga was started by cardiologist DR. MADAN KATARIA with his wife, yoga instructor, MADHURI KATARIA of INDIA.  

In the early morning they met to practise with a group of 5 people in a community park in Mumbai.  Dr. Kataria writes about the practice in his 2002 book LAUGH FOR NO REASON. 

Laughter Yoga is now practiced in Laughter Yoga Clubs and meetups, in over 100 countries - with school children to seniors, government, health, education, social and corporate employees as a highly creative way to eliminate stress and break down superficial barriers. 


Laughter Yoga has no religious or political practices or affiliations. 


Laughter Yoga sessions start with gentle warm-up techniques which include stretching, chanting (Ha-Ha Ho-Ho-Ho) clapping and body movement.  Once comfortable in a happy sharing space, all participants are allowed to create their own style of laughter and improvise on the exercises.  The session may finish with "Mindful Awareness Meditation" which often leads to a healthy emotional catharsis and also a feeling of release and joyfulness that can last for days.

ONI (Oh-nee) is available to guide participants on an on-going weekly or a one time experience in 60 minute sessions. 

See the benefits listed below for Corporate, Youth & Seniors.
