Founded by Dr. Kataria and his wife in Mumbai, India, Laughter Yoga (LY) combines the known health benefits of deep belly breathing exercises with playful activities for a great workout. A LY session if followed by guided visualizations (like the "humming bee") where we quiet the mind and enjoy waves of laughter nectar flowing through our body. Just as smiling can do more for your facial muscles than frowning, imagine what a hearty belly laugh can do! Laugh out loud with others and live life to the fullest!
