“The more you laugh, HA HA HA HA!
The more you fill with glee, HA HA HA!
And the more the glee, HA HA HA HA!
The more we’re a merrier we! HA HA HA!” ~ Mary Poppins & friends

History of Laughter Yoga:
In March of 1995, a medical doctor in Mumbai, India named Dr. Madan Kataria set out to write an article entitled “Laughter– The Best Medicine” for a local health journal. Discovering a wealth of evidence documenting the benefits of laughter on the human mind and body, Dr. Kataria went to a local park and recruited four people to join him in a morning laugh. The first laughter club was born. The movement has since grown exponentially, with over 6,000 clubs in more than 65 countries.
