History

Dr. Madan Kataria, a family physician based in Mumbai, was the first to introduce this festivity of laughter in India on 10 January 1998. He was the founder of the Laughter Yoga Movement in India which gradually spread globally. Dr. Kataria had started off this venture after his study that facial expressions have a genuine effect on our health. Thus, he practiced laughter along with his patients so that their health remains strong and immune.
