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.

Benefits

Laughter not only delivers happiness but, also helps in improving our health in the following ways:  

  • Reduces Stress

Laughter helps in the reduction of the four stress hormones and builds our immunity. Thus, we develop both the physical and the emotional strength required to take up the challenges that come our way.
