Q. How can I laugh as much as I want to, without using jokes or comedy?
A. Easily. We will show you how.
Q. Is this voluntary laughter as good as genuine hilarious laughing?
A. This work is founded in the scientifically demonstrated principle that your body doesn't make a distinction between deliberate laughter and involuntary laughter. So long as your willful laughter is done with a playful attitude, you get all the health benefits of genuine laughter. We laugh from having fun, instead of laughing "at" something perceived as funny. (PS: Having fun IS funny.)
Q. Is there real science behind this?
A. The work was developed by Indian physician Dr. Madan Kataria in collaboration with his wife Madhuri, a teacher of traditional Yoga. There is now abundant evidence, both anecdotal and through rigorous scientific testing, which shows that Laughter Yoga provides numerous health benefits, physical as well as psychological.
