|Laughter Yoga is a unique technique devised by Dr Madan Kataria, a doctor from India, whereby you can learn to “Laugh for no Reason”You don’t even need a sense of humour, no funny jokes or comedy programmes – just a willingness to laugh – and in the current climate everyone needs to laugh more Laughter Yoga is a combination of Laughter Exercises with Yogic Breathing (pranayama), so that you increase the amount of oxygen in your body whilst being playful resulting in you feeling more healthy, energised and alive.
Julie had already been practicing yoga for over 20 years when she trained to be a Laughter Yoga Leader with Dr Kataria in 2002 and a Laughter Yoga Teacher in 2009. She was awarded Laughter Ambassador status by Dr Kataria in 2006 for spreading laughter yoga around the UK and she is passionate about helping people to live the happiest, healthiest life they can.
Laughter actually changes the physiology of your body so that you start to feel happier. When you make eye contact with someone and you are both willing to laugh, the laughter is multiplied. One interesting thing is because the body doesn’t know the difference between fake and genuine laughter, as long as you are willing to laugh you will experience the same health benefits and the laughter will become genuine Laughter Yoga started in a park in Mumbai in 1995 with just 5 participants, and now there are over 6,000 laughter clubs in 60 different countries – showing the willingness of the world to laugh together
