Mumbai - We've often heard that laughter is good for you. A doctor in Mumbai in India has come up with Laughter Yoga, a daily exercise which is good for your health and your soul.
The concept is the brainchild of Dr. Madan Kataria, a physician from Mumbai in India, who launched the first Laughter Club in a park on March 13, 1995.
Starting with just a few persons, the club has now become a worldwide phenomenon, with over 6,000 Social Laughter Clubs in around 60 countries worldwide.
The ultimate in a well being workout, Laughter Yoga combines Unconditional Laughter with Yogic Breathing (Pranayama). According to Kataria, anyone can laugh for no reason, without relying on humor, jokes or comedy.

When laughing is simulated as a body exercise in a group, with eye contact and playfulness, it can soon turn into genuine, contagious laughter.
According to Kataria, the body does not differentiate between fake and real laughter. Both apparently give the same physiological and psychological benefits.
