Laughter Yoga is a revolutionary idea for me, saying that we can laugh always, at any moment, without relying on external conditions. Moreover, in order to laugh, we do not need jokes, comedy or alcohol, just simple exercise routine. Laughter Yoga combines Unconditional Laughter with Yogic Breathing (Pranayama). Laughter is simulated as a body exercise in a group; with eye contact and childlike playfulness, it soon turns into real and contagious laughter. The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits.
Laughter Yoga was started by dr Madan Kataria, a Physician from Mumbai, India, who launched the first Laughter Club at a Park on March 13, 1995, with just 5 people. Today, it has become a worldwide phenomenon and there are thousands of Laughter Clubs in more than 72 Countries. It is being practiced in health and well-being centers, parks, schools, companies or prisons across the world. In India, Thailand, Philippines or Vietnam, Laughter Yoga was even taught to police and army groups.
I am lucky and grateful for the possibility of learning Laughter Yoga directly from the original source, at a teachers’ training run by dr Kataria in Bangalore. As the first trained in India certified Laughter Yoga teacher in Poland, I do my best to promote Laughter Yoga in Poland, giving regular trainings and workshops in Warsaw, Cracow, Lodz and other cities. I also open offer volunteer donations-based for everybody laughter yoga sessions in parks and public spaces and as part of my social mission has run a Laughter Yoga session for prisoners. I have also run sessions for companies and charity organizations, as well as a hotel with spa services. As a fluent English and Spanish speaker, I will be very happy to offer Laughter Yoga sessions to organized English or Spanish speaking groups in Poland and outside, it can be groups of foreigners visiting Poland or all kind of conferences, seminars, trainings which are organized in one of this languages.
Everyday I practice unconditional laughter to go with smile through the everyday challenges. You can find more information on Laughter Yoga and its applications worldwide on the official website .
