Try Laughter Yoga This Summer!

Laughter yoga is a simple exercise program that combines stretching, breathing, laughter and relaxation. According to San Diego laughter yoga instructor Dr. Funshine, “Laughter yoga focuses on a combination of breathing, stretching and playful exercises that help us relax and, as a result, lowers our stress, improves our health and leaves us feeling great!”

Started by Dr. Madan Kataria in Mumbai India in 1995, laughter yoga is now popular around the world and it’s available in several locations in San Diego. One of its great advantages is that everyone can do it. Many classes combine young and old. A good sense of humor or even a good mood is not necessary—surprisingly, putting the body through a series of laughter exercises can create the same health benefit as genuine laughter.
