What’s Unique About Us
We spearhead the Laughter Yoga movement in North America and have combined over a decade of experience in fitness and complementary medicine with our knowledge of Western science and Eastern wisdom to create the Laughter Wellness program, a unique set of exercise techniques that unleash positivity, playfulness and creativity. This program underpins the Laughter Yoga process of simulated laughter exercises and takes it to a new dimension.
The result of all our learning and accrued experience is best described by the testimonial of Reggie Well, the make-up artist of Oprah Winfrey: “I walked into your laughter session very depressed. It was Easter week-end and I was very lonely. What you had me do did not just lift stress from my body, it lifted stress from my soul.” (watch the video clip – read more testimonials). Our experience includes teaching at leading US Yoga Training Centers (Kripalu), Fortune 500 companies (Microsoft), Exclusive Spas (Cal-a-Vie Health Spa), top educational institutions (California Institute Of Technology), Big Government (US Department Of Veterans Affairs), leading medical schools (Loma Linda School Of Medicine) and many more.
We are still affiliated and strong supporters of the Dr Kataria School Of Laughter Yoga. Our deepest gratitude goes to and remains with Dr Kataria. We would not be here if he had not been there.
We are based in Los Angeles, California, USA.
