With Laughter Yoga, join the worldwide movement and discover how laughter really is the best medicine!

This book will show you how to bring laughter into your life at any time of the day - no special equipment needed, no new wardrobe, no expensive classes, not even a sense of humour!

Laughter Yoga is all about voluntary laughter - how you can learn to laugh even in the absence of humorous stimuli, and reap the extraordinary, scientifically proven benefits, which include stress reduction, pain relief, weight loss and enhanced mood. If you act happy, you'll become happy - your body can't tell the difference.

The exercises in Laughter Yoga combine voluntary laughter with yogic breathing to give you a full mind-body workout. And it turns out that laughter is the fastest way to reduce stress and the best kind of cardio: 30 minutes of hearty laughter is equal to thirty minutes on the rowing machine.

Review quote

Laughter yoga is a perfect way to laugh and get exercise at the same time. It approaches laughter as a body exercise so it's easy to
laugh even if you're depressed or in a bad mood...I've tried it, and it works. * Oprah Winfrey, Courier-Mail * I can't think of any other body-mind technique that has caught on this way. I told [the] American Senate Committee during a hearing
about healthcare reform that laughter yoga could help lower American healthcare costs. * Dr. Andrew Weil * Laughter yoga exemplifies a form of 'right-brain thinking' that managers should promote. * Daniel H. Pink * Laughter connects you with people. It's almost impossible to maintain any kind of distance or any sense of social hierarchy when you're just
howling with laughter. Laughter is a force for democracy. * John Cleese, after visiting a laughter club in Mumbai during the filming of BBC's TV series The Human Face *
