Laughter Yoga
Pranayama, Retreats, Workshops

Laughter Yoga (Hasya Yoga) from the school of Dr. Madan Kataria. Discover this unique technique which combines Yogic Breathing (Pranayama) with voluntary laughter and playful Laughter Exercises/Asanas to encourage health, flexibility, friendship and peace.

Laughter Yoga is a global phenomenon with Laughter Clubs in more than 70 countries. In much of India, Laughter Yoga is as popular as Tai Chi is in China: go to a public park and you can see myriad groups practicing Therapeutic Laughter throughout the day.

The Laughter Yoga Institute offers comprehensive programs ranging from fundamental training (become a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader in one 2-day weekend) to graduate-level education (become an authorized Teacher/Trainer in a 5-day intensive). Introductory workshops are presented regularly. We joyfully offer courses which interweave traditional Hatha Yoga with the innovations of Laughter (Hasya) Yoga. Most of our staff are also active teachers of classical Yoga. You can count on The Laughter Yoga Institute for: rousing workplace seminars, inspiring program development, hilarious retreats and exhilarating travel adventures.

Classes are offered daily on the sand in Laguna Beach:

Thanks to the daily sessions of Laguna Laughter Club, our staff members are the most experienced Laughter Yoga exercise leaders in the western world. We have appeared on Oprah, Dancing with the Stars, Geraldo, and CNN-TV with Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Enjoy video clips here:
