Laughing Yoga – Mixing Laughter & Exercise

For the past couple of years, several hundred people have been meeting up in a public park in Ha Noi to do a unique kind of exercise – Laughing Yoga.

Laughing Yoga, combines exercise and laughing – 2 essential ingredients for a happy life. People that practice laughing yoga have said they have better health: a stronger immune system and improved body strength. It helps them feel younger and allows them to forget their worries.

Laughing Yoga classes run for 45 minutes. People can expect to laugh non-stop during these lessons. When I watch the video of the class, it looks so much fun! You can see everyone is enjoying themselves. When you laugh and exercise, your brain releases endorphins which results in a feel-good feeling.

Laughing Yoga was launched in 1995 by Dr Madam Kataria, now there are more than 6,000 clubs in 60 countries.
