Laughter Yoga is a revolutionary idea — simple and profound. It was invented by Dr. Madan Kataria, a physician from Mumbai, India in 1995 and has become a worldwide phenomenon with more than 10,000 social laughter clubs in 70 countries. The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on the scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter; one gets the same physiological, psychological and social benefits.
In this session, you are going to experience both the stimulating and cooling elements of laughter yoga in a group, explore and expand your possibilities, and learn to be a smart “person in charge” for your happiness and health!
大笑瑜伽(Laughter Yoga) 是一項革命性的群體帶氧活動，由印度醫生Dr. Madan Kataria 於1995年發明，現時已普及至全球超過七十個國家。科學研究顯示，人的大腦不能分辨真笑與假笑，兩者都能刺激大腦釋放「快樂」賀爾蒙胺多芬，提升心情，為人們帶來生理、心理和社交的益處。
