"Laughter Yoga combines laughter with yogic breathing exercises. It 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.
Last year I highlighted Laughter Yoga on my TV program. I've tried it, and it works." (1/14/08)

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed this evening! I must admit that I was a bit sceptical at the beginning, but really got 'into' it once I warmed up. Can you please put me on the list for next month?
Still with a smile on my face

A little bit of history
2014 - We were at Glastonbury (again) and featured on the Chris Evans show with Alex Jones
We had our 10 year anniversary in September 2013, we had a live skype link with Dr Kataria in India, and we had a fab evening.
We were in the Spark magazine
We've featured on BBC1, Discovery Channel, BBC2, Radio 4 and at Cheltenham Science Festival (three times). We've chatted with Johnny Walker on Radio 2, and led the UK's 1st National Sponsored Laugh-a-thon with the British Heart Foundation. We're regulars at Glastonbury Festival.
'I just wanted to let you know how I have been getting on since I came to the last Laughter Club meeting in September. I have been following your instructions to smile first thing every morning and last thing at night. Wonderful!
I have to say that I have felt a real change in me. My face seems lighter and I feel more positive.
Last week whilst reading the news on Bristol hospital Radio my fellow news-reader read a funny story and I laughed until I cried and neither of us could finish the news through constant giggling. I do not remember the last time that I laughed that much and I wanted to thankyou for giving me courage to laugh out loud again.'

'Just wanted to share with you that when I got home, talking to a friend on a phone many hours later, I notice last night my cheeks where rosy and sore from so much smiling. The same feeling has been all day today, I’m also aware my laughter a work has gone up a few notches on the volume today at work. My thoughts of the event itself was ‘yes. Great fun. Really good’… having this silly smile on my face 24 later.. it now ‘yes. Great fun… truly amazing’.
Pls. put my email details on the mailing list (once it arrives) and by all means you anything I’ve said as testimonial in any marketing you like! Thanks '
'The workshop was just great. What a total relief to get out of my head and just let go. Really letting go with the laughing...my cheeks and tummy were aching after so much!!! Thank you. Amazing, after the workshop I seemed to have real energy coming from within and a sense of calm. So, I will practice this amazing gift.'
