Welcome to the Bay Area Laughter Yoga homepage!
Laughter Yoga is a revolutionary idea – simple and profound. An exercise routine, it is sweeping the world and is a complete wellbeing workout. Developed by a medical doctor from India, Dr. Madan Kataria, in 1995, it has spread across 72 countries. For more information on the history of laughter yoga and where to find more groups and leaders, visit www.laughteryoga.org.
Here you will find a list of local laughter yoga “clubs” that meet to practice laughter on a regular basis. They are led by Certified Laughter Yoga Leaders or Teachers. These groups are open to anyone, and drop-ins are always welcome but RSVP may be required. Some are free and some ask for a donation to defray rent and other expenses.
Clicking on any of these will take you to the organizers’ website or email. Please be sure to contact them directly to verify the current schedule and location. Many of us also offer customized presentations to business and community groups, and trainings so you too can lead a laughter yoga group.
