World Laughter Day 2010

Sunday was World Laughter Day! Thanks to the Levity Project and Dr. Alex Eingorn, World Laughter Day was celebrated at Union Square, in New York's subways, Grand Central Station, 42nd Street and in front of the United Nations.
Laughter was contagious in the subway cars as subway riders, laughter leaders and friends giggled, bursted out laughing and snorted away. There were "laughing escalators" and a Ho-Ho-Ha-Ha-Ha Laughter Party at Grand Central!  Check out this link to CNN's video:

Laughter Yoga

Laughter Yoga is a unique total workout which has become a worldwide phenomenon with more than 6,000 social laughter clubs in 65 countries.

In Laughter Yoga one can laugh for no reason at all.  It starts out with simulated laughter, with a little childlike playfulness, which turns into a genuine and contagious laughter. The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits.

Laughter Yoga has become a "hot" topic of discussion in the media.  There was a segment on the Oprah Winfrey Show; couple of weeks ago Dr. Oz did some laughter yoga on his show; and today CNN released a feature on Laughter Yoga! Please click on the link below:
