Laughter Yoga is an exercise routine that increases joy, relieves stress, and delivers a fun, uplifting experience.
Certified Laughter Leaders guide participants in sessions that combine laughter exercises with deep yoga breathing.
No joking, talking or humor is required. Laughter Yoga does not depend on your mood at all. You just need enthusiasm and an open mind.
Laughter for mind, body and soul
Studies by Laughter Yoga International and founder Dr. Madan Kataria reveal physiological, emotional, and mental benefits to Laughter Yoga.
In Laughter Yoga, you laugh deliberately and intentionally. Your body can’t tell the difference between simulated and spontaneous laughter. But the benefits are the same – you will achieve stress relief, a boost in energy and other positive results with a Laughter Yoga session.

We Love the way U Laugh!
"My first class with The Laughing Love Bugs was at the height of the Covid crisis in NYC. There was so much anxiety in the air but after an uplifting session, I was vibrating with such good energy. Nothing heals the soul like laughter they say and The Laughing Love Bugs have the perfect prescription! Try a class and see for yourself!"
Jovani, Professional Model/Actress
"I was having a rough week grieving the loss of family and was reluctant to do the session but I feel so grateful that I did because I went from feeling sad to sky high good! You two are amazing and the uplifting energy you project is contagious and definitely needed at this time when stress and fear is so prevalent in our lives. Laughter is definitely good for the soul. I’ll be back for sure."
Jeremiah, Behaviorist, State of New Jersey
"Lately I was feeling overwhelmed with the demands of college and working a full time job. This laughter yoga session helped me to relieve my stress in mind and body. I felt so energized and relaxed at the same time. I’m so shocked the effects lasted into the into the next day. I still can’t believe the long lasting effects. I wish it was offered as a college course elective. I never knew about all the health benefits to Laughter!"
