Welcome to Laughter Yoga Indonesia
What is Laughter Yoga?
Laughter Yoga is a unique concept where anyone can laugh without reason. We don't rely on sense of humor, jokes or comedy. Developed by Dr. Madan Kataria, an Indian physician from Mumbai who started the first laughter club in a park on 13th March 1995, with just 5 people. Today, it has become a worldwide phenomenon with more than 6000 social laughter clubs in 65 countries.
Laughter Yoga combines laughter exercises with yogic breathing (Pranayama). This allows more oxygen to enter the body making one feel more energetic, healthy and ridding the body of harmful toxins.
What happens in a Laughter Yoga Club?
We laugh in a group and initiate laughter as a form of exercise. Through eye contact and child-like playfulness, laughter then becomes contagious and real. It is based on the scientifically proven fact that the body cannot tell the difference between artificial and real laughter. You get the same benefits to your health, even from the first session! You must experience this at least once!
As a form of exercise, Laughter Yoga is simple, safe and appropriate for all, regardless of their cognitive, sensory or motor abilities / limitations. All are welcome. No previous experience is required.
A typical session in a Laughter Yoga Club
- Introduction to movements and rhythms

Why join a Laughter Yoga Club?
Laughter Yoga helps you laugh through life’s challenges. Anything can happen anytime, so it’s important to have a strong positive mental attitude ready to deal with any negativity that may come your way.
A natural laugh only lasts in 3-4 second intervals and depends on a real condition that may or may not happen. In a Laughter Yoga Club you don’t leave laughter to chance. You get real benefits through exercises that provide 10-15 minutes of continuous laughter which comes from the diaphragm. A Laughter Club is a safe environment for unconditional laughter. It’s a commitment to your wellbeing.
