Laughter Yoga

In November 2016, Vireo became a certified Laughter Yoga facilitator. One of her teachers for the training, Dr. Kasim Al-Mashat (who was trained by Dr. Kataria himself), said, “Vireo you are a natural laughter blaster.” Her bubbling joyous unique laughter has always been very contagious since she was a young child. Laughter Yoga now gives Vireo permission and the credentials to share her gift with world. Laughter Yoga is one of the many ways that Vireo uses to embody her intention to bring more joy and pleasure to the world.

What is Laughter Yoga?

Laughter Yoga is a series of movement and breathing exercises designed to stimulate laughter and cultivate an inner spirit of joy. It is a technique that invites laughter without using jokes or humour. Laughter Yoga is a blend of yoga-based deep breathing, gentle stretching, simulated laughter exercises and playful games and activities. Laughter Yoga was created in 1995 by Dr. Madan Kataria, a family physician in India who wanted to find an alternative way of treating his patients, many of whom were suffering from illness related to stress.
