In 1995, Dr. Madan Kataria began an article he titled “Laughter – The Best Medicine.” He found decades of research on the therapeutic effects of laughter and wanted to investigate further. He managed to convince four people at a public park in Mumbai, India, to start a laughter club. At first they used jokes, but when the jokes ran out, they began to laugh at nothing. It was the genesis of laughter yoga. At last count, there were more than 8,000 laughter yoga clubs in 65 countries…including one right here in Concord, New Hampshire. Sean Hurley strapped on his giggle goggles for this radio field trip.
