"In Laughter Yoga, we don’t laugh because we are happy. We are happy because we laugh.” - Dr. Kataria

In 1995, husband and wife super-duo Dr. Madan Kataria and Madhuri Katari invented Laughter Yoga in Mumbai, India and later opened Laughter Yoga University, which helped create the global laughter club phenomena.

In addition to being an inspiring guest speaker on the subjects of holistic health, stress management, team building and leadership, Dr. Kataria, (called the “guru of giggling” by the London Times) is a physician and author of over a dozen books related to laughter and wellness.
