Laughter Yoga was created by a medical doctor in India in 1995. It works on the concept that the mind can’t tell the difference between real and simulated laughter so all we have to do is put the body into a physical state of laughter and then the mind will follow.
Once this happens the body releases a cocktail of drugs that help cure, as well as heal a variety of conditions Come and hear the remarkable story of Merv Neal CEO of Laughter Yoga Australia who believes he was cured of a terminal illness through the effects of this process. Merv, sees himself as Australia’s the leading gelotologist which is the study of laughter and its effects on the body from both psychological and physiological perspective which is scientifically research based. Merv, has been involved in Laughter Yoga since 2002 and has given numerous talks to schools, businesses and community agencies. Come and try it for yourself and experience the difference laughter can have on your mind and body.
