Ram Kumar: Growing up for me was a struggle with a single mom and four other siblings. Nothing came cheap and it was a real challenge. As an adolescent, I searched for the greater meaning of things, who am I? Or why was I here? You know the general questions of life we all seem to forget? Certain activities like martial arts and fitness kept me going for a while. Although it was good, it had its limits, and soon the questions weighed me down again. I was depressed and confused about more than half of things that went on in my life.
I was conducting Martial Training as an Instructor and Personal Fitness trainings as a business, and later I enrolled in the Republic Polytechnic to study health with grants from my local sports council. There I learnt about health, and in particular about anatomy and physiology and psychology only to realize how amazing in sync everything was. Then at 21 years of age, I came across Laughter Yoga through the web and felt a strong desire to pick up this program that made the turning point for my business and relationships. Laughter Yoga was truly a life changing experience It gave me my purpose of life.
After Laughter Yoga, I am inspired to seek better relationships. In fact, the quality of people in my life changed dramatically. Besides the many health benefits of laughter, I feel it teaches us to be more human. As a teacher of Laughter Yoga my mission is to bring out the laughter of others and convince them to share theirs with many more.
