Laughter Yoga with Physically Challenged in USA
The city of Bangalore, also known as Silicon Valley of India, has the distinction of having more than 70 Laughter Clubs. One of these is at the institute for mentally and physically challenged children. One day, a teacher from the institute, also a Laughter Club member, decided to conduct a laughter session with these special children. She found them more cheerful and energized throughout the day. Highly inspired, she introduced Laughter Yoga in the curriculum, and it was seen that many children who did not respond to their commands earlier, responded spontaneously after doing laughter exercises. It also helped to improve their physical and mental well-being.
