THE LAUGHTER YOGA FIDELITY PROJECT

Who can participate? If you are aged 60+, living  independently, ready to make a positive change in your life and available to take part in a four-session, multi-state demonstration project for older adults, we would love to have you join us!

Overall aim of the project is to demonstrate the physical and psychological benefits of Laughter Yoga as a valid path toward healthy aging. This project will involve the delivery of a standardized, four-session curriculum for Laughter Yoga with fidelity.

The four concurrent Laughter Yoga sessions will follow lesson plans which are based on the newly revised 40 Foundation Laughter Yoga exercises as created and demonstrated by Dr. Madan Kataria, the founder of Laughter Yoga.

Taking part in this project is completely voluntary and FREE. The decision to participate is entirely up to you. To successfully complete the course, you must attend at least three of the four sessions.

A part of the project involves your completing several forms. The records of this project will be kept private. In any sort of report we make public we will exclude any information that will make it possible to identify you.

We are seeking at least 10 individuals for each study group.

Why should you consider participating?

Laughter Yoga is being practiced around the world in 105 countries at over 6000 laughter clubs.

Schools, private groups, corporations, hospitals, combat vets, cancer fighters, retirement communities etc. are integrating Laughter Yoga into their wellness programs.

This is a great opportunity for you to volunteer, add more personal joy, laughter and play to your life AND  to help others in the process!

In the USA, we are focused on obtaining  the designation for Laughter Yoga as a highest tier Title III- Evidence-Based Disease Prevention/Health Promotions Program.

This project will help demonstrate the physical and psychological benefits of Laughter Yoga as a valid path toward healthy aging.

We can achieve this with your help and participation!

Once we obtain our goal, more audiences will become aware of the significant health benefits of Laughter Yoga and it will spread into all types of communities, helping to brighten people’s lives.

Laughter is the best medicine if you get your daily dose.

Your participation will

  1. Allow you to experience 4-FREE, uplifting Laughter Yoga sessions.
  2. Help us record your important feedback.
  3. Allow us to collect vital data needed to fulfill the research criteria and meet our objectives.
  4. Inspire others to try Laughter Yoga and to keep up a daily laughter practice.

Thank you for your interest.  We look forward to laughing with you!

You can be part of it! Sign up now!
