When you meet a lot of difficulties or pressure in your life, what should you do? Are you sad, are you upset or are you confident? If you feel sad or have too much pressure, why don’t you join the laughter yoga Club?
Today, laughter yoga is a world movement(运动), with 5,000 clubs in Asia, America and Europe. “People are killing themselves with pressure in the workplace,” said Kataria, an Indian worker. “Suddenly, I had an idea one early morning,” said Kataria. “Why not start a laughter club?”
On the same day, Kataria invited a few friends and shared jokes with them. This encouraged him very much. Kataria thinks that children could laugh 400 times a day — compared to grown-ups, who laugh less than 15 times — because children laugh for no reason. Thanks to Kataria, every morning, members of the club practice the Namaste laughter, or Greeting laughter.
Laughter yoga has greatly helped some people who have lost all hope, like 80-year-old Somoti, who said she had lost the use of her legs before joining it. The doctor also said she wouldn’t stand by using his legs. But now she can go to the club on foot. Today, she is back on her feet and enjoys the club every morning. That has given Somoti a good reason to smile.
