World laughter day 2020 Zoomathon was a great success and thanks to Ishvinder in India, we now have a lovely video memory of the day.
Also I had a nerdy moment and have looked up the statistics on zoom which I would love to share with you. So we ran the zoom room continuously from 8am to just after midnight on Sunday 3rd May 2020. We had 30 amazing laughter yoga professionals from all over the world participate including 5 laughter yoga leaders trained by myself at The Laughter Yoga Wellness Training Academy. The founders of laughter yoga Dr Madan Kataria and Mrs Madhuri Kataria joined us to share laughter yoga which was just the icing on the cake! Now for the really nerdy facts. Playing around with my zoom account I have discovered that 770 participants visited us and received 412 hours (24,773 minutes) of laughter over the duration of 16.2 hours (972 minutes) HaHa 🙂 Now that was spreading a lot of laughter around the globe!
We are already preparing for World Laughter Day in London with a fabulous Laughter Crawl and Flash Mob planned. We will be meeting in a Central London location and delivering smiles and laughter along the way with the message of World Peace to those we meet. We will be laughing on public transport, tube laughter 🙂 and visiting various locations in London.
Free to join us and open to everyone. We will be joined by members of our London Laughter Club, other Laughter Yogis and members of the public. All that is required is a willingness to join us in spreading Laughter, the message of Peace and Joy.
For a taste of what to expect, here’s what we got up to last year at one of our stops in Embankment Gardens. Fingers crossed for another sunny beautiful day this year. To join us please scroll down to registration link 🙂
World Laughter Day takes place on the first Sunday of May. This year it falls on 7th May. The first celebration was in India almost 20 years ago and was arranged by Dr. Madan Kataria, founder of Laughter Yoga.
Laughter Yoga says: Laughter is a positive and powerful emotion that has all the ingredients required for individuals to change themselves and to change the world in a peaceful and positive way.
Our mission to bring good health joy and world peace through laughter.
On this day the laughter club members and their friends and families get together in important squares public parks to laugh together and pray for world peace.
How Can We Bring World Peace Through Laughter?
Laughter is a universal language we all speak without any language barrier. Laughter Clubs are a powerful tool to connect people from different cultures and countries and provide social network of people who care for each other. By setting up laughter clubs all over the world we are creating a worldwide community of like-minded people who believe virtues like unconditional love and laughter generosity & forgiveness.
Formula is very simple -When you laugh; you change and when you change the world changes around you.
