Laughter Yoga

My name is Dawn Tyson Laughing Yoga practitioner, work full time as a Case Manager for a non profit agency and I'm a single mom of an adult son. While on my own personal journey of self love and self care I came across this training being offered at Toivo. A local holistic wellness center located in Hartford, CT. I became certified laughing yoga teacher In November 2017 and has been providing this training in other wellness center throughout CT.

I believe that this can touch many people of all ages and cultures.

Laughing Yoga was discover in March 1995 by a medical doctor in Mumbai, India by Dr. Madan Kataria, MD. He also wrote an article on Laughter- The Best Medicine for health journal. Then he decided to have a laughing session in March 1995 in a park. The small group grew to 50 people. Then Dr. Kataria later brought it to the United States in 1997.
