Bangalore to House World’s First International Laughter University

BANGALORE: First of its kind, a laughter university is going to launch soon in India in Bangalore. It will be the World’s first International Laughter University and will offer courses on laughter yoga therapy.

The university will be the first to teach basic principles of living stress free life. On the university campus, students will learn how to cope up with stress and hard times and how once can remove stress from their life.

Madan Kataria, a physician from Mumbai, is a person behind such a wonderful thought and the Tech city Bangalore will house the university, the city where several IT engineers work for late hours and leading a stressful life. The university will be about five kilometres away from the city on the road to Mysore.

Laughter Therapy

“If all goes well, then by April-May 2011, I will start my first certified Laughter Yoga teacher training in the university complex,” Madan Kataria told reporters. The University will be called Laughter Yoga University.

Kataria has earned a name by popularising ‘Laughter Yoga’ therapy that combines unconditional laughter with yogic breathing or ‘pranayama’. “The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits,” he said.

“It is a huge project. In the first phase, we will have an auditorium for conferences and conventions, training rooms, stay facility for 200 people, library, dining hall, meditation rooms, administrative block and staff residence,” he added.

As per the information gathered from sources close to the development, the project may take 18 months to two years for completion. However, the training programmes will be started by next three months and further construction will go on.

Really!! It would be delight to learn how to be happy rather to mug up the same routine course books!! Just wait and watch what is in store for students in the University for Greater Benefits of mind and body!!
