Laughter is the Best Medicine

Monday, 5th October 2015

Gary Walker was joined by Harish Chavda, a Laughter Yoga instructor on the Radio Harrow Breakfast Show.

Harish prides himself on making people laugh; he explained all about the different types of laughter and its many benefits.

He runs the Harrow laughter club where he uses laughter as a therapy. He describes how his therapies have helped cancer patients and people suffering from mental illnesses.

Harish led Gary through live warm-up exercises designed to relax the body. He then  began laughter yoga demonstrations which listeners were encouraged to join in with, these included “laughter mantras” and “laughing for no reason”.
