ALL ABOUT ME
Through much soul searching, prayers and meditation I finally found my purpose in life. I came across this unique technique in October 2011 that has brought joy and happiness in my life – Laughter Yoga.
Hi, I'm Anju Shahani
I had been participating in Laughter Yoga sessions from time to time in a Mumbai park approximately 7-10 years ago. I used to visit with my mother-in-law who was an active participant and was also crowned Laughter Queen in 2002. Then I stumbled upon the idea of Laughter Yoga on television in October 2011 by pure chance. After researching, I understood that there were no laughter clubs in Moscow, Russia. I headed straight to Bangalore, India in January 2012 to get enlightened by the Guru.
I felt the need to inspire my friends, family, and people to live a more happy, joyful and healthy life!
Laughter Yoga is about breathing and laughing exercises that make a person laugh without any reason or without comedy or jokes.
I believed it was a great project to bring to Moscow since I felt Russian people did not laugh enough.
Laughter Yoga helped me relax and be more positive This was the first time ever Moscow had started Laughter Yoga and I was surprised to see how receptive people in Moscow were to it.
Having moved to the Middle East Kuwait city in April 2014, I realized I was the only female Laughter Yoga teacher in this part of the world. I started organizing Laughter Yoga workshops and spreading this great tool. Also, it was a great opportunity for me to meet different people and make new friends in a completely new continent.
