What is laughter yoga?

Also called Hasyayoga, this is a concept initially devised by Jiten Kohi, an Indian yoga expert, and made popular by Dr Madan Kataria in an exercise form. True to its name, it is about making individuals laugh and no it needn't be by remembering or watching something funny. On the other hand, it could entail laughing for no reason at all. Another way of describing laughter yoga would be - a combo of laughter + breathing exercises.
